Frank Darabont on The Mist in Black and White

I can not wait to see The Mist in Black and White. I heard that it makes some of the so-so effects blend in better with the surroundings and their interactions with the live action stars of the film. Darabont gushes about the B&W version of The Mist in this clip, which I read is actually the introduction to the B&W version from the 2-Disc DVD of the film. A friend rented the regular edition on Tuesday and immediately fell in love with the film, especially the ending. It was the first time he had seen the film. This is the type of reaction to The Mist that I believe will be typical. Frank Darabont has another classic on his hands. It’s the slow burn type of classic that will worm its way into the top of most discerning horror lovers’ video collections and even the collections of those that love a good human drama. Quint over at AintItCool gives a brief but information review of the 2-Disc DVD for The Mist. So does Arrow.

    Heh,a crappy ending (I’m being a little harsh, lets say a not so great ending) in B&W is still a bad ending.

  • I loved the ending. It reminded me of Seven’s ending.

    In Seven it worked because the world it was painting was so bleak, IN the Mist you grew to like the characters and wanted them to live, or at least give them a somewhat nobler ending, the movie I was watching didn’t need to end on such a downer.

  • Maybe the film didn’t need to end on such a downer but it definitely makes the film more memorable.

  • I loved the ending as well. This movie is one of the darkest I’ve seen in a long while. It’s a smart movie, it shows the triumph and tragedies of humanity. Watching it in black & white might be too much for me as this movie was heavy on the synapses. We’ll see 😉

  • Couldn’t agree with you more. It’s a new classic in my opinion. I’m glad I frequent a video store that rents the 2-Disc edition of films.

    If colored film is bad because of Frank Darabont has just mutilated the final of original Stephen King’s book, then it’s make no sense to make black and white film. I downloaded this 7GBs film only to see the original final, I just wasted my traffic and electricity.
    Had anybody who “Love the film’s end” read the original story that Stephen King had wrote in his book?

    Yep. It’ll be much better if David Drayton died from moster and then captions was turnedd on. Otherwise he just killed his son and three other people, that could live, for nothing.
