    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.

    nice and spooky

    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.

    Classic horror movie

    One of John Carpenter's best films. With an all star cast that keeps your heart rate up. Carpenter uses sound as much as sight to ensure the viewer is never prepared for what will happen, you look left and the scare comes from the right. Leaps and bounds better than the remake that came out in the early 00's.

    I don't need to tell you how good The Fog is as a movie. You should already know that. I've owned this movie on blu-ray, and now I've rebought it AGAIN once I saw the great new steelbook design and packaging. This great horror classic now has a great package to accompany it.

    This is one of my favorite movies ever. Finally got it on DVD. I seem to watch it about once a month so I might as well own it. Carpenter is one if my favorite directors and composers. The soundtrack fits so well with the movie and is just as important as the writing and acting. It's got pirate ghosts... PIRATE GHOSTS!

    Creepy, atmospheric, and delightfully of its time, Carpenter's THE FOG is a great late night spookfest that no horror collection should be without! And this steelbook is absolutely stunning - beautifiul new artwork. Grab it now before it's gone!

    I'm a longtime fan of John Carpenter's THE FOG and I own multiple versions of the film. And this steelbook by Scream Factory is absolutely beautiful. If you're a movie collector, a steelbook collector, or just a fan of The Fog, you will love this.

    Underrated Classic

    Compared to Halloween, I prefer The Fog. This is classic John Carpenter, from the direction to the score. The steelbook is nice, glossy, and the remaster is great. I'd highly recommend for any classic horror or Carpenter fan.
