The Mist

Scritto da: il 29.04.09
Articolo scritto da . Mi chiamo Alessandro Puglisi, sono nato nel 1985 a Catania. Sono cresciuto a pane ed arte, nelle sue più varie espressioni. Inguaribile lettore e cinefilo, amo ciò che riesce a lasciarmi un segno.

mistUscito nelle sale italiane il 10 ottobre 2008, The Mist (2007) è tratto da un racconto (e non da un romanzo, com’è stato più volte indicato) di Stephen King, compreso nella raccolta Scheletri (Skeleton Crew, 1985). Il titolo italiano del racconto è La nebbia, per l’appunto e,  come racconta King stesso, il testo fu scritto nell’estate del ’76, non senza difficoltà, per un’antologia di inediti curata dal suo agente, Kirby McCauley.

La storia è piuttosto semplice e pienamente “kinghiana”: in una tranquilla cittadina arriva d’improvviso una “nebbia” densissima all’interno della quale si nascondono misteriose creature dalle intenzioni non certo edificanti. Un folto gruppo di persone rimangono intrappolate, assediate all’interno di un supermercato, da un pericolo che all’inizio non conoscono, ma che man mano si manifesterà in tutta la sua terrificante interezza.

Frank Darabont, che aveva già avuto a che fare con King all’epoca di Le ali della libertà (The Shawshank Redemption, 1994) e Il miglio verde (The Green Mile, 1999), adatta per lo schermo il testo dello scrittore americano con buona fedeltà. Se King parlava, per alcuni suoi racconti lunghi (e come non dargli ragione), di “elefantiasi letteraria”, altrettanto potremmo dire dell’adattamento di cui ci troviamo a parlare.

I 126 minuti di durata, infatti, appaiono decisamente eccessivi. Per quanto sia evidente lo sforzo registico, abbastanza presto la pellicola perde di mordente e anche i “tipi sociali”, delineati in maniera un po’ banale ma sufficientemente approfondita da King, si perdono nel marasma di un action-movie che in effetti si ferma a metà strada tra azione e riflessione sulle contraddizioni della società contemporanea.ù

Per i lettori affezionati del “re dell’horror”. Ma con qualche riserva.
