New Trailer For Spike TV’s ‘The Mist’ Shows Us The Monsters

The first trailer for Spike TV’s new adaptation of “The Mist” by Stephen King was a slow and spooky affair. Whilst the first trailer went a long way in introducing both the setting and characters for the show. Destruction goes further and reveals the true horrors that lurk in “The Mist.” The second trailer, that has just been released called “Destruction” goes to show us the monsters that will be coming to our screens.

“A small town family is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout, eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world and, in some cases, each other. Family, friends and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down.”

“It’s coming”

The trailer begins with Nathalie Raven (Francis Conroy) in her garden as the birds start flying across the hills. The action speeds up from here as the audience is treated to a few flashes of the cast.  Then Mist rolling over the hills and before the bloodshed begins.

Although shorter than the first trailer, Spike TV have used this opportunity to confirm that “The Mist” will not be short of monsters. Accompanied by atmospheric music there are shots of eyeless corpses, a bloodied woman being pulled into the mist and a tease of a much larger monster. 


“Did you hear something?”

The action cuts to an upturned car, before more images of eyeless corpses, two hanging bodies and a lot of screaming. One stand out moment features someone with a moving bug tattoo on their back accompanied by Nathalie. 

It’s hard to garner much from the one minute trailer. However, it’s refreshing to see that monsters will be front and center. The creature feature aspects of the 2007 movie were one of its main strengths. When dealing with beasts from another dimension it obviously allows for a high level of creativity when making new monsters. It seems that bugs will be making an appearance. There was also a shot of a winged man – is he the potential main non-human villain? Furthermore, why is he with Nathalie?

“Few Things are more beautiful than destruction.”

The trailer also shows more locations from the show. The action seems to be taking place in a hospital, a grocery store and some external mist filled shots. While little is known about the motivations of the characters, it is pointed out by Eva Copeland (Alyssa Sutherland) that taking away food and water will lead people to do bad things. It seems safe to say that the horrors in The Mist won’t be all our cast has to deal with.

The Mist premieres on Thursday, June 22, on Spike TV. Will you be tuning in?
