The Mist Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the The Mist script is here for all you fans of the Frank Darabont movie based on the Stephen King story. This puppy is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of the movie to get the dialogue. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and all that jazz, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. At least you'll have some The Mist quotes (or even a monologue or two) to annoy your coworkers with in the meantime, right?

And swing on back to Drew's Script-O-Rama afterwards -- because reading is good for your noodle. Better than Farmville, anyway.

The Mist Script

  
  
Whoa!

  
All the food's gonna go bad

  
Yeah, I drew up a list

  
I'll hit the store
before it gets all bought out

  
Fuck

  
- Can you save it?
- No. No way

  
No, I gotta start over from scratch

  
I'll call the studio
when the phones get back up,

  
see if they can extend my deadline

  
What choice do they have?

  
You kiddin'?

  
They could whip up some bad
Photoshop poster in an afternoon

  
They do it all the time
Two big heads

  
I should have brought it downstairs
with me last night

  
Just stupid, I guess

  
Well, sweetie,
you couldn't exactly know

  
that a tree was gonna come flying
through the window

  
Yeah, I'll hit the hardware store too,

  
get some plastic sheeting
and duct tape

  
and seal this up
before it gets dark, you know

  
Order in some new glass

  
Oh, you know what?
That was your...

  
that was your grandfather's tree,
the one he planted

  
- Ohh
- Used to play in that tree

  
It's just stuff, though

  
You know, we're safe
That's all that counts

  
Yeah

  
Mom, Dad, you gotta come see!

  
Hey, Billy, take it easy,
all right?

  
I really donít want you running
all over the place

  
But you gotta come look

  
The boathouse is all bashed!
Holy crap!

  
Billy

  
Sorry, Mom, but you just
gotta come! Come on!

  
Whoa!

  
Whoa

  
- Whoa
- Come on

  
Having spoken,
the Doomsayer departs

  
Come on!

  
How do you two always manage
to make me laugh?

  
- You have incredibly low standards
- Mm-hmm

  
Let's go, uh, see the damage

  
No

  
- Norton's tree
- Yeah

  
You mean the dead one
I've been asking him

  
to take down for three years
before it finally blew over?

  
That tree?

  
- Really got smooshed
- You ain't kiddin'

  
Look at that

  
What is it, Daddy?

  
Mist

  
- On the lake?
- We've had mist on the lake before

  
Coming off the mountain like that?

  
Two fronts meeting,

  
left over from the storm,
something like that

  
You sure?

  
Honey, I'm not the weatherman

  
Why don't you take Billy,
get him dressed

  
I'll take him to town with me

  
Okay Where you going?

  
I'm gonna go have a little chat
with our neighbour about his tree

  
Hon

  
Donít worry, I'm not gonna
punch him in the nose

  
You know what he's gonna say

  
He's gonna say, "Sue me,"
which, I don't know, maybe we should

  
Honey, one property dispute
with this guy

  
is enough to last me a lifetime

  
I'm gonna ask
for his insurance information

  
Okay

  
- That's all
- Yeah

  
Ohh!
Mother fucker!

  
Aw, shit!

  
Ohh, you mother fucker!

  
Cock sucker!

  
"Turn on

  
"Full choke

  
Pull five choke"

  
I guess youíve seen the...

  
boathouse

  
Yeah, and...?

  
Nothin'

  
Just think we should trade
insurance info, you know?

  
That's all

  
Oh, my insurance guy's
gonna love me

  
Oh

  
Shit The 
  
I was gonna bring
the station wagon, but

  
I don't know, the weather was
so beautiful coming out of New York,

  
I just...
You know, top down

  
I'm sorry, man I mean it

  
Sincerely

  
- That's nice of you to say
- No, that car was cherry

  
I hate to see it like that

  
Okay, I'll tell you what,

  
I'll find my insurance guy's number,
I'll bring it by later

  
- That okay?
- No problem

  
So, uh, David...

  
youíre not heading into town today
by any chance, are you?

  
Well, CMP's out in force

  
Maybe we'll get our power back

  
I know Some storm, huh?

  
One for the books, yeah

  
For a moment there last night,

  
I thought we were gonna take off
and head for Oz

  
WZON is off the air,

  
but Portland's still broadcasting

  
Daddy, look

  
Ah

  
guys from the base

  
- From up the mountain?
- Uh-huh

  
The Arrowhead Project?

  
Well, youíre a local

  
Any idea what they do up there?

  
Missile defence research

  
You know, I'm sure
youíve heard the stories

  
Oh, sure

  
The woman at the Laundromat
say that, uh,

  
they have a crashed flying saucer
up there with frozen alien bodies

  
Right Miss Edna Yeah

  
Miss Tabloid

  
"I Had Bigfoot's Baby"

  
"Satan's Face Appears
in Oil Well Fire"

  
You know, real reliable stuff

  
Well, they're in a hurry

  
Maybe their power's out too

  
Huh Still no signal

  
Why don't you go ahead?
I'm gonna try Steph on a pay phone

  
Can I go with Mr Norton, Daddy?

  
Sure, if you promise
to hold his hand, I guess

  
Yeah
- Yeah

  
Here's a list

  
- Sure
- Okay?

  
Meet you guys in there

  
Hold hands

  
I'm sorry I didn't know
it was your sister

  
That looks so freaky!

  
Hmm

  
- Sally, hey
- Hey, Mr Drayton on

  
You guys look jammed up

  
Yeah, well, half the staff
didn't show, plus the power's out

  
Oh, no What,
no backup generator?

  
Only to keep the food cold

  
Everything else,
welcome to the Dark Ages,

  
and bring your check book

  
Hey, Thursday night,
Steph and I want a date night

  
- Baby-sit?
- Heck, yeah I'm there

  
Oh, my God

  
The storm

  
Every body's stockin' up
Been like this since we opened

  
Crappy day, huh?

  
Eh, every one's a little
pissed off this morning

  
'Morning, Mrs Carmody

  
With lines like these,
I don't know how good it is,

  
but I guess we'll have to make do

  
- Keep your head down, pal
- I know it

  
Hey, champ

  
Your wife should be a doctor

  
She could make a fortune
in Manhattan with this handwriting

  
Yeah, it takes some getting used to

  
Why don't you get your stuff?
I'll meet you at the checkout

  
Okay, done

  
Hey, David,
thanks for helping me out today

  
Are you and Mr Norton
gonna be friends now, Daddy?

  
Oh, I don't know

  
"Friends" might be stretching it a little

  
I guess youíre not mad
at each other any more

  
I guess not

  
And that's a start, huh?

  
I'm sorry, ma'am,
the registers are down

  
The power outage got us too

  
Hopefully we'll have
power up pretty soon

  
- The bus leaves in 30 minutes
- We'll make it, okay?

  
You guys get the goodies
I'll wait in line

  
I need some change
on register five

  
Good morning, Ms Reppler

  
Hello, Ms Reppler

  
Well, hello to you, Billy Drayton on

  
How'd you hold up in the storm?

  
We had a tree come through
the picture window last night,

  
right in my studio

  
And the boathouse got all smooshed
Mr Norton's tree fell on it

  
Ouch

  
- Yeah
Sorry to hear that

  
How'd you guys make out?

  
Oh, we're fine
It's the listings I'm worried about

  
At the very least, I'll bet every one
of our "For Sale" signs fell over

  
We had damage
at the school, wouldn't you know?

  
That's what we get for not fixing
that roof when we should've,

  
but with funds being cut every year

  
You'd think educating children

  
would be more
of a priority in this country,

  
but youíd be wrong

  
Government's got better things
to spend our money on,

  
like corporate handouts
and building bombs

  
Daddy, is there a fire?
Is Mommy all right?

  
I'm sure she's fine
Donít worry, okay?

  
Mind what youíre doing, Sally

  
Oh, come on,
we got 10 days' leave

  
Check our papers

  
Look, I told you,
all leaves are cancelled

  
I don't know why

  
I gotta go check the pharmacy out

  
Three men meet me
back at the Jeep in five minutes

  
That's an order

  
Shit, man! Another half an hour,
and we'd have been gone

  
Oh, my God!

  
Something in the mist!

  
Something in the mist

  
took John Lee!

  
Dan, catch your breath

  
Something in the mist took John Lee

  
I could hear him screaming

  
Shut the doors! Shut the doors!
My God!

  
Daddy, I'm scared
Can we go home?

  
Don't go out there

  
There's something in the mist
It took John Lee

  
Screw that!
I'm gettin' in my car

  
Mister, no!

  
Please hold me

  
It's okay, it's okay

  
It's a pollution cloud
The mills down in Rumford

  
Some kind of chemical explosion
Has to be

  
What is it?

  
What's going on?

  
It's death

  
Aah!

  
Stay down!

  
Daddy!

  
You okay?

  
That was an earthquake

  
I tell you, the goddamn mills blew up!

  
Is every one okay?
Is any one hurt?

  
Every body just stay put, okay?
Just stay inside the store

  
I can't I can't stay here
I gotta get home to my kids

  
No
No, don't go out there

  
It's death out there
It's the end of days

  
Stop it, okay? Stop it

  
Please, every body,
every body just relax, okay?

  
He's right Let's just stay cool

  
Let's just try to figure out
what happened

  
I'm sorry, I... I canít just stay here
I have to get home to my kids

  
Ma'am, no, you can't go out there

  
Could be a poisonous gas cloud

  
Didn't you hear that man screaming?

  
I agree Let's stay here
until we figure it out

  
You're not listening!

  
I can't stay here

  
Wanda's looking after little Victor
She's only 
  
Sometimes she forgets
she's supposed to be watching him

  
I told them I'd only be gone
a few minutes

  
She's only 
  
For their sakes,

  
don't

  
Well, isn't anybody gonna help me?

  
Shh It's okay, pal

  
Won't somebody here
see a lady home?

  
You?

  
You?

  
It's okay, buddy
- You?

  
Ma'am, please,
I got my own boy to worry about

  
I hope you all rot in hell

  
Ma'am, please, wait until...

  
Okay,
let's start cleaning up, okay?

  
Get the spilled bottles,
broken glass, stuff like that

  
Aisle three has medical supplies

  
It's okay It's okay

  
All right, easy, champ
Come on

  
Come on

  
Come on
All right, hey, hey, hey

  
Can't keep crying like this, pal

  
Come on!

  
Come on,
youíre gonna hurt yourself

  
- Come on, are you all right?
- I want Mommy!

  
All right, I know you want Mommy

  
All right, just try to breathe

  
Just try to breathe, okay?

  
Just try to breathe, pal
That's okay

  
It's all right

  
I haven't seen him suck his thumb
like this since he was 2 years old

  
He's in shock

  
I think we all are

  
You haven't met

  
Amanda Dunfrey

  
She's new in town
as of this semester

  
Teaches third grade

  
and the specialed kids,
now that Mosher's retired

  
She's wonderful
The kids love her

  
And David's an artist

  
He does movie posters and such

  
And me

  
Lord, I'm babbling away
like some old biddy at a tea party!

  
My nerves are jangled, I guess

  
Boy settle down?

  
How is he?

  
Still hot

  
Why don't I get him some aspirin

  
- Aisle three
- Okay

  
Thanks

  
How's Dan?

  
His nose stopped bleedin'

  
He's calmer now
Somebody gave him a Valium

  
Can't believe the way he ran in here

  
Never seen him like that

  
I need something to cover my boy up
Got any blankets?

  
Furniture pads Loadin' dock

  
Gonna keep checkin' on people
If you need anything, just holler

  
You bet Sally, you mind?

  
Oh, I'd love to. I really should
help him clean up

  
- I'll take him
- Okay

  
Daddy, don't go

  
No, I'll be gone two seconds, Big Bill
Come on, I'm gonna get your blanket

  
Mrs Reppler's here,

  
and so is Mrs Turman

  
I'll be close by, okay?

  
- Okay
- Donít worry, I'm not far Okay?

  
Let me look at you

  
Hmm?

  
Wanna lie down?

  
Yeah

  
There you go

  
Soon as it blows away,
we can walk out of here safe andfree,

  
but we have to be smart about it

  
First thing we need to do
is keep our wits about us

  
and find out whatís happened

  
Well, how we gonna
do that, my man?

  
We've got no phone signal,
got no radio

  
I'm sure they're working
on those problems as we speak

  
It stands to reason
that restoring communications

  
would be their top priority

  
Jeez!

  
Oh, shit.

  
Ow!

  
Shit!

  
God damn it!

  
Ow! Ow!

  
Bitch!

  
It's obvious that weíre...

  
we're in some kind
of natural disaster here

  
Ain't nothin' obvious
about this sombitch from where I sit

  
There ain't nothin'
natural about it either

  
That's right

  
It's Judgment Day,
and it's come round at last

  
There is nothing more obvious
or natural than that

  
Ohh, fuck, now

  
You've done that to yourself,

  
by a life of sin and dissolution

  
Hey, whoa! David!

  
Hey, you guys hear that?

  
The generator?
We're just gonna check it out

  
No, no, I turned the generator off

  
It... it was backing up

  
- N-nobody else heard that sound?
- What sound?

  
I don't know, like a weird noise,

  
back there in the dark

  
Like something was, like,
pressing against the door

  
Did you hear it
before the lights went out, or after?

  
No, only after

  
After, but, look, I heard it, okay?

  
- Nobody's calling you a liar
- That's what it sounds like

  
No, no, no, no
Now, don't be that away, Mr Drayton on

  
You had a scare, no doubt

  
What say we all go check it out?

  
Here

  
Oooopf!

  
Man.

  
It's pretty rank in here

  
- Myron, go check it out
- All right

  
Go on, fire it up

  
All right!

  
Shut it off!

  
Holy crow, don't that stink!

  
Something's
got the exhaust vent

  
plugged up from the outside

  
You get it running long enough
to raise that door a little,

  
I'll go out and clear
whatever's blockin' it

  
No, no, you can't do that

  
Why not?
It's an electric door, right?

  
Well, yeah, but it may not be wise
to send him out there

  
Okay, I'll do it

  
No, look, it's not about
who goes out there

  
What, don't you think I can do it?

  
Hey! I want to go!
It was my idea

  
Well, wait, just stop, okay?

  
- J-Jim, right?
Mm-hmm

  
Myron? You guys are...

  
you, well, you don't seem
to understand,

  
or youíre try in' real hard not to

  
This is no ordinary mist, okay?

  
You open that door,
and something gets in here

  
Like what?

  
Well, like whatever
made that noise I heard

  
Are you guys being will fully dense?

  
Mr Drayton on, youíll pardon me,

  
but I'm not convinced
that you heard anything

  
I mean, we're not
hearing anything now, right?

  
Anybody?

  
See?

  
Now, I know, I know...
youíre a big shot artist

  
with connections in New York
and Hollywood and all like that,

  
but that don't make you better
than anybody else, not in my book

  
Hey, I didn't say that

  
Nor do I like being talked down to
or called stupid

  
by a guy who went to college,
just 'cause he's got the jitters

  
Fellas, it doesn't even matter
about the generator

  
The food'll keep without it

  
Kid, I'm gonna start the motor,
you raise the door,

  
and you yell out
when you got enough room

  
Yeah Okay, good

  
Wait

  
This is...

  
You guys gonna let
this kid risk his life

  
over a generator
that doesn't even matter?

  
Would you just
shut the fuck up already?

  
Norm!

  
Listen, Mr Drayton on,
I tell you what

  
The next time
you got somethin' to say,

  
you count your teeth,

  
because I'm sick to death
of your bullshit

  
All right?

  
Come on, Myron

  
This is crazy!
Leave 'em be

  
What am I, impugning
their manhood or something?

  
Listen, they've lost
their sense of proportion

  
What's going on here?

  
Out there in the market,
they were scared and confused

  
In here, there's a problem
they can solve,

  
so they're goddamn gonna solve it

  
Ready, kid?
- Let's rock

  
Norm, come on

  
Don't, man

  
It's a mistake

  
Pussy

  
Go up!

  
So

  
any boogeymen?

  
Pretty scary, ain't it, Norm?

  
Yeah, right

  
Norm

  
Norm!

  
What the fuck!

  
Ahh! Get it off! Get it off!

  
Get this friggin' thing off me!

  
Get it off! Help me!

  
Help me! Help me!

  
Aah! Aaahhh!

  
Jesus!

  
There's more! There's more!

  
Somebody help me

  
Somebody help me

  
What the fuck are you waitin' for?

  
Aaahhhh!

  
Hang on!

  
Aaahhhh!

  
Hold him still!
Hold him still!

  
Aaahhhh!

  
Oh, Jesus!

  
Aah!

  
Aah!

  
Shit! Oh, shit!

  
Oh, shit!

  
David, it's no good!

  
Aah!

  
Start the generator

  
Aah! Aaaggghhh!

  
Gaaahhhh!

  
Hey, I'm sorry

  
I mean, how the...

  
how the hell was I supposed
to know what you meant?

  
You said you heard something

  
How was I supposed to know
what you meant?

  
You should've said
what you meant better

  
I don't know, I thought maybe
it was a big bird or something

  
You got that kid killed!

  
Did you get a good look at it? Huh?

  
Did you get a good look
at what you did?

  
- Huh?
- David!

  
Don't hit him any more!
Doesn't solve anything!

  
You two assholes,
you got that kid killed!

  
And I got his fuckin' blood on me!

  
Okay, I'm done

  
Okay

  
What's next?

  
Kill the generator

  
That's the first thing

  
I'm sorry

  
Jesus Christ! Oh, God!

  
I'm... I'm sorry about the kid

  
Oh, God Oh, God Oh, God

  
We oughtta get out of here

  
Hey, we didn't twist his arm

  
Yeah, he's a fuckin' kid
He's supposed to be stupid

  
What's your excuse, huh?

  
Get outta here

  
Go back in the market
Stay by the door

  
Don't say anything, to anybody

  
Not yet

  
Not yet

  
Shit

  
David? Need a little light here

  
We have to tell 'em

  
The people in the market,
we have to stop 'em going outside

  
They won't believe us

  
They have to

  
I'm not sure I believe it
I was here.

  
W- what we saw was impossible

  
You know that, don't you?

  
I mean, what...

  
what do we say?

  
How do we convince them?

  
Ollie, what the hell were
those tentacles even attached to?

  
Oh, my God!
Are... are you all right?

  
Shh! Yeah, yeah, yeah,
it's not my blood I'm fine

  
W- what the hell happened?

  
I'll explain Give me a minute, okay?

  
I need to deal with something first

  
Please, I've got to...

  
I can't let Billy see me like this
He's scared enough

  
Just give me a minute
Keep him distracted Okay?

  
Okay

  
Hey, look,
I'm sorry about Norm

  
Me too

  
I mean, I ain't makin' excuses,
I'm just sayin'

  
Look, we need to tell people

  
No need to say how it went down
or anything like that,

  
but, uh, we're in the deep shit here

  
People need to know

  
What about the out-of-towners?

  
We got plenty of them in the store
Where do we even start?

  
Brent Norton?
That windbag?

  
He's an important attorney
in New York

  
That fellow could be
on the bench one day

  
Counts a lot with people of this town,
or... or any here

  
Yeah, that's right
- Do it quick, David

  
We've got to discuss how weíre gonna
stop that thing getting in here

  
W- wait What do you mean
getting in?

  
You shut the loading door

  
Yeah, but the entire front of the store
is plate glass

  
Jesus Christ

  
I was wondering
where youíd gotten to

  
Um, listen

  
that guy that came in here,
the one with the bloody nose

  
they're... they're...
We saw tentacles.

  
Ain't goin' very well, is it?

  
Unh-unh

  
- You what?
- Come here, youíve got...

  
Come here

  
Tell him

  
It's true

  
Tentacles Yeah

  
Um, gentlemen, um

  
I'm sorry, I...
I'm just not that stupid

  
I mean, what do you take me for?

  
I'm shocked

  
I'm shocked

  
I'm shocked It's pretty tasteless

  
using what's happening here
to try to make me look like an idiot

  
No, no, that's not
what's going on here

  
Look, come back
to the loading dock, okay?

  
I'll show you

  
Blood A chunk of tentacle
on... on the floor

  
No

  
No? What do you mean no?

  
No We've got real problems
to deal with here,

  
and this pathetic attempt at a joke

  
has gone far enough

  
Mr Norton, what reason
could we possibly have...?

  
Oh, please! Please!

  
This is pay back for the lawsuit
that I filed against him last year,

  
and you guys are backing him up

  
So winning wasn't enough, huh?

  
You wanted to humiliate me
some more,

  
show me a rubber snake
while these... these hicks

  
stand around laughing their asses off

  
- Watch who you callin' a hick!
- Myron! Myron!

  
- Hey, hey, fuck...!
Mr Norton

  
I swear, you have
got us all wrong

  
You're not too crazy about,
um, out-of-towners, are you?

  
I only spend my money,
and I pay my taxes here,

  
and I have seen you
talking behind my back

  
Y'all stick together

  
Well, don't I feel foolish?

  
I actually thought you were
being kind to me today,

  
and, well, thanks
for setting me straight

  
And I'm glad that tree fell
on your boathouse, you know that?

  
Glad Smashed it in
pretty good, didn't it? Fantastic

  
Now, all of y'all,
just stay out of my way

  
I know youíre scared, man
I'm scared too

  
- Lives are at stake around here
- David...

  
Okay, my son's life
Now, I need you.

  
Brent, please,
get your head out of your ass

  
All right, I'll drag you
back there if I have to

  
Come here

  
David, get your goddamn hands
off of me!

  
I'll sue your ass again!

  
Sue your ass, and this time
youíll go to jail!

  
This man assaulted me

  
He assaulted me
You were witness to it

  
This man's crazy
He's crazy

  
No

  
He isn't I wish he was, but he isn't

  
E- every one in the store,
you want to come back here?

  
There's something you need to hear
It concerns you all

  
Okay

  
W- w-wait I don't know
what you people think youíre doing

  
You're drinking?

  
For Christ's sake, Ollie

  
Do you want me to report you?
You want to lose your job?

  
Look, I'm gonna be taking down
names, starting with you

  
And I am prepared to file
a police report

  
- Fine, Bud, write down your names
- I will

  
But in the meantime,
shut the fuck up and listen

  
This is Mr David Drayton on

  
You need to hear what he's got to say
if youíre thinking about leaving

  
go hang out
with the ladies, all right?

  
Listen, don't be scared

  
It's okay

  
Okay

  
This is how it is

  
Now, I don't know
what this mist is

  
but there are things in it, and they're
dangerous, like Dan said

  
That's right

  
That's exactly right

  
What kind of things?

  
I never saw it
It happened too fast

  
I got knocked down

  
Five of us went back
in the loading dock

  
It was Jim, Myron, Ollie

  
me

  
Norm, the bagboy

  
- We opened the door
- Where's Norm?

  
So Norm could go out
and clear the vent for the generator

  
Something come out of the mist
and took him

  
Took him?

  
What do you mean?

  
Just killed him

  
I mean dragged him off

  
Now, guys, I don't know
what these things are

  
All we saw were tentacles

  
Tentacles?

  
Tentacles, he say

  
Tentacles from Planet X

  
It's a lie, you know

  
I mean, all these people do
is just lie each other up

  
It's a pile of shit

  
Of course it's a lie
Of course it's a lie

  
It's lunacy

  
From the look of it, the tentacles
are coming out of the beer cans

  
All right, uh, Bud,
don't take our word for it

  
Go look

  
Over there

  
What the hell is that?

  
It appears we may have a problem
of some magnitude here

  
Yeah, just keep 'em in line
Thanks

  
Let me

  
help these people

  
Let me...

  
let me preach your word

  
Let me shine your light,

  
'cause they're not all bad

  
They can't all be bad

  
Some can be saved, can't they?

  
Yes

  
Some can be brought

  
to heaven's holy gates
through your grace

  
I have to believe that,

  
though I know most will swim
in the lake of fire forever

  
If I can save a few

  
even one

  
then my life will have counted
for something

  
I will have pulled my weight

  
I will have earned my place
at your side

  
I will have served a purpose
here on this earth

  
Hello?

  
What?

  
I just need to use the bathroom

  
Oh

  
Okay Well, then, have at it

  
Ma'am

  
I... I just want you to know
that it's okay...

  
being scared, I mean...

  
and, well, if you need a friend...

  
you know, someone to talk to

  
I have a friend...

  
God up above
I talk to him every day

  
Don't you condescend to me

  
I'm sorry?

  
Not ever
You don't mock me

  
That's not what I was doing

  
Well, I'll tell you what...

  
the day I need a friend like you,

  
I'll just have my self a little squat
and shit one out

  
Maybe you do believe this

  
Maybe they're not lies,
they're delusions Whatever

  
Uh, the fact remains,
the evidence here is flimsy

  
- It's bordering on ludicrous
- Hey, this isn't a courtroom

  
You're not arguing a case,

  
and youíre doing nothing but damage,
talking the way you are

  
And you can throw as much cow's blood
around the loading dock as you want to

  
You still haven't fooled any one

  
Leave it alone, David

  
You can't convince
some people there's a fire

  
even when their hair is burning

  
Denial is a powerful thing

  
Well, keep talking

  
I'll have no part of it,
nor would any thinking person

  
Keep thinking, Mr Lawyer

  
There's no defence
against the will of God

  
There's no court of appeals in hell

  
There's no defence here, either

  
Not even with all the fertilizer
in the world,

  
not even if you stack it
as high as you can

  
It's still just bags of shit, isn't it?

  
Those of you who want to discuss
this thing rationally

  
to find a means of rescue
are welcome to join me

  
Those who want to stack dog food,

  
knock yourselves out

  
We got those windows taped up
as best we could

  
It should help

  
Yeah, think so?

  
Duct tape and dog food bags

  
That bad?

  
It's not good

  
There's none so blind
as those who will not see

  
Open your eyes

  
Let the scales fall away

  
This has all been written

  
Revelations, chapter 15:

  
"And the temple was filled with smoke

  
"from the glory of God

  
"and from his power,

  
"and no one could enter the temple

  
until the seven plagues
of the seven angels were completed"

  
Well, what are you saying?

  
What are you proposing?

  
That we all prepare

  
to meet our Maker

  
Oh, prepare to meet shit!

  
Lady, your tongue
must be hung in the middle

  
so that it can waggle at both ends

  
The end time has come,

  
not in flames, but in mist

  
Come here!

  
Easy! Back off!

  
How about if your ass prepares
to meet my size-10 work boot

  
How about that?

  
Hey, there's no call for that

  
Myron, please,
calm your friend down

  
I'm trying
to save your soul, you stupid man

  
- Doubters will doubt till the end
- It's okay

  
No, I'm sorry, I'm sorry

  
A monstrosity did pull
that poor boy away

  
Things in the mist...
do you doubt?

  
Do you?

  
Then go out

  
Go out and say,
"How do you do"

  
Shut up, lady

  
For God's sakes

  
Look, youíll have to stop now
You're scaring the children

  
They should be scared

  
Oh, yes, they should

  
Their beautiful, pure little minds

  
have been corrupted with lies

  
Lies

  
All this talk of a modern God,

  
or no God

  
There is one God

  
The God of the Israelites

  
And he is a stern and vengeful God,

  
and we have been mocking him
far too long,

  
and now he demands
retribution in blood

  
It is time to declare yourselves

  
Take sides...

  
the saved and the damned

  
Read the Good Book
It calls for expiation

  
- Blood!
- What?

  
Blood

  
Little Normie was first,

  
and now God calls the rest of us

  
The bill is due

  
It must be paid

  
As Abraham prepared
to sacrifice his only son

  
to prove his love for God, so...

  
Enough

  
- Ohh
- Another down payment

  
A few more pennies in the jar

  
Now, that's nice, see
I can't smack her, but it's okay for you

  
I- I'm sorry every body,

  
but this lady's perspective is
a little too Old Testament for my taste

  
They'll come for you

  
Maybe tonight,
when darkness comes

  
They'll come tonight,
and they'll take someone else

  
See if they don't

  
And when they do,

  
you will cry to God,

  
and you will beg Mother Carmody
to show you the way

  
That's fine

  
But until then,
if you don't shut up,

  
I'll wrap this tape around your mouth

  
You just try it, Ollie Weeks

  
And you, bitch

  
you hit me again

  
if you dare

  
You'll be on your knees to me
before this is through

  
Those of you who aren't local
should know

  
that Mrs Carmody
is known in town for being

  
unstable

  
No shit
What was your first clue?

  
Shh

  
Hi

  
What's up, little dude?

  
How come your friends
don't come get us?

  
They got tanks and stuff, right?

  
Why can't you just call 'em?

  
Phones donít work

  
But don't you got, like, a radio?

  
Hey, champ, what's going on?

  
I want their friends
to come rescue us

  
They would if they could, pal
They're stuck here just like us

  
But...

  
Shh Now, guys, we could use
a hand over there

  
Yeah, sure thing

  
Troop, off your asses

  
You all right?
- I don't like that scary lady

  
Oh, man, I don't either

  
But you know what?

  
Maybe she's scared too

  
You think?

  
You think Mommy's okay?

  
Billy

  
I'm sorry about the times
I was bad to her

  
Aw, hey

  
Mommy loves you very much

  
And I'll bet she's fine

  
And I promise you,

  
I'm gonna do everything I can
to get us back to her

  
- Okay?
- 'Kay

  
- Yeah?
- 'Kay

  
So, we can use the charcoal fluid
and the mops

  
to make torches

  
And we've got knives and stuff,
God knows

  
This maybe
a silly question, Bud, but

  
do you happen to have
a gun in the store?

  
Here? No Please

  
This... this isn't Los Angeles

  
I've got a shotgun in my truck

  
I could try for it if you want

  
Oh, God, I don't think that'd be
a good idea, Mr Cornell

  
Hold on

  
This gun, um

  
my husband's idea

  
He's away on business a lot

  
It's not even loaded

  
Ain't much use unloaded, ma'am

  
Um

  
You know how to use that?

  
Well, I shot it once on a pistol range

  
Hit the target a few times

  
So, we got a gun

  
Anybody know how to shoot it?

  
Well, I mean?

  
I do

  
You?

  
Ollie Please

  
Some target shooting

  
State champion in '
  
You're crazy if you go out there!
Let us pass!

  
Let us pass, please!

  
Let's just talk this thing through

  
We have, and we've
made our decision We're leaving

  
Hey, Mr Mackey's gonna barbecue
some chicken on the gas grill

  
- Why donít we just sit down and just...
- What, and let you keep on talking?

  
No, I've been in far too many
courtrooms to fall for that

  
You've already psyched out
half a dozen of my people already

  
Your people?

  
What kind of talk is that?
They're people, that's all

  
Now... now listen, every one

  
We are experiencing
some kind of disaster

  
I don't know whether
it's manmade or natural,

  
but I do know that
it's definitely not supernatural

  
or biblical,
and, no offense, Mrs Carmody,

  
but the only way
we're gonna help ourselves

  
is to seek rescue

  
We're going out

  
- Brent, look
- I'm not discussing this any further

  
I know I just want to ask a favor

  
Tie this around your waist

  
What for?

  
It'll let us know you got
at least 300 feet

  
I'll do it

  
Are you throwing in with them?

  
Me? No thanks

  
I think your man there
is a little too tightly wound

  
Gonna get somebody killed

  
But I'm thinkin' we could use
that shotgun of yours

  
I saw where you parked
when I pulled in

  
Red pickup, right?
Far entrance?

  
Son, you got brass balls

  
The shells are
in the glove compartment

  
Drive it back

  
All right

  
Just see they're paying out this line

  
Line's up, I'll cut her loose,

  
just so you understand

  
Yeah

  
You sure there's no way
I can talk you out of this?

  
David

  
there's nothing out there
Nothing in the mist

  
What if youíre wrong?

  
Then, I guess

  
the joke would be on me after all

  
We're gonna send back help

  
You'll die out there
All of you

  
Hey, crazy lady,
I believe in God too

  
I just don't think
he's the bloodthirsty asshole

  
you make him out to be

  
Well, you take that up with the devil
when you run into him

  
You just chat it over at your leisure

  
Well, let's strike out
toward the center of town

  
Keep it loose

  
Nice and easy

  
Keep going

  
Look

  
It's going

  
They're doing good

  
Aah! Aaahhhh!

  
Put it down!

  
Ohh! Pull!

  
Oh, my God!
I'm slippin'!

  
Pull! Back up! Back up!
Back up!

  
Get it off!

  
Oh, my God

  
Aw, sh...
Blood!

  
Awww, sh...!

  
Oh, my God!

  
Oh, my God!

  
Cut the rope!

  
Shut the door!

  
Now do you see?

  
Now do you believe?

  
About a half-hour of day light left

  
guys, how's it going
with these work lights?

  
We're gettin' 'em rigged up all right

  
Yeah, check it out

  
All right, all right
Save it, save it

  
These batteries ain't topped up

  
You turn the lights on,
it's gonna drain 'em quick

  
How quick?

  
- Five minutes, maybe ten
- Yeah, if that

  
Okay, emergencies only

  
If something gets in the store

  
Holy Jesus,
you scared the shit outta me

  
Oh, Sally, I'm sorry, really

  
I thought I'd come in and say hi
and see how you were holding up

  
- Hi
- Hi

  
Barely How about you?

  
I'm worried about my folks, I guess

  
You know, they live
up on Shorm Road

  
That's less than
five miles from here

  
How 'bout yours?

  
Well, they're out of town right now

  
They're at my aunt's in Boston, so

  
That's lucky
That means they're okay

  
I hope so

  
So

  
how soon you shipping out?

  
Uh, couple weeks

  
Scared about going over there?

  
Yeah

  
- Hey, Wayne?
- Hmm?

  
How come you never asked me out?

  
We flirted all through high school
I know you like me

  
So how come?

  
I'm stupid, I guess

  
Oh, shit! I'm sorry

  
Don't be I just...

  
I just didn't really want it
to happen like this, you know?

  
Some shitty locker room at work

  
Can we just stay in here
a while, then?

  
I mean, just... just you and me

  
The parking lot lamps
turned on

  
They're on a timer

  
Must be a different one
that's live

  
Maybe we could
tie into them somehow,

  
get some electricity in here

  
That'd mean walking out the door

  
Gaaaahhhh! God!

  
Oh, my God!
Oh, my God!

  
David! David!

  
You sure?

  
Look!

  
My God

  
Are those bugs?

  
Not like any I've ever seen

  
"They came out of the smoke,

  
"locusts upon the earth,

  
"and unto them was given power

  
even as the scorpions
of the earth have power"

  
Wow

  
Look at those stingers

  
Dear God

  
Holy shit!

  
Myron, get the ones in the back!

  
God, I think they're attracted to the light

  
Look out, look out, look out!

  
The light! Douse the light!

  
Look out! Look out!

  
Move! Move!

  
Light, light,
light, light, light!

  
"And there came a voice
from the temple

  
"saying to the seven angels,

  
"'Go your way s

  
and pour out the vials
of the wrath of God upon the earth"'

  
Ollie,
the glass is gonna give!

  
Shit!

  
Oh, my God,
they turned on all the lights!

  
Jim! Myron!
Fire!

  
Fire! Lighter!
Douse the lights!

  
Come on, come on!

  
Aah!

  
Whoa!

  
Aah!

  
Ugh!

  
Sally, look out!

  
No!

  
Ohh! Oohhhh!

  
Let me see, let me see
Let me see, sweetheart, let me see

  
No, youíre gonna be okay
You're gonna be okay

  
Let me see Let me see

  
You're fine You're gonna be okay
You're gonna be okay

  
Give me the lighter!
Put it on fire!

  
Come on!

  
Goddamn childproofing sons of bitches!

  
Aaahhhh!

  
Oh, shoot it! Shoot it!

  
Shoot it! Shoot it!

  
I can't! I'll smash the window!

  
God!

  
Oh, God! Ohh!

  
- Aaahhh!
- Go! Go!

  
Get down!

  
Shit!

  
- Ollie, you want these lights on or off?
- Leave 'em on

  
Aah! Aaahhhh!

  
Oh, God!

  
Ohh! Ohhh! Kill it!

  
Aaaaahhhhhh!

  
Bring torches!
Bring something to keep 'em out!

  
Come on

  
Sally!

  
Where are the goddamn extinguishers?

  
Get it! Get it! Get it!

  
Bring torches
We need torches at the window!

  
Plug that hole!

  
Dad!

  
Down! Down! Lay down!

  
Ohh

  
My life

  
my life for you,
your will be done

  
Daddy!

  
Bugs! Daddy!

  
- Nooooo! Billy!
- Daddy!

  
- Billy!
- Daddy!

  
Billy!

  
Dad!

  
Billy, come back here

  
- Dad!
- Billy, please!

  
Billy!

  
Come on, let's move it!

  
Somebody please
come over here and help

  
Here's some tape!

  
I'm right here
I'm right here Donít worry

  
Hurry up with the blankets!

  
It hurts so bad! Please!

  
It hurts so bad!

  
Block it up here

  
Get me some more bags!

  
Did we get 'em?
Did we get 'em all?

  
She was right

  
She said that
it would happen like this

  
She said that
they would come at night

  
She told us someone would die

  
Mommy

  
Ohh, shh, shh, shh
It's okay

  
It's okay, it was just a dream

  
It's just a bad dream

  
I want my mommy

  
I know

  
I know Of course you do

  
- Shh
I wanna go home

  
Just sleep

  
Everything'll be better in the morning

  
Think he likes you

  
Well, I hate that
I had to lie to him

  
You have kids?

  
No

  
I always wanted to, but

  
things haven't been working out

  
Right now I'm thinking
maybe that's for the best

  
I saw creatures
fly into the store tonight that...

  
they shouldn't exist

  
I keep thinking I'm gonna
wake up in a rubber room

  
You're not alone in that

  
We're all right there with you

  
This isn't gonna end, is it?

  
David

  
It's Joe He's getting worse

  
Joe

  
How you holdin' up, partner?

  
David is that you?

  
Yeah, pal, how you doin'?

  
It's bad He's bad

  
Didn't know anything
could hurt like this

  
If you guys can't help me

  
you... you gotta end it, okay?

  
Ollie's got that gun, right?

  
Right?
- No. No way

  
You can't fuck with me
on this, bro

  
Not with me like this

  
I'll do it

  
Just give me the gun

  
Hey, hey Shh

  
- We're not there yet, okay?
- Oh, please!

  
Joe, now, listen

  
Pal

  
we're gonna work something out

  
I just need you to hang in
a little longer, okay?

  
Can we do that?

  
Stay with him
I'll be back

  
Hattie, I need to go to the bathroom
Will you watch Billy?

  
Hattie

  
See anything?

  
The last of those bugs
went away about four

  
Dawn's coming

  
What's on your mind?

  
It's Joe

  
We don't get him
on some serious antibiotics,

  
he's gonna die of infection

  
Plus he needs
painkillers in the worst way

  
All... all... all we got here
is liquor and aspirin

  
You... you thinkin' about goin'
to that pharmacy next door?

  
Irene Reppler say
they've got Silvadene...

  
you know, the stuff
they use in burn wards

  
She knows where they keep it

  
Slow down

  
You can't actually be thinkin'
of doin' this

  
I'm also thinkin' beyond that

  
We have to get out of here

  
I mean permanently.

  
Why? We got plenty to eat!

  
What happens when one of those things
decides to break through this window?

  
I'm talkin' one of the big ones,
like the one that killed Norm

  
Yeah, and that flaming torch idea
didnít work so well, did it?

  
We almost burned
the goddamn store down

  
It's Hattie

  
Here?

  
All right,
gently, now Gently

  
One two three

  
I don't know
how long she was there like that,

  
lying there next to us

  
I thought she was sleeping

  
I got my 4-wheel drive

  
It's out there

  
Y- youíre talking about leaving?

  
Well, we

  
should hit the pharmacy first

  
We gotta bring back
supplies for the injured

  
I mean, if we don't,

  
Joe Eagleton's gonna die,
and we can't let that happen

  
But after that

  
look, my Land Cruiser
can hold eight people

  
I say we drive south
as far as the fuel takes us

  
and try to get clear of this mist

  
That's it?

  
That's the plan?

  
- That's what I got
- No, you can't mean it

  
Not after what happened
to Norton and his group

  
No, no, no Amanda, think.

  
Norton got over 200 feet
from this store

  
That's how much rope play ed out

  
I'm parked half that distance
from here

  
But who knows how far
this mist has spread?

  
It could be
the entire eastern seaboard

  
Yeah, it could be the whole world,
for all we know

  
Wouldn't make us any less dead,
now, would it?

  
We have one gun

  
- How many rounds?
We got ten left

  
Ten rounds Jesus

  
Okay, so ten

  
Want another reason
to get the hell out of here?

  
I'll give you the best one

  
Her

  
Mrs Carmody

  
She's our very own Jim Jones

  
I'd like to leave before people
start drinking the Kool-Aid

  
He's right

  
Flakier people get,
the better she's gonna look

  
No, I don't buy that
It's obvious she's nuts

  
Look, a few people maybe, but...

  
No, I count four
She's preachin' to 'em right now

  
By noon, she'll have four more

  
By tomorrow night,
when those things come back,

  
she'll have a congregation,

  
and then we can start worryin'
about who she's gonna sacrifice

  
to make it all better

  
Hmm?

  
You, Amanda?

  
My little boy?

  
He's right

  
You don't have much faith
in humanity, do you?

  
None whatsoever

  
I can't accept that

  
People are
basically good, decent

  
My God, David,
we're a civilized society

  
Sure, as long as
the machines are workin'

  
And you can dial 9-1-1,

  
but you take those things away,
you throw people in the dark,

  
you scare the shit out of them,

  
no more rules,

  
Youíll see how primitive they get

  
You scare people badly enough,

  
you can get 'em to do anything

  
They'll turn to whoever
promises a solution,

  
or whatever.

  
Ollie, please, back me up here

  
I wish I could

  
As a species,
we're fundamentally insane

  
Put more than two of us
in a room, we pick sides

  
and start dreaming up reasons
to kill one another

  
Why do you think we invented
politics and religion?

  
Oh, Jesus, that's just

  
wrong

  
Look, nobody has
to decide anything now, okay?

  
First things first...

  
the pharmacy

  
That'll be our test run

  
Okay?

  
It's all right, Big Bill

  
I'm gonna bring you back
some comic books

  
I donít want them

  
I want you to stay here

  
I won't be gone long

  
Just... just next door

  
Hey, youíll be safe

  
Daddy...

  
Daddy, there are things out there

  
Things...

  
Yeah There's a lot
less of 'em in the daytime

  
They'll wait

  
They'll wait in the mist
where you can't see 'em,

  
and then when you go
and can't get back in

  
they'll come and eat you up!

  
- Shh
- Daddy, don't go!

  
I'll be back

  
Big Bill

  
I promise

  
I'll be back, and then
I'm gonna take you home

  
All right?

  
Together, we're going home

  
If something happens,
anything at all,

  
you cut and run

  
You get your ass back in here,
for your boy's sake

  
If something happens to me,
I want you to take care of Billy

  
best as you can,
and long as you can

  
Land Cruiser's yours now

  
You... you get him out of here

  
You just keep drivin'

  
Where do you think youíre going,
Mr David Drayton on?

  
Are you so anxious
to make your boy an orphan?

  
My boy is no concern of yours

  
Listen up

  
We're going to the pharmacy

  
We're gonna bring back
some supplies

  
Also, there maybe people
trapped over there who need help

  
Listen, folks, listen!

  
We're not gonna take any chances

  
If there's any trouble,

  
we'll come straight back here
to the supermarket

  
And bring the fiends of hell
down on our heads, thank you

  
She's right

  
You'll make 'em notice us

  
You'll make 'em come

  
Why can't you just leave
well enough alone?

  
Lady, this what you call
'"well enough"?

  
You wanna stop us?

  
You better explain to Bobby here

  
why we're not bringin' painkillers
and medicine back for his brother

  
I'm goin', even if I have to go alone

  
You'll die out there, young man

  
You'll walk out that door
and be torn to shreds,

  
and then your hell-bound pride
will have them come get the rest of us

  
Yes, they'll come back for all of us,
just like this good lady said

  
Do you want that
to happen, people?

  
No!
No! No! No!

  
Well, it is this kind of hubris

  
that brought the wrath of God
in the first place

  
This kind of pride and defiance of...

  
Shut up, you miserable buzzard!

  
You old bitch!

  
Stoning people who piss you off
is perfectly okay

  
They do it in the Bible, don't they?

  
And I got lots of peas

  
David, please, if you want to go,
now's the time

  
How 'bout it, Army?

  
Any help from the armed forces?

  
I'll go

  
Jim Grondin

  
I had you in school, didn't I?

  
Yes, me and my sister Pauline

  
Pair of underachievers

  
After you, Jim

  
Yes, ma'am

  
Oh, shit.

  
That it?
That's every body?

  
Every body that's goin'

  
Yep
- Okay

  
Single file,
one by one, all right?

  
Let's get this thing over with

  
Let's go

  
After you
Yes

  
Stay together

  
You know what?

  
Mrs Carmody, youíre not helping

  
Shut the hell up!
- You shut up!

  
Save the batteries

  
Shit.

  
They left the doors propped open

  
Think something got in?

  
Let's just
get what we need,

  
get the hell outta here

  
Yeah Let's do that

  
The meds
are over at the end there,

  
in the cubicle

  
Will you not do that?

  
I'm sorry I'm sorry.

  
Oh, God.

  
Where's that Silvadene?

  
It's over behind David

  
In the fridge Check there

  
Silvadene Got it

Come on!

  
Open the door!

  
Where's Bobby?

  
Daddy!

  
Close up the doors!

  
Hurry up!

  
What happened?

  
They're dead!
They're all dead!

  
Expiation, because we have seen

  
the earth scourged
with whips and scorpions

  
We have seen the earth
vomit forth from her lips

  
obscenities and profanities

  
of such nightmare proportions

  
And for these evil,
lurking spirits,

  
and for these evil people

  
How long was I out?

  
Most of the day

  
You just came over here to lay down
and went to sleep

  
Just passed out, is more like it

  
What will stop this Great Whore?

  
Just shut down for a while

  
Sorry

  
How will it end?

  
Expiation!

  
Expiation!
Do you remember yesterday when

  
How's Joe?

  
Dead Joe died of his burns
while you were asleep

  
We were just too late

  
I told you this would come!

  
Oh, God,
I thought I was dreaming her voice

  
No dream

  
She's getting people whipped up

  
That poor girl is dead,

  
and that boy is burnt in the back room!

  
She's got 'em believing
she's a psychic,

  
she has a direct line with God

  
Why wouldn't they?
Woman never shuts up

  
Like those speeches
Castro used to make

  
Ollie say youíre thinking of leaving

  
I'm in

  
No Sorry

  
I mean, come on, you saw what
happened to Bobby Mike

  
I won't

  
do that again
I won't be responsible

  
You might want to reconsider that

  
What will... what will keep these evil,

  
these abominations at bay?

  
What will keep them away?

  
"The rock will not hide them
The dead tree gives no shelter"

  
What will end it?
Let me hear it

  
- Expiation!
- What are we talking about?

  
- Expiation!
- Say it again like you mean it!

  
Expiation!

  
Welcome to Sesame Street
Today's word is "expiation"

  
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

  
That boy hasn't been right
since the pharmacy

  
His mind's just snapped
Gone

  
Hasn't even been two day s

  
Not even two day s

  
I'm not spendin' the rest
of my life here, I'll tell you what

  
I can quietly gather up
some bags of groceries

  
and hide them up at one of
the check stands by the door

  
It was your idea
It's your vehicle

  
It'll be your call

  
I'd rather die out there trying
than in here waiting

  
Who will save them? No one

  
The rocks will not hide them

  
I want some idea
of what weíre up against

  
I want to know what this mist is

  
I want to talk to the soldiers

  
Soldiers? What's that gonna do?

  
You heard what that MP said
at the pharmacy

  
David, I'm not even sure
I knew he was talking

  
The situation was insane

  
He said he was sorry

  
Wasn't that the word
he used... "sorry"?

  
That's right
He said it was their fault, right?

  
What did he mean by that?

  
That's what weíre gonna find out

  
Irene, stay with Billy, please

  
Verse 17!

  
"poured out his vial into the air,

  
"and there came a great voice

  
"out of the temple of heaven
from the throne, saying,

  
"'It is done! It is done! '

  
"And there were voices
and lightning,

  
and thunders,
and a great earthquake"

  
Yes! Come to me!

  
What?

  
- Where's your friends?
- I ain't seen 'em

  
Not that big a store
It's kinda hard to lose

  
I ain't seen 'em, I said
I look like their keeper?

  
- What do you want from me?
- What do you know about this mist?

  
I don't know nothin'
I got nothin' to do with it

  
That's not what the MP
said in the pharmacy

  
before the spiders
came out of his skin

  
They're not in the store

  
The only place we haven't looked
is the loading dock

  
because you know

  
You saw the good face
of God tonight

  
Yes? Tell us

  
Here is an old man
who has seen!

  
Yes, he has seen!

  
Amen

  
And I want to say,

  
do I want to walk with you

  
into my Father's hands?

  
Morales

  
Donaldson

  
guys

  
It's the only place they can be

  
What?

  
Couldnít just disappear

  
Look, I told you,
okay, I don't know where they are...

  
I didn't think they'd do it

  
They said they would do it,
and I just...

  
I told them what
the MP said at the pharmacy,

  
and they swore they'd do it

  
I just... I didn't think they would

  
Jesus

  
It's the Arrowhead Project,
isn't it?

  
This mist, it's some kind of, what,
military fuckup?

  
What were you guys
messin' with up there, huh?

  
We got you now,
you sorry son of a bitch!

  
Get in there!

  
It was them!
It was them what done it to us!

  
It was them what brung down
the final wrath upon us!

  
Those two peckerwoods that
he's been with this whole time,

  
they hung themselves in the back
because they knew!

  
They knew it all along!

  
- He's crazy He doesn't know...
- Get on your knees!

  
Stay out of it, Drayton on!

  
They heard it too, didn't you?
All of ya!

  
All about the Arrowhead Project

  
and all that secret shit
up on the mountain

  
That's what brung it down on us

  
That's what brung down
the wrath of God!

  
Oh!

  
Private Jessup

  
It wasn't me.

  
I'm just...
I'm stationed up there

  
I'm not responsible...

  
- Bullshit!
- Hell, I'm a local!

  
Most of you people know me

  
You stop your chicken shit whining

  
or I will cut your puling tongue out

  
Now you tell us!

  
Tell us

  
Look, look Okay, okay

  
I heard stuff

  
Stuff?

  
Yes, we all heard stuff

  
Like how they, um,

  
how they thought
that there were other dimensions,

  
you know, other...
other worlds all around us,

  
and how they wanted
to try and make, um,

  
a window...

  
you know, so they could look through
and see what's on the other side

  
Well, maybe your window
turned out to be a door Didn't it?

  
Not mine! Those scientists'!

  
Oh, the scientists!
Yes, the scientists!

  
They must have ripped
a hole open by accident

  
This other world
came spilling through to ours

  
That's what Donaldson was saying
to me right before he killed himself

  
I didn't understand the half of it

  
It ain't my fault!

  
Oh

  
Ain't His Fault

  
No, no, no

  
Ain't nothin'

  
Ever anybody's fault

  
But he denies it

  
He points the finger,

  
this Judas in our midst

  
Judas!

  
David!

  
You! You!

  
Don't you know by now?

  
Don't you know the truth?

  
We are being punished

  
For what? For going
against the will of God!

  
For going against
his forbidden rules of old!

  
Walking on the moon!

  
Yes! Yes!

  
- Or... or splitting his atoms!
Amen!

  
Or... or... or stem cells

  
and abortions!

  
And destroying the secrets of life

  
that only God above has any right to!

  
Amen! Amen!

  
Yes, I know! It is true!

  
And now we are being punished

  
The judgment is being
brought down upon us

  
The fiends of hell,
you see they are let loose,

  
and star Wormwood blazes!

  
And it is his fault!

  
No! No! It is not my fault! No!

  
They did it! They spit
in the eye of the Almighty!

  
No!

  
Get over there!

  
No!

  
Judas!

  
Jim!

  
Kill him! String him up!

  
Stand up, you coward!

  
Unkh!

  
Jesus!

  
No!

  
Aaaahhhh!

  
Expiation!

  
- No!
Stab him!

  
- Aaahhhh!
- Expiation!

  
Feed him to the beast!

  
Expiation!

  
Let the abominations
smell his blood!

  
No, no! No!

  
Aaaaahhhhh!

  
- Jesus! Wait!
- No, David!

  
Aaahhhh!

  
Aaahhhh!

  
Aah! Aaahhh!

  
Aaahhhh!

  
Aaahhh! Aah!

  
Please

  
The beast will leave us alone tonight

  
Tomorrow

  
tomorrow, we'll just
have to wait and see

  
Daddy

  
Daddy

  
Sorry I left you, pal

  
I'll never leave you again

  
Promise?

  
But you have to give me
your best promise, okay?

Tell me

  
Promise you won't let
the monsters get me

Stealing food now?

  
Going out now, Mrs Carmody

  
Please stand aside

  
You can't go out
I won't allow it

  
Won't allow it?

  
It's against God's will

  
Don't you know that by now?

  
Haven't I proven my self
again and again and again?

  
Haven't I shown that I am his vessel?

  
What's the matter with you?

  
Don't you believe in God?

  
No one's interfered with you

  
All we're asking for
is the same privilege

  
You heard him

  
It is these people
who brought this upon us

  
They...

  
people who refused to bend
to the will of God,

  
and claim it privilege

  
Sinners in pride

  
Yes, haughty

  
Privileged!

  
They mock us They mock our...
our God, our faith,

  
our values, our very lifestyle

  
They mock our humility

  
and our piousness

  
They piss on us and laugh

  
It's from them

  
the blood of human sacrifice
must come

  
From them

  
- Come on
- the blood of expiation

  
Come on

  
You try it

Nobody can say we didn't

  
Nope
