Once there, they become trapped by a strange mist that has enveloped the town. Violent forces concealed in the mist are starting to emerge. And there is another shocking threat from within - one group of survivors, led by a religious zealot, is calling for a sacrifice.

Reviews for The Mist

King's imagination is vast * GUARDIAN * As classic as King's novels are, his shorter fiction is just as gripping * USA TODAY * Popular fiction's most prolific terror-monger's . . . genius remains in the conjuring of evil out of ephemera, of a malevolent universe lurking behind the Walmart shopping trolley banality of everyday, small-town America * THE TIMES *
