There's an American movie, I believe it's probably 5-12 years old, that is suspense with horror elements. The thing I remember most about it is the end, when it is revealed that there are huge bizarre looking creatures of gigantic proportions that have arrived accidentally on our planet from another dimension through some sort of portal. These creatures are stomping around causing all kinds of havoc, crushing cars, killing people, etc. I think that it's based on a Stephen King novel, but I don't know for sure. What's the name of this movie?

The creatures are kind of like dinosaurs, in the shape and size, land-dwelling, but their features unlike anything of this earth.

  • Are there giant robots fighting them? Aside from the age and possible Stephen King link, this sounds like Pacific Rim.

    @phantom42 If there aren't giant robots, then why bother?

I believe you are remembering The Mist.

It came out in 2007.

  • Maybe this is it. I didn't think it was The Mist at first, but coming across the following picture jogged my memory: aliens.wikia.com/wiki/Creatures_of_the_Mist?file=Behemoth.png Commented Jan 8, 2015 at 21:54
  • yeah, those huge ones are only shown at the end of the movie, that is what made me think of it. They are hinted at before that but not shown.

    I'm wondering though ... isn't at the end of the movie where the one guy kills everybody in the vehicle and doesn't have enough bullets left in the gun to kill himself, thinking the creatures were going to get him. This is just in time the mist to clear and to find the troops come marching up the road. They would have been saved if they'd only given it a few more minutes time. This would be very memorable as it is a very gut wrenching twist to the movie. Just saying. Commented Jan 9, 2015 at 0:09

    @Justin C - No, the original short story doesn't end that way, there's no group suicide but also no eradication of the mist by the military, it's just left open-ended with them driving away from the supermarket through a now-monster-filled world, and hearing the world "Hartford" on the radio, giving them some slight hope of a refuge for survivors.

    Not just if they waited a few more minutes. One of the people saved by the military at the end of the movie was... dun dun dunnnn, the woman who left to save her kids at the very start of the movie.
