The Mist is a 1980 novella published by Stephen King in his short story collection, Skeleton Crew.
The story centers around a group of people who are trapped in a local grocery store by a thick mist which conceals otherworldly monsters.
After a failed attempt to return home to get Steff, David and the group drive south to try and get clear of the mist.
They encounter the Behemoth, which slowly lumbers past the group, leaving SUV sized footprints in the concrete and being so tall that it is impossible to see past it's legs.
