Did you know that The Mist, a movie based on a novel by Stephen King, was written for the screen and directed by Frank Darabont, the same man who developed the TV show The Walking Dead? And that many people from The Mist are also in The Walking Dead (NOT Thomas Jane and Marcia Gay Harding though)? Watching The Mist now is like watching a very weird prequel to The Walking Dead. All of your old friends are there! Blond woman! Sophie’s mom! Guy with hat! That group of people just have the WORST luck!! Always plagued by something. Mist or zombies.
