Default The Fog (1980)

Easily one of my favourites. Actually, I like it just as much as Halloween and The Thing (if not more).

It has many of what I like to call the "John Carpenter Family" in it- Adrienne Barbeau, Tom Atkins, Jamie Lee Curtis, Charles Cyphers, Nancy Keyes and Hal Holbrook... As well as JANET LEIGH! Its also genuinely creepy and beautifully directed.

Any other fans out there?

Yeah I saw it but thought this deserved a thread of it's own.

I presume you can't play region A then? Because the upcoming Scream Factory will be MUCH better than the UK one.

I have that one as well, the one with the green packaging and the booklet right? Brilliant film!

I've just reviewed Scream Factory's US release over on Av forums.

Under supervision from Dean Cundey, this new transfer has been restored by Scream themselves ... and I can confirm that it looks terrific.

It is certainly darker, but the clarity and the detail are tremendous. The colour-timing is correct - well, we can't argue with Cundey, can we? - and those incredible compositions look immaculate, with stunning depth afforded those majestic landscapes. Which reminds me ... Adrienne Barbeau looks simply gorgeous as well.

If you can play Region A, it is definitely time to ditch the DVD and THAT travesty put out by Optimum.

You know, despite all the horror that neck of the woods has received in this, Halloween III, The Howling, Dead & Buried, The Birds and, um, Murder She Wrote ... I'd love to go there to the coastal hamlets of Northern California. The Fog is one of the most entrancing American horror films.

There was a time when John Carpenter ruled the genre.

Cheers guys,

Chris McEneany
