The Mist was one of the best books to movie adaptations made in the 2000’s. It had it all — monsters, drama, blood, you name it-this movie has it. It is a movie made from a Stephen King short story. You may be wondering what conspiracy this classic monster movie can possibly have, well let me tell you, this movie gets deep.
So, The Mist is about a group of people who are hiding out in a grocery store because a scary mist of monsters has enveloped the entire town. They are hiding in the grocery store for safety as it is no longer safe to be outside at all. The storyline ebbs and flows with various deaths, drama, and gore.
The movie comes to a conclusion once the survivors of the mist get the courage to leave the store, getting into a car, and trying to drive to safety. They don’t make it far before a monster descends on them and the main character, a father, and his son are stuck in the car facing near death. The father has a gun with bullets and decides to put his child out of his misery and shoots him. Immediately after shooting him, the father is rescued by the military and the mist disappears.
The conspiracy surrounding this movie is that since the mist dissipated right after the murder of his son, that the only way to have saved everyone was to kill the son. Supposedly the son had to be sacrificed in order to save everyone. It makes sense because the main character killed a few other characters before his child and once his child was murdered, everything was safe again.
Now, do I believe in this theory? Yes. It makes no sense that right after killing the son, everything is safe again. It could be just a freak and hellish coincidence, but I highly doubt it. Tune in next time for more crazy horror conspiracies!
