Errors in geography: The fire engine that drives past the grocery store says “Caddo Parish” on the door. Caddo Parish is not in Maine, where the movie takes place, but in Louisiana (Shreveport) where the movie was filmed.
Trivia: There are 22 entries in the trivia list – like these:
- This isn't William Sadler's first time with The Mist. He played David Drayton in an audio version of the story.
- To help save time on the tight schedule, the producers and director Frank Darabont hired the camera crew from "The Shield" (2002), to shoot the film. This camera crew is able to move fast, due to the hectic TV production schedule. There was an “A” and a “B” unit, which cut down on production time.
- In the opening shot of the film, David is painting in his room. The picture he's drawing is a design from Stephen King's Dark Tower series of the gunslinger Roland. Another design in the room is that of the poster of John Carpenter's The Thing (1982). John Carpenter also wrote and directed The Fog (1980), which shares obvious themes with the Mist.
