Stephen King’s The Mist has already been immortalized on the big screen by legendary director, Frank Darabont. But now, The Mist is coming to TV this summer and an official trailer has been released that is very exciting to say the least.
“People are strange!”
For those of you who have not seen the movie, The Mist is about a fog cloud, or a mist, that emerges over a New England town and engulfs everything. But what it brings with it something that Mother Nature had never intended for the plane of existence that human beings live on.
There are many things I can say about Stephen King’s The Mist, but I really want to tread lightly here so I do not reveal any potential spoilers for those who would like to see the story unfold in ten episodes on Spike TV this summer on June 22.

But what I can say about The Mist is that when Frank Darabont translated it for the big screen, he stayed true to nearly all elements of the original Stephen King story, but still made it his own and changed several key factors that made the film a cinematic masterpiece that shocked audiences to the core.
For those who have already read Stephen King’s The Mist or seen the Frank Darabont film, then it would be safe to assume that not all aspects of the story and the film will make it into the TV series. Instead, Stephen King fans should expect Spike TV to shake up the story quite a bit and give you a more shocking experience.
“Vintage horror fiction!”
I should also say that Stephen King’s The Mist and the Frank Darabont translation of the story is quite present in the trailer below, but still quite different. Fans of Stephen King know that nearly all of his stories are quite complex and take place in Maine, which is why they go over so well when they are adapted for the big and small screens.
