    Ghosts In The Mist

    I love good old fashion ghost stories and John Carpenter knows how to create them. He is a master at creating an atmosphere which sets the stage for the story.

    THE FOG

    a good ghost story. John Carpenter directs this film about a sleepy coastal town that is terrorized by vengeance seeking mariners who want their gold that was stolen exactly 100 years ago.not overly scary but some chills and a spooky story will keep you interested. Jamie Lee Curtis is solid as a hitchiker who stumbles upon the eerie happenings, Hal Holbrook is convincing as Father Malone and Adrienne Barbeau is good as a lighthouse music DJ.

    Creepy

    It has its creepy moments. You don't quite see the pirates except there in the dark. It leaves you to imagine what they could look like. Another good John Carpenter film. The soundtrack, atmosphere and suspense is good. Remake, not so much. In this one there's a lot of familiar faces from other Carpenter films. Recommend, if you're a fan of scary movies or films by John Carpenter.

    The Ultimate Sinister Fog Movie!

    This is my favorite John Carpenter movie aside from Halloween and The Thing! The perfect horror film! There's no excessive language, nudity, or violence. Can't understand why it's rated R. The Fog has the best pirate ghosts in motion picture history! Carpenter continues to surpass himself. The remake of The Fog is pure garbage! See the original instead!

    The Fog

    One of Carpenter's best, THE FOG might not reach the level of HALLOWEEN nor is it as original as THE THING. However, it makes up for that by being something most 80s horror movies weren't; an old school ghost tale that relies not on set pieces, speical effects or gore, but on character development, tight storytelling and atmosphere. Highly recommended.

    The Fog- it delivers!

    I first saw this on tv and decided to buy it. It's about a small town thats celebrating its centennial. 100 years before, a colony of lepers was wanting to move in less than a mile away, so the towns people killed them by tricking them to come into the shore, they lured them in by a fire, on a night when an eerie fog settled in the bay. The ship went crashing down in the rocks, and the townspeople stole their gold. In the early morning of the centennial, everything goes crazy, car alarms go off and lights flash, horns go off and much much more. The priest in the town, Father Malone, discovers a journal left by his grandfather, who killed the lepers, that describes the plan of how they did it. Well, another eerie fog settles in, and lights are flashing in it. There's something in the fog. Something evil. It kills all the decsendants of those who killed them, all while searching for their gold. This movie works very greatly in your mind. It is a classic ghost story. I enjoyed this movie despite many terrible reviews that I read. It stars Adrienne Barbeau, Jamie Lee Curtis, Janet Leigh and others. This movie delivers, long after one of the best lines of the movie, as well as the most haunting, ''Watch for the fog,'' Barbeau says. I'd strongly advise buying this movie! It is a must-have for any horror fan
