Movie synopsis
Director John Carpenter creates an old-fashioned campfire ghost story with THE FOG. Antonio Bay, a quaint, small seaside town is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its founding. That night a heavy, mysterious fog rolls through the town and people begin to die in savage ways. Rumors of a secret as old as the town begin to surface and the people of Antonio Bay realize they are victims of long dead sailors who have come to revenge their own murders at the hands of the town's founding fathers. The townspeople can only wait for the fog to roll in and pray that they are not the next to die...Carpenter creates a chilling film with THE FOG and gets fine performances out of Adrienne Barbeau, Hal Holbrook, and the fog itself, which creeps and crawls around as if it were alive. The film elicits its scares out of what is not seen rather than what is, and Carpenter exploits that style perfectly. Vague shapes move within the fog, while strange noises heard in the distance grow louder, and no one can say exactly what they are up against. THE FOG is one of Carpenter's earlier films and helped to establish his reputation as a master filmmaker.

Classic 1970's John Carpenter Horror Movie!

Review For: The Fog (DVD, 2002, Widescreen and Full Frame)

The Fog (1979) is set in Antonio Bay, a small seaside fishing town which is set to celebrate its 100th anniversary. As the anniversary date approaches townspeople start dying in gruesome ways. Secrets about the town are learned and revealed by the town's priest, played by Hal Holbrook. The town's founders apparently lured a clipper ship, filled with lepers, to their doom so that the town could recover their gold. Now, on the 100th anniversary of the shipwreck, a mysterious fog covers the town and with it comes the crew of the clipper ship to wreak their revenge upon Antonio Bay.

The movie is directed by John Carpenter while he was in his movie making prime. He creates what is basically an old-fashioned ghost story complete with an introduction by Academy Award Winner John Houseman. This was Houseman's only appearance in the movie but he was brilliant and set the mood of the movie right away. Leading the cast is Adrienne Barbeau, who plays the owner of a lighthouse and the owner of the local AM radio station. Barbeau gives a solid performance as she tries to save her son, warn her town about the Fog, all the while fighting rotting leper sailors. Hal Holbrook's performance is also quite good as the priest who learns that his relative was involved in the original sinister plot to kill the sailors. Rounding out the cast is Jamie Lee Curtis, who plays a loose hitchhiker who screams a lot, and Janet Leigh as the town's mayor.

The Fog was re-released in 2002 as a Special Edition and has some nice extras. It contains a new documentary with Carpenter and some of the original actors. It also contains a 1980 documentary, storyboards, some great outtakes, and more.

The Fog is classic John Carpenter. His movies during this time have a certain style and create an atmosphere that is just plain scary. Great sound effects and decent special effects add to this tension. Carpenter, unlike many other 70's directors, used darkness and vague shapes to add to the mood of the movie while keeping the gore to a minimum. Solid acting, good cast, scary plot, and great directing, make The Fog an excellent movie which every horror fan should own.

Scream Queen Alert - In My Fave Horror Movie!

Review For: The Fog (DVD, 2002, Widescreen and Full Frame)

First off, I love this movie. Have seen it a million times and when there is nothing on tv I pop in this dvd.
That having been said, this movie is not perfect. There are a couple of unanswered questions and some things that just don't make sense. But the story, acting and special effect make up for it!

Antonio Bay looks like the perfect little coastal town and everyone is excited about the upcoming centennial celebration. Except that the founding fathers were not the nicest people in the world - backstabbing jerks is more like it - and their victims came back for some justice.

Jamie Lee Curtis plays a hitchhiker at the wrong place & time. Tom Atkins gives Jamie Lee a ride and gets a rewarded for his kindness. Adrienne Barbeau is the lighthouse radio station owner/dj - she is awesome! Janet Leigh is one of the town officials and recent widow at the hands of the ghostly settlers and the great Hal Holbrook as Father Malone, who actually owns up to his ancestor's deeds.

This movie is all about mood. The location is amazing, when the music starts (Carpenter is a genius at using music to set the mood) and you see the fog engulfing the town - well that is just scary!

By no means is it the best horror movie to come out of that era (late 70's/early 80's), that would probably be the other Carpenter classic "Halloween". But this movie has its charm and is a must for horror fans!

P.S. Avoid at ALL costs the remake, now that is one of the worst movie remakes I've ever seen!

"Carpenter Horror Classic!"

John Carpenter's 1980 horror film stars Adrienne Barbeau, Hal
Holbrook, Jamie Lee Curtis, Janet Leigh and Tom Atkins. A town
is haunted by a mysterious fog inhabited by vengeful ghosts on
it's 100th anniversary. This is a great ghost story and one of
Carpenter's best films. This dvd not only has nice picture and
sound, but great extras. I recommend this horror classic.

I Still Have Goosebumps

Review For: The Fog (DVD, 2002, Widescreen and Full Frame)

And will for a long time to come..This movie scared the hell out of me when I first saw it as a little Girl and now as a grown woman I still have nightmares, unfortunately for me I love this great film it stars one of my fav male actors...Hal Holbrook..Mr Holbrook is fantastic as Father Malone..Film starts out scary with a eerie ghost story told by a old fisherman played by John Houseman another brilliant actor..in the beginning we find out about a ship known as the Elizabeth Dane that was led to its doom by a campfire..believing they were being led to shore by the friendly locals they instead crashed on the rocks and went down..according to legend the ghosts of the ill fated passengers return with the fog to exact their revenge..the film makers did a great job setting up this classic ghost story giving us viewers chills as the movie prgresses and we see the ghost story come to life viewers can't help but feel like they are actually present during the return of the fog and it's undead inhabitants..pop that popcorn, break out the soda, turn off the lights, turn up the volumn and enjoy..I give this film 5 out of 5 bars..

The Fog ws special edition

This movie has the outtakes, and the bloopers.
The making of the Fog, the story board.

This is the original film, by John Carpenter, written and directed by John Carpenter. Starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, John Houseman, and Janet Leigh.

This version, the original has the Fog, the schooner, the minister of the town on the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the town, comes across his great-grandfathers ledger, and the ledger, shows it was the founding fathers, who accepted their fate, for what they were doing, in founding and preotecting their town. Unbeknownest to them, their descendants 100 years later would be cursed.

This film like all original films, should rate higher... about 4.9. As the special effects of our time, were the best they could do. But, just as then even now, the outtakes and the bloopers...are the best part of any collection.

For film buffs, and people who like a classical scarey movie like The Fog and Halloween...this is up there and should be part of your collection.
