'The Mist' to be released Nov. 21

The Weinstein Co./Dimension Films will release "The Mist" Nov. 21. Based on a Stephen King short story, the horror flick was shot inside StageWorks of Louisiana.

And judging by Louisiana Movies' very unscientific poll, you really want to see it.

Here's the official synopsis from TWC's website: "Three-time Oscar®-nominee Frank Darabont ('The Green Mile,' 'The Shawshank Redemption') reunites with horror-master Stephen King to write and direct this chilling adaptation of the author’s original short story. Following a violent thunderstorm, artist David Drayton and a small town community come under vicious attack from creatures prowling in a thick and unnatural mist. Local rumors point to an experiment called the ‘The Arrowhead Project’ conducted at a nearby top-secret military base, but questions as to the origins of the deadly vapor are secondary to the group’s overall chances for survival. Retreating to a local supermarket, Drayton and the survivors must face-off against each other before taking a united stand against an enemy they cannot even see!"

Have you ever heard the audio book version of this story?

Nope. But I hear it's pretty sweet, yes?

The anticipation for this movie has my inner-geek going crazy.

Thankfully, though, this year has been good for that inner-geek --- Grindhouse, The Simpsons, etc.!

Admit it. You have an outer geek, too. It won't hurt. Just confess.

What about "Gumbo and Geeko?" Not quite right, I know, but I refuse to be the person who took the gumbo out of Louisiana. That's social suicide.
