I love me some Stephen King, and apparently so does that Frank Darabont fellow. Luckily, he also happens to make great movies, so hopefully this The Mist movie will turn out better than some of the other, less-succesful, King adaptions. Like say, The Mangler. I have high hopes as I feel creeping Cthulhuan creatures are inherently more cinematic that washing machines. Though I think we all can thank the awe-inspiring demon-powered transformation of the washing machine at the end of The Mangler for getting Transformers green-lighted (lit?). Michael Bay was clearly a big fan.
It was admittedly the best part of that movie though.
