My review of Frank Darabont's The Mist is up over at Revolution SF.
I got to go to a press screening, which was in a little metal building out in the middle of what used to be the Austin airport. There were only about 20-25 people there, most of whom knew each other. It was fun to see a movie and not have to worry about talking or cell phones and such, and for the most part these critics were able to let loose and really try to enjoy the movie. From the conversations I heard afterwards, some really enjoyed it. I did not.
But coming out of our little quonset hut surrounded by concrete and near a military base to an overcast day with, you guessed it, mist in the distance was quite an interesting experience.
