Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The issues raised may make for some lively debate on the way home -- especially if it's foggy out. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Nov 22, 2007

Fresh: It's a horror movie of real conviction. It deserves to be a hit. – Paul Clinton (,, Jan 4, 2008

Fresh: The movie has plenty of payoff, especially in the exciting and nerve-wracking final hour. You can try guessing what will happen next, but you'll probably be wrong. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, Nov 27, 2007

Rotten: A combination monster/disaster movie, it explores issues as fundamentally elusive as the nature of man, the existence of God and the purpose of religion, and its conclusions aren't going to leave anybody feeling too good about whatever they believe. – Jack Mathews, New York Daily News, Jul 9, 2010

Best watched on a foggy day

Ranks up there with the finest of Stephen King’s works, this is a wonderful adaptation of his 1980 novella although the ending of this movie is somewhat astray from the book. Apart for the differences though I thought this was a wonderful movie both in the depth of the character portrayals (a classic trademark of Stephen King) as well as the scope of how the mind tries to find hope in a world that’s gone horribly wrong. A very eerie tale to say the least, best watched on a foggy day.

Good movie

Good movie very creepy. Didn't like the ending though. Left you hanging. Don't like iTunes doesn't offer the book.


I watched this movie at my friends house at around 3 in the morning. It was great. I'm going to buy it on iTunes. Its not to scary, a little gory, and a little disturbing. But if you have all those then you have a great horror movie. The ending was kinda weird and a little stupid. I wish that they would have all made it. But if I was in your shoes I would buy this movie as soon as possible.
