Title: The Mood/Tone Of The Film
Post by: Rulm on December 17, 2007, 02:48:52 AM
I just saw The Mist, and I loved it. It had a chilling atmosphere, and the tension that builds with the people in the supermarket was pretty exhausting!--In a good way! I didn't think that a movie about a "mist" would be suspenseful, but I was surprised. I think that if The Happening has a similar tone, it could be very effective. I think "wind" would replace "mist", though. After seeing The Mist, I am fairly confident that Night could pull off his story. ;D

That's cool, I had been somewhat interested in the Mist, but then I did some research on it and found out that it was just a typical slasher films with lots of blood, monsters, and gore.

Yea, The Mist is like that, but don't forget it's Stephen King... his writings aren't shallow. The movie is actually about something, which most "slasher" films are not.

Maybe you shouldn't rush out to see it, but I'm sure you'll find it's worth renting (most likely  ;))

Actually, The Mist wasn't your typical "slasher flick". It was mostly about human nature. It's about how people interact when in a life and death situation...If this was the will of god, would you kill someone to save yourself?...It's quite thought provoking. Yeah, it's gory, but it has many layers upon that.

I haven't seen the movie or any other Stephen King's movies except "Christene" that movie is awesome. I wish they come up with a new one. Anyone seen it when the car goes crazy.

No, I haven't seen it. I was never interested in watching Stephen King films, but after watching The Mist, I may go and check out a few. :)

whoever wrote that about the MIST is really stupid. there was like 2 scenes that had blood. nothing like a slasher film. more of an erie drama thriller.


watch it. its really good.

i didn't mean to sound mean but everyone ive ever talked to that saw the Mist hated it but me..... and it was sooooo amazing, and i cant see how people can be so dumb to look past the whole gore aspect and appreciate a movie with themes and heart.

I didn't feel like you were mean, it's just blood and gore permeate so much of film now, and in slasher films it is so incredibly excessive.

My older brothers saw the trailer, and they don't really like Night's films, but after they saw the trailer they were like, "Hey, that looks good, I might go see that."  I think one reason is because it appears Night is branching out, he's trying a new style, somewhat, and also doing some filming outside of Philly.
