      My first excursion into horror ...

      It was a stormy evening (quite literally) on Lake Huron in a small pop-up camper, relentlessly shaken by a vigorous autumnal wind, and I was a boy yet to the hit the "double digits". Being unable to play outside due to the torrential downpour that evening, my father had decided it would instead be a good idea to rent a movie and "stay in" for the evening. As such, we went out and drove a good 20 minutes to the closest strain of civilization - a gas station (yes, in those days you could rent movies just about anywhere, including gas stations) - to look at their tapes. After mulling over the somewhat slim selection for a few minutes, my father had decided to go with John Carpenter's The Fog for our cinematic venture that night and, as they say, the rest is history. Despite the fact that I am in my 30s now, I still actutely remember watching that movie on our tiny and portable TV, engrossed and horrified all at once while the film's length went on. By the end of it I was so awe-struck and terrified that I laid in my bed for at least a couple hours before falling asleep, imagining that every large gust of wind that shook our camper may very well have been Blake and his spectral caravan, and ardently hoping that wasn't the case. Many years have passed since that fateful night but The Fog's impact still remains with me to this day, for it was that very experience that planted the seed within my bosom that has since grown into a well-nourished and ever-blossoming love affair with horror. I guess it's safe to say there was something in the fog after all, no?

      This is an excellent release. "The Fog" has had many home video releases but "Scream Factory" knows what fans want in a release and they deliver. What is nice bout the film is that they include some of best extras that previous DVD releases had. They also included new extras including new interviews and a "Horror's Hollowed Ground" with Sean Clark. That man always does a great job. To me if he is featured on any home video release the .then its well worth buying. THE MGM RELEASE however has the audio commentary from John Carpenter and the late Debra Hill which was not carried over to the Scream Factory Edition. This was a double dip for me, cause I am a steel book collector, so I had to pick this up day one.

      Carpenter's followup to Halloween (which includes Jamie Lee Curtis & Nancy Loomis in its fine cast) is a nice, spooky ghost story involving the various residents of a small coastal town who realize the supernatural is in their midst on the eve of their town's centennial. There are several different character threads simultaneously running throughout the film which nicely come together at the end (Adrienne Barbeau, sexy as ever, plays a pivotal role in bringing things together). Carpenter's music here is as memorable as it was in Halloween. Small complaint: there are plot holes which come up if you look at the story too closely (do these ghosts want blood or money?). Fortunately, the film is still enjoyable and spooky enough to let these things pass.

      A spookiness only John Carpenter provides

      The Fog is a perfect Halloween movie. It drips with spooky atmosphere, with a beach side town at night, creepy campfire stories told by a grizzled fishermen, and LOTS of fog. The movie is suitably eerie in its direction and score, with John Carpenter now a seasoned master of his craft. The characters (except the lead) are unfortunately bland and or unlikable. But they're not what you watch the movie for. You watch it for red eyed ghost fishermen silhouettes coming out of the fog to murder people with fishhooks. And that is exactly what you get. This blu-ray release from Scream Factory is also loaded with great bonus features for fans of the film, and even a reversible cover with the original 80's poster. Highly recommended.

      the fog is one of the best ghost story i have ever seen bc it is scary and it has a good story and it is one of john carpenters best films beside his other classic films like the thing escape from new york prince of darkness and they live the fog is well worth seeing and owning and the blu-ray is worth owning bc you get extras on the disk and it looks and sounds amazing too so if you want a real good ghost story than check it out and don't waste your time on the fog remake bc it is the one of the worst remakes of all time but original one is a classic so check it out if you want to see a good horror movie

      This is my favorite film by director John Carpenter. This is just a good creepy ghost story with plenty of scares. Well photographed by Dean Cundey accompanied by a great score by Carpenter and a solid cast headed by Adrienne Barbeau, Jamie Lee Curtis, Janet Leigh, Tom Atkins, John Houseman and Hal Holbrook. This is a slow burn film that builds suspense and is not overly gory. The transfer is great and the special features are great to watch. A great movie for a Halloween get together.

      The Fog (also known as John Carpenter's The Fog) is a 1980 American horror film directed by John Carpenter, who also co-wrote the screenplay and created the music for the film. It stars Adrienne Barbeau, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Atkins, Janet Leigh and Hal Holbrook. It tells the story of a strange, glowing fog that sweeps in over a small coastal town in California, bringing with it the vengeful ghosts of mariners who were killed in a shipwreck there exactly 100 years before.

      THE FOG

      The Fog has never quite attained the cultural cachet that Carpenter's Halloween has, but it's a very entertaining and often fairly spooky entry in Carpenter's filmography. There's an undeniably silly aspect to some of the scares, but the moral fiber of the film is where it derives some unexpected power from. This new Collector's Edition features excellent video and audio and comes jam packed with great supplements. Highly recommended.
