Conclusion: I already had this film on VHS and updated to Blu-ray. I have always liked this film, very atmospheric. It's not full of the latest special effects and some of the acting is a little suspect... but it's a great watch especially if you use your imagination! But I only gave it 4 stars... Why? I expected more on Blu-ray, but I could not really see much difference between the original VHS and Blu-ray. Yes the picture is a little more crisp.
Conclusion: Made during John Carpenter's golden run of horror films his classic tale of a small California town haunted and terrified by the secrets of it's own past in the form of a mysterious fog that swamps it still stands up as an effective chiller even after over 30 years.
Conclusion: Hailed as Carpenters finest work and part of his apocalyptic trilogy, The Fog brings together a handful of fine actors regularly used by Carpenter, stunning visuals and a sense of dread seldom found in the horror genre today. Set in a small town cut off from civilisation, a small group of survivors try to piece together the towns sordid history while on the run from the creeping fog and the horrors concealed within.
