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

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"In the first shot of John Carpenter’s underrated follow-up to Halloween, a crusty campfire-side storyteller snaps a pocket watch shut with a start, a gesture that announces Carpenter’s intentions to unfurl his pirate ghost story on his own anachronistic timetable. Tinged with pioneer American folklore even as it delivers the wormy goods (reportedly at the studio’s behest), The Fog is at its best when it strips away the mechanics and focuses on atmospheric locations, uncannily imbalanced co"

"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". "

Movie Reviews (301-350) (50 movies items)

" 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.
