It tells the story of a strange,glowing fog that sweeps in over a small coastal town in California , bringing with it the vengeful ghosts of mariners who were killed there 100 years earlier. Uniquely set in a small town called Antonio Bay, where the inhabitants are preparing the celebrations for the town’s 100th anniversary. The film has a good and original creepy story with awesome ghostly figures and gore, without any blood.
This is one of the films where u need to pay attention to the detailing of the characters of the films. The excellent cast includes mom and daughter scream queens Janet Leigh and Jamie Lee Curtis and both of them did a good job here. Barbeau leads the cast well from the solitude of her lighthouse and she keeps help the tension up with her delivery. Hal Holbrook was fantastic as father Malone . Carpenter brilliantly builds up an unbearable tension through simple methods , like long shots of an isolated countryside and a haunting music score.
