Released Date: November 21, 2007

The Mist" is a science fiction/horror novel by the American author Stephen King, in which a small town in Maine is suddenly enveloped in a fog phenomenon. It was first published as the last and longest story of the 1980 horror anthology Dark Forces ,edited by Kirby McCauley.

David Drayton and his young son Billy are among a large group of terrified townspeople trapped in a local grocery store by a strange, otherworldly mist. David is the first to realize that there are things lurking in the mist... deadly, horrifying things... creatures not of this world. Survival depends on everybody in the store pulling together... but is that possible, given human nature? As reason crumbles in the face of fear and panic, David begins to wonder what terrifies him more: the monsters in the mist- or the ones inside the store, the human kind, the people that until now had been his friends and neighbors? 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.
