The Weinstein Brothers are about to go on a roll with horror, starting in a couple of weeks. On November 21, The Mist will hit theaters and, having just seen it at a screening, let me just say it’s not only scary, it deals with politics and religion and the human experience so well that the surprises you’ll find toward the end pack an extra powerful punch that’ll have you reeling.

stars Morjane Alaoui and Mylene Jampanoi in the story a girl who
emerges from a yearlong abduction and forms a bond with another girl
while in recovery. Ireland-set Mills sees a village troubled by a 15-year-old girl who is believed to have supernatural powers. Dante is set in a space prison where a prisoner with monstrous powers is infecting other inmates."
