What you can't see won't hurt you...it'll kill you!
When the fog rolls in… the terror begins! This moody and "crisply chilling" (Newsweek) horror classic from master of terror John Carpenter (The Thing) and co-writer Debra Hill (Escape from L.A.) stars Adrienne Barbeau (Swamp Thing), Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween), Oscar® winner John Houseman (Rollerball) and Oscar® nominee Janet Leigh (Psycho). Get lost in the fog… "it will frighten the daylights" (The Hollywood Reporter) out of you! The sleepy seaside village of Antonio Bay is about to learn the true meaning of the word "vengeance." For this seemingly perfect town masks a guilty secret… a past steeped in greed and murder. Exactly 100 years ago, a ship was horribly wrecked under mysterious circumstances in a thick, eerie fog. Now, shrouded in darkness, the long dead mariners have returned from their water grave to exact a bloody revenge. Can this waking nightmare be stopped, or will the fog keep rolling in… to kill and kill again?

"A tale of nocturnal terror!  Film Journal

Editor's Note
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.
