4.0 out of 5 stars Patchy but with flashes of genius, 12 Mar. 2011
This review is from: The Fog - Special Edition [DVD] (DVD)
This is a scary movie that unfortunately has a lot of bits that don't quite work and some waffling from principal characters.

However what John Carpenter does best is make creepy movies and the opening action sequence had me hiding my eyes when I saw this at age 12 on TV.

Some things don't gel, like why the dead sailor briefly comes back as a zombie but the malevolent feel of this film exudes from its grisly atmosphere and the lighthouse scene is genuinely adrenalin-inducing.

Further kudos for the ending which caught me off guard and is one of the best "Carrie" moments of 80s horror cinema.

Forget the dire remake and focus on this. A scary and imaginative movie.
