  1. Kavionna's rating of the film The Fog

    The film was okay. It was scary at times and EvenThough the plot is debatable and the unfolding story hardly makes any sense, Carpenter stylishly presents an eerie atmosphere for the zombie invasion. The scenes caught my attention because of the cinematography that it displayed.

  2. Victor W's rating of the film The Fog

    This vintage "horror" created by John Carpenter will surprisingly leave you invested enough to completely finish the film. The horror itself was close to nonexistent, However, the character development and story/plot prove to be well portrayed. Its shocking to see how John used a normal element of life(fog) and attempt to use it as an element of horror.

  3. Wyatt69's rating of the film The Fog

    The film maintained a fast enough pace while consistently feeding the audience with a classic sense of horror. The fog served well as an extended representative of mystery and the ethereal horrors lurking within. The character development made the plot-line engrossing as well as entertaining. Ultimately Carpenter's story was easy to follow as it brought several protagonists to terms with the city's haunted past.

  4. DSpaceNine's rating of the film The Fog

    Fun flashback to 80's movies, and what a great cast!

  6. Greg Boschen's rating of the film The Fog

    This film has such incredible heart mixed with intense scares. At its center is Adrienne Barbeau as Stevie Wayne. It is a very moving performance amongst a cast of excellent performances.

  7. raf yo's rating of the film The Fog

    Nice to watch if you like that kind of horror films. i was too disappointed by the ending anyway.

  8. Samuel T.'s rating of the film The Fog

    White Noise a la Assault on P13, an elusive invasion.

  9. Morris Bros.'s rating of the film The Fog

  10. Brian's rating of the film The Fog

    The Fog makes for an entertaining, 80s scary movie. The acting in this film, helps viewers set the mood for the story. For this being a older film, the director does an excellent job of setting up the scene, and the actors fill in their roles showing the horror side of this film. John Carpenter does a great job for picking out the right actors, and setting up the scene for all of his movies, especially for the fog.

  11. Bernie's rating of the film The Fog

    I was hoping for some old fashion horror fun in John Carpenters The Fog, and I was not disappointed. The Fog builds tension and suspense right from the start as you try to figure out what’s happening in this small town and rarely lets up. It is quickly paced and does not relying on too much on gore, leaving it to the viewers imagination. This is not one of Carpenters stronger films but still an enjoyable ghost story.

  12. Stefan Drees's rating of the film The Fog

    Still a nice horror film (or better: ghost storry), in spite of some gaps in the logic of the narrative. Carpenter's own music contributes a lot to the whole atmosphere.

  13. Nick Schwab's rating of the film The Fog

    Unlike The Carp's less Hitchcockian-suspense flicks, the atmosphere here and in Halloween is much more uneven. As the film's nighttime scenes often make unease creep up the spine... but akin to seeing Myers in daylight, it dissipates in the sunlight. Even the scare pieces aren't as smart, being either silly and/or of the false/jump scare variety. Carp's best paranoid and/or campy, both of which, came a bit later.

  14. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film The Fog

    Rewatch on a whim...the fog itself is sinister enough as a story element of cosmic horror, so it's a little disappointing to see the ghosts (or wraiths, or zombies, or whatever they are) personified, and the intro tacked-on in order to turn it into more of a 'campfire story.' Love the empty beach town setting, and the score -one long dirge- is probably the best Carpenter ever wrote.

  15. Tyler Wright's rating of the film The Fog

    Although not on the same level as The Thing or Halloween, The Fog certainly offers alot of great tension from Carpenter's distinct style. It's certainly a great horror film.

  16. Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Fog

    A curiously old fashioned B Picture-type horror: high on atmosphere but thin on characterisation (but then that's hardly a strong trait for the genre in general). Maybe all is that is missing is black & white cinematography to round off the rear view feel. The lack of gore is a pleasing surprise.

  17. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Fog

    Carpenter's 11th hour inspiration—to add a literal "campfire horror story" framing device to the beginning of the film—turns out to make all the difference, turning the appealing slightness of this ghost story into a feature, not a bug. Other pros: the lively interconnected cast, the pacing, the eerie atmosphere, and a lead heroine who proves just how much Carpenter understood Howard Hawks.

  18. Vasco Bação's rating of the film The Fog

    The movie that woke my interest in cinema when I was a kid. The wide, precisely framed daylight scenery plus the Tourneurian atmosphere (the fog, the constant sense of menace) struck a nerve then and fortunately still arouses the same juvenile excitement now. The music, the glowing blue and white reflected in the coastal houses at night, the editing, it all works like a wonder. So American too.

  19. kartina obskura's rating of the film The Fog

    so elegant, so good, that fog was almost contemplative

  20. Dada Kubin's rating of the film The Fog

    “The Fog” touches upon the issue of building societies on atrocities and murder, the story which lures behind most modern states. Unfortunately as a movie it lacks impact because the ghosts of the sea men are not scary; instead they’re rather clumsy and corny at least by today’s standards. Otherwise it’s vintage Carpenter, patiently crafted with good characterisation.

  21. Matthew Martens's rating of the film The Fog

    Front-loaded, but somehow less dated than when it first appeared (go figure). Peaks early with Radio Barbeau, whose tendrils of throat-smoke all but invite the heavy weather they portend.

  22. Glue Sniffer's rating of the film The Fog

    Bożonarodzeniowa filmlista TV4. Ten film uratował mnie po całodziennym oglądaniu filmów w stylu "Masz wiadomość" i "Bezsenność w Seattle" (czy te filmy wogóle się czymś różnią?).

  23. unearthly_red's rating of the film The Fog

    well it's better than jeepers creepers

  24. Bilouaustria's rating of the film The Fog

    CINEMA _ If "Assault on precinct 13" was a remake of "Rio Bravo", "Fog" might be the modern day version of "Cat People" (where the fog plays the role of the dark). Mysticism and great sound ot the 1980's. Carpenter plays with our primal fears and this idea of a climatic violence that avoids the questions of motive and psychology.
