If you've read the story then you have some idea what to expect. I actually saw this in the theatre and aside from finding it wayyyy too long (seriously edit people) it was pretty decent. They pulled a titanic and threw in some unnecessary romance type garbage but that is mainly the last part of the film. For the most part we are dealing with a grouping of strangers in a grocery store who are trapped there because some sort of monster(s) are running wild in the fog (erm I like the fog better by the way). There is some religious nut woman turning people against each other and causing chaos, and well I don't want to give away more but the ending is less than satisfying yet somehow comical. If you can watch this at home with a ff button then I'd say watch but it's just too much I suppose.
