The Fog

The Fog ★★★★½

Great vibes John 👌

A testament to how important location is to John Carpenter’s storytelling. It’s almost like the foundation for a recipe; whether it’s a suburban neighbourhood in Illinois, an Arctic research base, an abandoned police precinct, a spooky institution or, in this case, a quiet Californian coastal town, Carpenter sprinkles a little atmosphere, music and character over the top and turns it into something magical.
