The Fog Review

Image for The Fog

A tale of shipwrecked spectres squelching their way through a fluorescent fog to wreak vengeance on a seaside town.

★★★★

Ghoulish, tense and utterly fantastical, John Carpenter's tale of shipwrecked spectres squelching their way through a fluorescent fog to wreak vengeance on a seaside town is a classic campfire yarn.

Sizzling with shock and suggestion - the ethereal killers in the mist are rarely seen, their meathooks just glinting in the unnatural light - it is only the shipmates' corporeal revelation at the climax that sullies the tension.

Sizzling with shock and suggestion.
