    John Carpenter United States, 1981

    John Carpenter United States, 1980

    After the unexpected success of Halloween, cult auteur John Carpenter kicked off the ‘80s with The Fog. This spooky-silly California ghost tale is transformed by Carpenter’s anamorphic widescreen images into something densely ethereal and rich in macabre atmosphere.
