THE FOG(1980) Director: John Carpenter Starring: Adrienne Barbeau, Hal Holbrook, Jamie Lee Curtis, Janet Leigh, Tom Atkins, John Houseman, and Nancy Loomis. John Carpenter followed up his Horror Classic, "Halloween", with this creepy supernatural ghost story. Reuniting with his leading lady from "Halloween", the Scream Queen, Jamie Lee Curtis, and also putting together a wonderful cast, Carpenter gave Horror fans one more classic and chilling film that pulls you in from the start and doesn't let go. An evil Fog engulfs a coastal California town, as the Fog draws closer, the town and it's people are haunted by the ghosts of the past. As the town gears up for a weekend of fun and celebration, little do they know that a sceret is about to surface, a secret that many people thought was long forgotten, but it's has now come back to haunt them. This is no ordinary Fog, this Fog has a purpose and is being driven by revenge. The town of Antonio Bay has some long buried secrets of it's own, and the ghosts of this town's past come back to seek revenge on the townspeople. The Mayor of the town decides to go ahead with the weekend celebration, and the ghosts of the past decide to come back to give the townspeople a history lesson of their own. Horror Master John Carpenter delivers some great scares throughout the film, he creates a haunting mood from the start of the film, and he doesn't let up at all. One of the wonderful things that I love about John Carpenter's films is the always terrific and haunting music scores that Carpenter adds to his films. "The Fog" has a chilling music score, and it's ranks as one of Carpenter's best, it's a standout and it enhances the film as well. "The Fog" has a wonderful cast, that includes Jamie Lee Curtis in her second Horror film, and the always great character actor, Hal Holbrook as the town's priest. Adrienne Barbeau, who is a frequent Horror leading lady for both John Carpenter and Horror Master Wes Craven, is very good in the lead role. Barbeau stars as the town's DJ who is trying to warn everyone of the coming Fog's danger. Tom Atkins, and Nancy Loomis are also in fine form. Also, in an interesting bit of casting, John Carpenter cast Jamie Lee Curtis alongside her mother, Janet Leigh. Janet Leigh, of course, is one of Horror film's most famous leading ladies, after all, she was the screaming 'Shower Victim', in Alfred Hitchcock's classic, "Psycho". To have two of Horror's most popular Scream Queen's together in the same Horror film was a brilliant stroke of casting, and a nod from Carpenter as he showcased one of the Horror film's first Scream Queen's, Janet Leigh, with the then rising Scream Queen, her own daughter, Jamie Lee Curtis. John Carpenter is one of the Horror genre's best directors, and throughout his years in Filmmaking, he has made many classic Horror films. "The Fog" stands out among Carpenter's best films, and it is a classic and haunting Horror film.
