Arrowhead Project redux

Flea-readers who have not read Stephen King's classic novella The Mist or heard its astonishing ZBS Foundation radio adaption - in kunstkopf binaural sound! - and have any plans whatsoever to do so are best advised not to watch this trailer for the forthcoming film. I understand the artards need to be reassured they will enjoy a movie before they shell out to see it but why must the rest of us be made to suffer for it? These are the same cretins who read the last page of a romance novel; they need to know everything turns out for the best for for committing to the story.

Shoot them. Shoot the people who enable them.

I am a fan of King's short stories especially his Lovercraftian themed ones.. this is my fave of his short works. I am afraid to watch the trailer.

I have myself been in a groceteria when a big fog rolled in against the windows and I as well thought "should I leave or stay" because of this story.

It is one of the most terrifying things I have ever read. Having read it, I have never quite left it.

Illustrates one of the reasons we always travel armed... not for 'horrors from beyond all understanding,' but rather to make sure our fellow good neighbors don't toss us to said horrors first.

Interesting.. I thought I was the only one who always packed a swiss army knife for reasons other than being able to jump in and help someone with a toothpick or tweezers when needed.. ;)
