Idaho - The Mist. “50 States of Freaky!” Vol. 12

Se sure your all caught up with this series! —> “50 States of Freaky

The Mist. I freaking hate that movie, yet whenever it’s on I still watch it! What? We’re not talking about the movie? You mean the mist is real? Welp, we’re fucked, but only if you live in/visit Idaho! That’s right, the paranormal mist from Stephen King’s “The Mist” might actually be real, and just outside of Emmett, Idaho in a swimming hole called Sawyer’s Pond. So in 2012, a couple drove up to the pond and upon arriving they felt something wasn’t right. They walked over to the water’s edge and suddenly became engulfed in a strange mist so dense, they couldn’t see anything. Then, the boyfriend felt something squeeze his shoulder and the two ran back to the car. He says that he saw a human-like figure moving in the mist before they left. Since then, several people have drowned at the pond.

This sounds more like “The Fog”, but that doesn’t matter. What does matter is that there’s a freaky ghost mist thing in Idaho!…or not. I say that because I’m not sure if I believe this tale to be true. When I searched for more info about this “mist sighting” nothing came up except for ghost story websites. The only thing that I believe to be true of this whole tale is that people have drowned in the pond, because a news article did come up of a possible drunken man drowning in the pond. So, I think the story of this ‘mystery mist’ was just made up to scare people in nothing more than a “creepy pasta”. But, let’s ask the burning question. Which is better, John Carpenter’s “The Fog” or Stephen King’s “The Mist”?
