Spike‘s The Mist (2017) TV show trailer and TV show poster star Alyssa Sutherland, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Bill Carr, Gus Birney, and Luke Cosgrove. The Mist‘s “THE MIST centers around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world and, in some cases, each other. Family, friends and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down.”

Like the Under the Dome TV series, the first look at The Mist TV series is far better than I was expecting. I do not like the change in the series regarding what the mist represented. That change, or a major change of any kind, was inevitable because the characters on the series couldn’t be fighting and killing (spoilers are coming) beings from another dimension at all times. Even in the brilliant film adaptation of the Stephen King novella, human nature killed almost as many people as the other dimensional beings.

The Mist film used human psychology, fanaticism, and mob mentality as highly-effective narrative tools. Encouragingly, some of those elements will be present in the television adaptation. The Mist TV show creator Christian Torpe had this to say about that aspect of the upcoming TV series:

“We establish different little pressure cookers under the influence of whoever the leader would be in those locations. Each of them come up with different theories or beliefs about what’s going on. Eventually, the story lines will dovetail and turn into conflicts.”

The Mist also stars Nabeel El Khafif, Greg Hovanessian, Romaine Waite, David Wm. Marsh, Laurie Hanley, Alexandra Ordolis, and Lola Flanery.
