There’s something in The Fog and the inhabitants of Antonio Bay are about to discover the bitter truth as they celebrate the town’s centenary.

A seaside town sits in silence, long after the midnight bells have chimed, with the sound of a late night DJ as the only comfort for the restless. But an uncanny spell is being cast, and old secrets are disinterred.

Few horror filmmakers rival director John Carpenter, dripping with iconic titles from The Thing to They Live. The Fog was a chilly change of pace for Carpenter, following his breakout success with Halloween. Bringing back scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis from his iconic slasher, as well as Janet Leigh (Psycho) and his wife Adrienne Barbeau, this is a deeply atmospheric film filled with genuine characters, backed up by yet another classic score from Carpenter in the composer’s seat. 

Alongside PoltergeistThe Fog is a tale of America forced to confront what was repressed in its haunted foundations. What is the price of modern prosperity… and what happens when its got its briny hands around your throat?! This 4K restoration captures the particular eerie hues of Carpenter’s home town invasion.

Screening as part of In Dreams Are Monsters: A Season of Horror Films, a UK-wide film season supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network.
