He basically puts us into a situation, a world where we end up sharing the danger, the questions, the mystery, along with a bunch of characters. Like we feel part of the gang.
Setting and surrounding is fundamental in films like this and that's where Carpenter does his best to engage and involve us. So basically it would not even be necessary to really know what this fog is about: fear is there to stay and the waiting for it to come counts even more than the final solution.
Presented in a good blu ray edition, with some grain and lack of definition that do not really compromise the vision but, instead, give it an even fascinating look.
.... Not sure why this is coming up as 'Special Edition', though ... I didn't spot any extras.
Still brilliant nearly 40 years later. Now if Amazon could just release John Carpenter's "The Thing" to compliment the prequel (confusingly called "The Thing" and released in 2011) onto Amazon Video, we'll have his greatest horror works to enjoy!
Most of the scares having been added at a very late stage in order to make the film actually scary, The Fog was a triumph of drafting, trial and error and just plain hard work and ingenuity. The scares are not over-the-top and work perfectly, but it's the Carpenter mise enscene that always excites and chills me. Simplicity is the man's muse and whether that is because he is not technically or intelligently able I do not really care. What Carpenter can portray, the feelings of dread, suspense and raw terror, through merely wide angle still frames of empty rooms and well placed camera shots is simply genius. The shots of the fog rolling in and the shapes within as well as opening exposition all add to an overall sense of foreboding that is sorely missing from most directors in the genre today.
This, Halloween and The Thing are all high recommendations and each classics worthy of study and their inimitable place in the history of horror cinema.
It's a ghostly tale of revenge with the current inhabitants of Antonio Bay paying the price for the sins of their ancestors 100 years ago, beautifully shot and full of atmosphere and suspense, the film holds up very well considering it's 34 years old. As with all Carpenter fans, we just keep our fingers crossed and hope there's another great film to come from this wonderful director, if not then he's left us with some great films that I will continue to watch.
This movie remains a classic today and solidified John Carpenter as a true master of Horror.
In 2005 some idiots had the bright idea to re-make this classic tale of terror and turn it into a love story of all things with acting worse than a kids Christmas nativity play. Avoid that re-make like the plague as it is a dismal boring and pathetic movie. There is only one fog and this is it. The one true classic that would make you think twice before venturing outside on a foggy night.
