A completely solid piece of horror filmmaking that's only slightly undone by its flaws as a piece of horror storytelling.

Carpenter has always been a master of scaring us with what we're not seeing as opposed to delivering an onslaught of carnage to assault our senses and The Fog shows that you can scare the hell out of people without showing them a lot.

Though the plot is implausible and the unfolding story hardly makes any sense, Carpenter stylishly presents an eerie atmosphere for the zombie invasion.

The Fog is right in line with the types of film Carpenter made before his professional fall from grace: It's unpretentious genre fun, stylishly assembled and populated with colorful characters.

... makes the most of the dramatic possibilities inherent in an isolated coastal town, as well as the scare potential of darkness, fog, and silent strangers bearing longshoremen's hooks.

During this period, Carpenter and his fine collaborator the late Debra Hill were so good at crafting suspenseful, slow burn horror stories with multiple storylines.

O roteiro é de uma tolice pavorosa, mas Carpenter consegue gerar tensão e bons sustos até mesmo com o recurso absurdo de fazer seus vilões baterem na porta antes de entrar.
| Original Score: 3/5

Ten remakes wouldn't even surpass this creepy classic's greatness. The definitive horror film.
