On the 56th episode of The Film ‘89 Podcast, Steve, Haydn & Skye take a ghoulish trip to the haunted coastal town of Antonio Bay as they celebrate the 40th anniversary of John Carpenter’s tale of ghostly revenge, The Fog. Carpenter is a firm favourite director amongst the Film ‘89 team and following on from one of our earliest episodes where Carpenter’s seminal sci-fi/horror classic, The Thing was given the Film ‘89 treatment, this time we look at his 1980 cult classic, The Fog, a ghost story that underwent considerable post-production re-shooting after Carpenter felt that it lacked the requisite scares compared to its contemporaries. Carpenter and his producing/writing partner Debra Hill had a lot of expectation upon them to follow-up their 1978 smash-hit, Halloween, a film that was one of the most profitable films of all time and had firmly cemented Carpenter as a director to watch. The Fog is the perfect film for Halloween season, a classic campfire tale of revenge that features a cast that includes both Hollywood royalty and many recurring faces from Carpenter’s filmography.
