I could speak much longer on the subject of this film, but it's better to keep it short and sweet. Therefore here are a few other (short) thoughts and tidbits regarding this film.
The opening includes a slight reference to the Dark Tower Series of books by Stephen King.
Darabont is responsible for no less than four Stephen King story adaptations. The first being a student film he did of King's Woman in the Room that is considered a "dollar baby" or "Dollar Deal". If you're a filmmaker, you would do well to look into The Dollar Deal HERE.
Darabont is helming/producing the series and pilot episode of AMC's The Walking Dead. Based on the comic by Robert Kirkman.
Eric Powell creator of The Goon comic was on set to watch filming and helped shake set pieces during some of the earthquake sequences.
More horror to come so keep on the look out and please link back to us and tell your friends.
