The Mist by Stephen KingIts a hot, lazy day, perfect for a cookout, until you see those strange dark clouds. Suddenly a violent storm sweeps across the lake and ends as abruptly and unexpectedly as it had begun. Then comes the mist...creeping slowly, inexorably into town, where it settles and waits, trapping you in the supermarket with dozens of others, cut off from your families and the world. The mist is alive, seething with unearthly sounds and movements. What unleashed this terror? Was it the Arrowhead Project---the top secret government operation that everyone has noticed but no one quite understands? And what happens when the provisions have run out and youre forced to make your escape, edging blindly through the dim light?

The Mist is the descriptor for an abnormally thick, unnatural mist inhabited by various species of otherworldly creatures and predators, believed to be from another dimension. On the night after a freak thunderstorm , The Mist manifested from across the lake, spreading first across Bridgton, Maine , and then across an unknown amount of area, likely engulfing the planet. In the film, about three days after the mist engulfed Bridgton, Maine and the surrounding area, the creatures were exterminated by the military, and the mist dissipated for reasons unknown. In the novella, the mist is white, has an acrid smell, and warps acoustics, causing close things to sound far away and vice versa. It also darkens to grey at night.
