I haven't posted any reviews on MoFo in a while, instead doing the heavy lifting elsewhere, but every now and then I am treated to a movie I love so much, I've got to share the review with as many as ...
This movie was a good monster/diaster movie. It had drama for older folks (or some younger) who like story lines and not just violence but it also had some pretty cool action scenes as well.
I love to play around with hyperbole like that found in the second real paragraph of this review, but the finale truth, as objective a truth as I feel I can provide, is that The Mist is, hands down, contest over, thanks all who entered, the best horror film of the year Two Thousand and Seven.
