The Fog – 4k Restoration

John Carpenter · 1980
89min · DCP

4K restoration with a 5.1 audio mix. "In the decades since THE FOG debuted, Carpenter’s made a wide enough variety of films — action, science-fiction, social satire and more — that this particular picture no longer seems like a departure. Ultimately, it’s a John Carpenter movie: concerned with group dynamics, unhelpful authority figures, strong women, the sins of the past, and that moment when helpless isolation shades into outright terror." Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times

A weather beaten old fisherman tells an ancient tale of betrayal and death to fascinated children as they huddle together by their campfire. As a piece of driftwood in a child’s hands glows with spectral light an eerie fog envelops the bay and from its midst emerge dripping demonic victims of a century old shipwreck… seeking revenge.
