Based on The Mist from Skeleton Crew
David Drayton (Thomas Jane), his son, Billy (Nathan Gamble), and their neighbor, Brent Norton (Andre Braugher) head to the local grocery store to replenish supplies following a freak storm. Once there, they and other local citizens are trapped by a strange mist that has enveloped the town and in which strange creatures are lurking. As the mist takes its toll on the nerves of those trapped in the store, a religious zealot, Mrs. Carmody (Marcia Gay Harden) begins to play on their fears to convince them that this is God’s vengeance for their sins and that a sacrifice must be made and two groups—those for and those against—are aligned. When it is realized that staying in the store may prove fatal, a small group including the Draytons, store employee Ollie Weeks (Toby Jones), Amanda Dumfries (Laurie Holden), Irene Reppler (Frances Sternhagen), and Dan Miller (Jeffrey DeMunn) attempt to make their escape. They find that what’s “out there” may be worse than what they left behind.
