The final trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s The Mist has appeared online and it approaches the horror series from a slightly different angle. While a lot of the previous trailers have focused on the supernatural element this one appears to focus more on the human element. That in moments of panic fellow human beings can be much more dangerous than the monster lurking outside. It’s a pretty common theme in horror but The Mist also has a rather loud point to make. In the case of this adaptation it’s not just people that are dangerous but religious zealots who pose the biggest threat. It’s a great angle to zero in on as we live in a world constantly reeling from the actions of religious zealots.
Summary: After an eerie mist rolls into a small town, the residents must battle the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity.
The Mist was created by Christian Torpe and stars Morgan Spector, Frances Conroy, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Dan Butler, Luke Cosgrove, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, and Isiah Whitlock, Jr. The 10-episode season will start on June 22nd on Spike.
