A good movie

Since I have a weak spot for John Carpenter’s movies, I definitely had to watch this flick at some point. Back then, Carpenter was at the top of his career and all the movies he directed at the time became some classics. This one came after 'Halloween' and before 'Escape from New York' and it must be his most spooky movie. According to Roger Ebert, the fog was a disappointing villain but I don't... read more

"02.10. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY John Carpenter Should be as highly regarded as the other Carpenter classics, because it is a goddamn awesome film. Although I might've preferred it, if the villain were just the fog and it didn't manifest as some creepy dudes with sharp objects. But the film is classy as hell anyway. Kind of reminded me of the Lovecraft story "The Colour Out of Space". "

" This is probably the last really good old-fashioned ghost story before the horror genre drowned totally in serial killers and supernatural boogeymen who hunt down virgins. The great John Houseman sets the style at the beginning with his scary campfire tale and from that moment I'm hooked together with the great atmospheric music from John Carpenter. The fog (smoke machine) help giving the film a dream-like and creepy force on it's own. It is an underrated John Carpenter movie that is a lot bett"

"24/7/17 John Carpenter's creepy ghost story about a small coastal town that gets engulfed in a fog, bringing with it the spirits of a pirate ship. A master class in how to make a scary movie, with Carpenter refusing to go for cheap thrills and graphic gore, instead of leaving it up to the imagination. If you can get over just how quickly Jamie Lee Curtis and Tom Atkins gets together, this is a terrific chiller."

"Curses are meant to be taken, serious. Stealing from pirates, and failing to save them during a storm? You're cursed! Bitten by a werewolf? You're cursed! Get the idea?"

"Viimeisiä vielä olennaisia sivistyksestä puuttuvia Carpenterin tuotoksia. Musat oli jälleen jeesh ja jengi spedeili itseään hengiltä oikein kiitettävään tahtin. Mutta Tom Atkins ilman viiksiään oli hieman häiritsevää."
