A heavy mist comes rolling over a New England town, trapping several dozen people inside the local supermarket, and to their horror they realize the swirling whiteness conceals a breed of huge, bloodthirsty insects. Frank Darabont, directing his third Stephen King adaptation (after The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile), takes full advantage of the mist's visual ellipses to create almost unbearable suspense, and the same aesthetic carries over into the narrative, which employs an unusual number of fades. Darabont doesn't match the sly cultural commentary of The Host, a recent Korean import that also revamped the giant-monster genre, but his grocery-store survival drama, dominated by Marcia Gay Harden as a shrill fundamentalist, serves as a crude but effective allegory for post-9/11 America. With Thomas Jane, Andre Braugher, and Toby Jones. R, 125 min.
