The Fog The Fog - Wikipedia Love this movie just can't believe it's been forty 2/8/1980 years since it was released. Directed John Carpenter was young creative and hungry as was Deborah Hill. Great movie just reliving the movie on blu ray tonight. Great cast excellent crew work and some awesome cinematography by John Carpenter. Hal Holbrook as a believable Father Malone, Janet Leigh as Kathy Williams throw in Tom Atkins and Jamie Lee Curtis and you have a lot of fun brewin' with The Fog. Scared the crap out of me when I first saw it. Share your memories of The Fog.
