Based on a story by Stephen King, Spike’s THE MIST centers around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world, and in some cases, each other. Family, friends and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down.
"The biggest challenge facing The Mist was finding a way to make the intangible scary, something that was nailed thanks in part to composers Giona Ostinelli.... From the unusual sounds used to convey the mist's otherworldly threat to the fragile compositions that represent each character's struggle to survive, Ostinelli's score played a pivotal role in bringing The Mist to life.... In a stroke of genius, Ostinelli took a different approach here to make this unusual "figure" stand out musically... Conventional use of instruments would not have fully conveyed the ethereal presence of the mist, so Ostinelli made some bold choices in his approach... He has crafted something very special here"
"The Mist is fascinating and addictive composition, a superb score on its own and one of the most affecting parts of the show in context. Once again Giona Ostinelli delivers an exceptional composition. The Mist is a complex and complete score that you shouldn’t miss under any circumstances"
International Film Music Critics Association
"Some of the most exciting and moving film music in a while"
"The score is absolutely perfect. Giona Ostinelli’s a killer composer, he’s done good stuff on several Mickey Keating films such as Darling and POD. His music here comes perfectly fitting, punctuating the creepiest and most emotional moments alike"
