The Fog

1980, Movie, NR, 91 mins

A ghost ship occupied by 100-year-old corpses terrorizes a coastal community that is covered in a heavy fog.

While some have simply argued that a rolling fog bank just isn't scary (tell that to Val Lewton), the film's real problem is Carpenter's diffuse narrative, which introduces far too many characters--forcing the director consistently to cut away to each story strand, thus destroying much of the suspense.
