The Mist, Love It or Hate It?

Posted: January 8, 2015, 10:23
The movie version of The Mist or rather its ending has been the basis for a lot of discussions and arguments between King Fans ever since it was released. Today, thanks to Douglas Dowie, I found this editorial from Quint over at Ain’t it Cool News about the films ending and I think you should all read it. It’s very well written and it has a very good point.

Also, if you didn’t know it there is a different version of the movie cut by Kevin Karstens (check out his website here) with a different ending.

What do you think about the movies ending? Love it? Have it? Why do you feel like you do?

Mist Week continues

Posted: March 25, 2008, 00:10
The Mist week continues here on Lilja’s Library. Besides the contest you can also check out a new interview I have done with the movies director Frank Darabont. In the interview he talks about the movie and also what role he wanted Stephen King to play.

And as a thank you for all the support you are showing Lilja’s Library I’m also going to give away two signed (by Frank Darabont) posters for The Mist. All you have to do is tell me why I should give one of them to you in the “Comments to Lilja's Library” field when you enter the contest.

Good Luck!

Posted: March 24, 2008, 00:12

The Mist game

Posted: March 18, 2008, 22:21
Here you can play a Mist game. If you make it to the end there is a reward for you in the form of a preview clip with King and Darabont and the complete version is supposedly only going to be found on the rental version of the DVD.

DALLAS, March 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- "The Mist" is rolling in today, with Blockbuster Inc. launching a free online game inspired by the Stephen King film at its website, The game pits players against the predatory "Mist" creatures from the movie and highlights that BLOCKBUSTER(R) will have exclusive rentals of The Weinstein Company film when it is released on DVD on March 25.

Now through April 8, "The Mist" game will give gamers a chance to live the movie. Players must defeat a series of predators, battling their way through three levels based on scenes in the film. Those who escape the mist and win the game get a sneak peak of an exclusive interview with Stephen King and director/screenwriter Frank Darabont. The full version of this interview will be featured on the rental DVD, exclusively available at participating BLOCKBUSTER stores and online at

The public can access the game at In addition to the game, the landing page will feature the movie trailer, an option to rent the DVD and the option to receive a coupon redeemable for one $1.99 DVD rental at participating BLOCKBUSTER stores.

Based on the horror novella by Stephen King, "The Mist" tells the story of a mysterious mist that rolls into the town of Bridgton, Maine. David Drayton and his young son Billy are among a group of terrified townspeople who are trapped in a local grocery store by a strange, otherworldly mist. David is the first to realize there are "things" lurking in the mist -- deadly, horrifying things, not of this world. In this legendary tale of terror from master storyteller Stephen King, the thin veneer of civilization is stripped away, the masks are discarded and the true horror is revealed as us.

"The Mist" is part of an agreement that provides BLOCKBUSTER with exclusive U.S. rental rights to The Weinstein Company's theatrical and direct-to-video films, which are distributed by Genius Products, LLC. Other recent Weinstein Company releases made available for rent exclusively through Blockbuster include the Stephen King/Frank Darabont film "1408," "The Nanny Diaries" starring Scarlett Johansson, the Michael Moore documentary "Sicko" and the "Grindhouse" double feature including Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof" and Robert Rodriguez's "Planet Terror."
