The mist movie storyline:

The morning after the small town of Bridgton, Maine is struck by a violent thunderstorm, commercial artist David Dayton, his son, Billy, and his wife,Stephanie, witness a mysterious mist moving across the lake towards their lake shore home.

Concerned with cleaning up the aftermath of the storm, David, Billy and their neighbor, Brent Norton, head into town, to the local grocery store, where the patrons’ attention is drawn by an unusual amount of police and military activity.

Soon after the mist develops, something plugs the store generator’s exhaust vent. When a young bag boy named Norm steps outside to fix the problem, he is pulled into the mist by a swarm of tentacles. David and Ollie Weeks, the store’s assistant manager, witness Norm’s death and try to convince the remaining survivors of the danger lurking outside. Norton and a small group of others refuse to believe, accusing David of lying. They venture out into the mist to seek help, where they are killed by a huge, unseen creature. This, along with a deadly incursion into the store by a pterosaur-like creature and a disastrous expedition to the pharmacy next door, lead to paranoia and panic consuming the remaining survivors. This spiraling breakdown leads to the rise to power of a religious zealot named Mrs. Carmody, who convinces most of the remaining survivors that these events fulfill the biblical prophecy of the end time, and that a human sacrifice must be made to save them from God’s wrath.

David and Ollie attempt to lead their remaining allies in a covert exit from the market, but are stopped by Mrs. Carmody, who orders her followers to kill her chosen victims: Billy and Amanda. However, Ollie, using a revolver found in Amanda’s purse, kills Mrs. Carmody, causing her congregation to break up. En route to David’s car, Ollie is bisected by the claw of a very large creature similar to a giant lobster or crab. David, Billy, Amanda, and elderly, yet tough, school teacher Hilda Repeller reach the car and leave Bridgton, driving south for hours through a mist-shrouded, monster-filled New England. After finding refuge for the night, David listens to a radio and, through the overwhelming static, possibly hears a single word broadcast: “Hartford“. With that one shred of hope, he prepares to drive on into an uncertain future.
