The Fog 1980 ★★★½

There's something in the fog!
-Stevie Wayne

An often over looked John Carpenter horror classic. It was sandwiched between his releases of Halloween and Escape from New York so it's easy to see why. While it isn't quite as good as those two films, it's still extremely inventive in it's set up and how Carpenter builds tension throughout the film.

It's head above most horror films of the 80s in it's directing, script and acting. This is back when Carpenter was making films that seemed filled with real people that made the terror feel all the more real. The only thing really missing is a stronger third act and this movie could have been proudly put next to Carpenter's best films.
