Since I have a weak spot for John Carpenter, I definitely had to watch this flick. Back then, Carpenter was in his golden age and all the movies he directed became instant classics. This movie 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 agree with him. I thought it was very efficient and I always enjoyed it in a horror movie when the protagonists are facing a faceless and dehumanized enemy (see 'Cabin Fever' as well). Another thing I enjoyed is that Carpenter didn't waste any time with some sub-stories involving the characters, those stories are always pointless in my opinion, instead, he focuses on the fog and its effects and that was much appreciated. Of course, the acting is rather cheesy and the whole thing is nothing really amazing but still, it remains one of the most satisfying ghost movies I have seen and it still stand out pretty good 30 years later. To conclude, I really enjoyed it and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Carpenter's work.
