Director Frank Darabont has had a brilliant career adapting Stephen King novels. He struck gold with the Oscar nominated The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile. Frank hits paydirt again with his incredibly dark and sinister adaptation of Stephen King's The Mist, a film that is sure to arouse controversy amongst Christian conservatives. Thomas Jane stars alongside Marcia Gay Harden, Andre Braugher, Laurie Holden, and Toby Jones. The plot centers around a group of people stuck in a supermarket during an attack by a supernatural mist. The Mist holds certain death for those that try to escape, but the situation inside the supermarket is equally dire. Mrs. Carmody, Marcia Gay Harden in another fantastic performance, stirs up trouble with her gospel of fire and brimstone. It's pretty hardcore, and I'd bet the religious right will not react favorably to Mrs. Carmody's response to the biblical 'end of days'.
Frank, who's cool as hell, spoke frankly about religion and fear. He throws down against the fear mongers, in film and reality alike. The cast who were present - Marcia Gay Harden, Andre Braugher, Toby Jones, Laurie Holden, and young Nathan Gamble also offer their views of The Mist and religion.
