The Fog is a horror movie directed by legendary filmmaker John Carpenter in 1980. Antonio Bay is a small seaside town in California that is getting ready to celebrate its 100th anniversary. As the anniversary draws closer, very strange things start to happen around the community. Fishermen are brutally murdered, things start to move on their own, electronics begin to fail, phones don't work, and a dense, glowing fog rolls into the town. All of these mysterious events are linked to dark events from Antonio Bay's past and the small clipper ship, the Elizabeth Dane. Only the priest of the community's church, Father Malone (Hal Holbrook), knows what is truly happening. Will he be able to stop the fog from killing all the citizens of Antonio Bay before time runs out? The Fog relies on creepy camera effects and a suspenseful atmosphere instead of gore, and many critics consider it to be a masterpiece of the horror genre.
