This 28 minute retrospective documentary covers some neat ground on the production of John Carpenter's supremely spooky horror cult classic "The Fog." Among the people interviewed are Carpenter, producer/co-writer Debra Hill, lead actress Adrienne Barbeau, co-star Janet Leigh, production designer Tommy Lee Wallace, and cinematographer Dean Cundey. Carpenter cites EC Comics, Edgar Allan Poe, and H.P. Lovecraft as major influences for the movie's overall tone and style. Moreover, Carpenter and Hill reveal that they first got the idea for the film when they saw a mysterious fog bank while visiting Stonehenge. In addition, the difficulty of creating and shooting the fog itself is addressed at some length, as well as the benefits of using the widescreen anamorphic format, John Houseman working for just one day (his lone scene was done on a sound stage) and Carpenter's simple approach to the premise. However, the best and most compelling stuff covered herein is when Carpenter admits that the original rough cut didn't work and thus an extensive amount of re-shoots were required to fix the film (for example, the opening montage of strange activity in the town at the start and the scene with Darwin Joston as a coroner were added in said re-shoots. Naturally, a wealth of cool production photos and choice clips are featured throughout. Worth a watch for fans of the film.
You forgot about the head crabs, the giant ant lions and hornets. and finally the humanoid members of the Combine. 1:47 ITS AN ALASKAN BULL WORM. I would take a zombie apocalypse over this any day.
