Antonio Bay, a quaint, small seaside town is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its founding. That night a heavy, mysterious fog rolls through the town and people begin to die in savage ways. Rumours of a secret as old as the town begin to surface and the people of Antonio Bay realise they are victims of long dead sailors who have come to take revenge for their own murders at the hands of the towns founding fathers. The townspeople can only wait for the fog to roll in and pray that they are not the next to die.Carpenter creates a chilling film with fine performances from Adrienne Barbeau, Hal Holbrook, and the fog itself, which creeps and crawls around as if it were alive. The film elicits scares out of what is not seen rather than what is, and Carpenter exploits that style perfectly. One of Carpenters earlier films which helped to establish his reputation as a master filmmaker.
