The Fog (1980)

Directed by: John Carpenter
Written by: John Carpenter, Debra Hill
Starring: Adrienne Barbeau, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Atkins and Janet Leigh

THE FOG is one of my favorite John Carpenter movies. I love the deliberate pace. Tom Atkins is a badass. The atmosphere and ghosts very creepy.

What I enjoy about this film, too is the time it takes to tell the story. It doesn’t rush kills or scares. Carpenter takes his time to set up the characters and the underlying legend of the ghosts. Solid film and still holds up.
