But after the doorstops, the next on my list of King faves tended to be, oddly enough, his shorter works. His short story collections. His novellas. Bite-sized bits of horrifying goodness that I gobbled up one by one by one.
Enter The Mist. Short enough to read in one sitting. Long enough to provide for an incredibly satisfying literary meal.
So I should be excited for the forthcoming miniseries coming to Spike TV on June 22. And I must admit: when I first saw the announcement of the series, I did experience a small frisson of excitement.
But I do have my reservations. Plans for the show include a whole new cast of characters, and a fair amount of diversion from the source material. And didn’t we already have a decent adaptation of The Mist back in 2007?
I don’t know… I always get nervous when someone effs with something I love. But I’ll let you be the judge. Check out the first trailer now:
