The Fog ***

“The Fog” comes from a time when horror films had amazing soundtracks.  John Carpenter, the director, also scores his movies, and knows how it should enhance the images on screen.  It is what I remember most about “The Fog”.  That and how I loved the locations and the atmosphere.  If anything, Carpenter’s films are always entertaining to look at.

The story took place in a sleepy, coastal town where a thick fog rolls in and brings along undead pirates looking for buried treasure.

It was an effective horror film, made in the days when directors took their time to build up suspense instead of assaulting us with ear piercing sounds and torture porn.
