Movie Recommendation for a Stormy Night

In between Barry pelting out the door in answer to pages every little while this weekend, we watched "The Mist" together. I'd read Stephen King's novella from which it was made many times. It was fun to see a movie made from a King story where they actually followed the plot, for the most part, including some of the dialogue. They changed the ending completely, but for once I agree with them. I think "The Mist" is one of Stephen King's weaker stories simply because of the no-ending ending. This has a real shocker of a conclusion and I like it.

Also it takes place following a terrible storm, so it was perfect to watch during a storm.
