Movie Quote
Something came out of the fog and tried to destroy us. And in one moment, it vanished. But if this has been anything, but a nightmare and if we don’t wake up to find ourselves safe in our beds, it could come again.

SYNOPSIS: Strange things begin to occurs as a tiny California coastal town prepares to commemorate its centenary. Inanimate objects spring eerily to life; Rev. Malone (Hal Holbrook) stumbles upon a dark secret about the town’s founding; radio announcer Stevie (Adrienne Barbeau) witnesses a mystical fire; and hitchhiker Elizabeth (Jamie Lee Curtis) discovers the mutilated corpse of a fisherman. Then a mysterious iridescent fog descends upon the village, and more people start to die.

MY RATING: (★★★★) When watching a movie from the 80s keep in mind …it’s a movie from the 80s. It’s not going to be technologically fantastic, there will be no graphics or special effects.  With that said I love this classic 80s movie.  It’s not a slasher film, there’s isn’t a ton of blood and gore, but I still love it.  Mainly because of Adrienne Barbeau and Jamie Lee Curtis. Good story, creepy premiss, and a hook. What’s not to love about this …anyways.

Happy Viewing and enjoy the movie!
