The Fog (1980) Review:

The Fog is one of the many classics by master of horror John Carpenter, maybe not the best, but far from the worst too. It tells the life of a quiet coast town, whose inhabitants prepare to celebrate the city’s 100th birthday. The usual characters of a American movie from the 70’s  are here, including the mayor, the radio woman, etc…  In that, the story itself resembles so many other horror films from the same period (for some reason, it resemble Stephen King’s inspired movie, which are also always located in little Aerican town)

As for the horror aspect of it, the idea of the fog is an interesting and unusual one. The dead sailors, a mix between ghosts and zombies, are simply here to flesh out the action, because the real star of the show here is the fog itself. Watching it slowly cover the city and enter houses and cabin is both stressful and suspenseful. The Fog is, in my opinion, one of the best illustration of the genius of John Carpenter as an horror movie director. All of you horror English movie geeks, should really like this one.

A really pleasant and easy watch for every horror lovers, and a must-see for Carpenter’s fans.
