About the Movie

According to legend, six sailors killed when shipwrecked 100 years ago in Antonio Bay, California, will rise to avenge their deaths when a strange glowing fog appears. The town is commemorating the centenary of the shipwreck and Father Malone discovers a diary kept by an ancestor; he learns that the ship was wrecked by six founding fathers of the town. The vengeance of their victims will be the death of six people. As daylight fades, a mysterious fog envelops the town and begins to strew panic and death.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Carpenter scared the wits out of audiences from coast to coast with Halloween. That was a treat. But The Fog is merely a series of bewitching tricks assembled by a film-school craftsman who believed that he could frighten people with slick gimmickry. – Michael Blowen, Boston Globe, Apr 28, 2018

Fresh: Carpenter's use of 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen is beyond legendary and his compositions evoke a town that may as well be the last remaining one on the face of the earth. – Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine, Apr 12, 2014
