The Fog (1980)

4 / 5

Well this didn't exactly start off with a bang and the dialogue can be on the slow side of things, but the ending makes this a definitely worthwhile venture. The story is about shadow zombie pirates who turn up in a thick fog to seek revenge. Sure it sounds ridiculous and the actual gore/horror moments aren't exactly plentiful but still the idea of the whole thing and the ominous shadowy way they are portrayed and the sense of doom and struggle add the great human elements that one can count on from Carpenter. It may not be his best or his most exciting but this one will definitely pay off if you are patient.
