A Movie Not To Be Mist
Stephen King has always been one of my favorite authors. His writing style and imagination have taken me to deep, dark places in the most ordinary of settings. I guess that's why I like his books so much. However, Stephen's stories have also been translated into film for both the large and small screen over the years. In fact, his miniseries which have aired on several channels over the years, have garnered extremely high ratings and several of his stories have been very successful movies which opened to rave reviews and have been recognized by the highest awards, the Oscars. Who could ever forget Kathy Bate's role of Annie Wilkes as the sociopathic nurse in 'Misery'. This is still one of my all-time favorite Stephen King movies which now is shown from time to time on some of the old movie channels and I have never gotten tired of watching it. It still fills me with anxiety every time James Caan gets stranded in a snow drift, knowing full well what lies ahead for him. Even though I know how the story turns out in the end, I still find myself sitting on the edge of my seat each time he tries to escape. Like so many of Stephen's stories, the horror he creates often happens to people just like you and me and that, by far, is the scariest of stories. Now Stephen is lucky enough to have an equally frightening story translated to the big screen with the release of "The Mist". In fact, you can watch the ingtriguing trailer for this upcoming movie at The Mist by Stephen King which proves that this movie will be this season's holiday thriller not to be missed. This movie comes out just in time for the holidays and while other movies will take you to the North Pole, this movie will take you to another place and time that is far from elves and Santa Clause. What I really love about Stephen King's movies is that although they are scary, they are far from gorey. They casting is always great and the dialogue is smart and savvy. I am very much looking forward to the release of Stephen King's "The Mist" this holiday season and I am hoping that this one is at least as good as all the other stories by Stephen. So far, he hasn't let me down once.
