When a malevolent fog engulfs a small town, killing anyone unfortunate enough to be caught outside, a group of townspeople are trapped in the local grocery store. David Drayton (Jane) and his young son are among the small group of terrified citizens in the store who have banded together in a fight for survival. However as The Mist spreads across the town, David is left to question which is more frightening: the monsters lurking in the fog or his fellow townsfolk. Based upon the novella by Stephen King.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.83:1 DVD exhibits a somewhat pleasing image, with a solid sense of dimensionality and resolution is fairly impressive, although there are times when the image can look somewhat soft. Fleshtones generally have an overly pinkish hue. Black levels are somewhat elevated and the heavy noise is most unsettling in the darkest scenes, to a point that it becomes a distraction. Shadow delineation is maintained to a point, although details in the near-black areas can look crushed. The image often looks harsh and digitized. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #34 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I was always told to seek the superlative, and where home entertainment is concerned, WSR makes sure that my reach always exceeds my grasp. Fortunately, in this case, it's a good thing. I can count on WSR to always go beyond what every other magazine in the industry can provide. It has inspired me to explore the concepts, both technical and subjective, to the extent that I even feel smarter about home entertainment technology. Hardware and software are both dealt with in an informative and engaging way, so the value of the magazine surpasses its modest price. WSR has been a great inspiration for my wishes and dreams. I wish I could afford the ultra wares I see covered in the magazine. Nevertheless, I am wiser because I have gained a sense of judgment through reading WSR. (I must admit to having a bit of common sense, though, since I have been using Monster Cable products for over 10 years!) I hope WSR will continue to ignite the interest in its audience as it has up to now.
