If you are a horror junkie, one thing is certain when it comes to horror movies:
The final 1/3 of the movie (or show) is usually when things start to get interesting.
This is true for most of my favorite horror movies, like Poltergeist and Phantasm. Scream is another great example of this, along with The Nightmare on Elm Street. Stranger Things is a TV show, but the last 3 episodes or so also follow this pattern.
This is even true for some of the not as good ones as well. In fact, with movies like ‘Salem’s Lot, the last third or so of the act is what saves it and makes it watchable.
The show The Mist is also following the same pattern. It has started off a bit (okay, a lot) slow, but has picked up some steam.
In other words, shit gets real.
The characters are forced to continue to make choices, due to The Mist and their predicament of being trapped by The Mist.
Some of these choices do not always make sense, but we are starting to finally see some action.
