Apparently, Stephen King's short story "The Mist" was just made into a movie, due to be released November 21st. Having just seen the trailer, it looks OK, but it suffers from what every other short-story-to-movie suffers from: not enough to make a full film out of, so things get added. Here, they've added some crap about half the group going all uber-religious, and it dividing the group, causing internal struggle. not that I don't believe that could or would happen, but it's NOT part of the story, and it seems needlessly important to the film.

Too bad, because it would have made a great film, on it's own, if they'd stuck to exploring the madness of isolation and the monsters themselves, instead of trying to add this craperoo.
