Whaddya MEAN they’re remaking The Fog it’s a classi oh it’s a 4k *restoration*.

Awesome: “New York based Rialto Pictures will release John Carpenter’s landmark horror movie The Fog on October 26, in its first-ever major restoration. The horror classic, in a full 4K restoration from Studiocanal, opens October 26 for limited runs at the Metrograph in New York, Landmark’s Nuart in Los Angeles and The Music Box Theatre in Chicago.”  Plus it’ll be on the Alamo Drafthouse circuit for Halloween week, so that the rest of us can see it if we want to.

I saw The Fog when I was an impressionable teenager, and it freaked me absolutely out.  I’d seen edited-for-network-TV horror movies before, and they were scary — but this was the real, gory, unedited stuff.  Still remember that final scene.  It’s a shame that my wife doesn’t like horror flicks, or else I might try to go see this one at a Drafthouse.

PS: Wow, the picture looks sharp.

    Not to diminish the restoration, but they did remake The Fog. Back in 2005. Carpenter was a producer on it. Clark Kent from Smallville was in it.
