Rialto Pictures and The Retro Film Series are proud to announce that John Carpenter’s 1980 horror classic, “The Fog” will open in an all-new, first-ever 4K Restoration from StudioCanal at the Carolina Theatre of Durham for a one-week engagement, starting October 26th.
“The Fog” was released in 1980 as Carpenter’s first title after “Halloween.” He directed, co-wrote the screenplay, and created the music for the film. “Halloween” star Jamie Lee Curtis returned for “The Fog,” along with Adrienne Barbeau, Tom Atkins, Hal Holbrook, and Janet Leigh — Curtis’ real-life mother, who portrayed Curtis’ character’s mother in the movie.
“The Fog” tells the story of a strange, glowing fog that sweeps over a small coastal town in California, bringing with it the vengeful ghosts of mariners who were killed in a shipwreck 100 years before. The pic was remade in 2005.
“‘The Fog" has been our most requested title for as long as we have handled the StudioCanal library here,” said Eric Di Bernardo, Rialto’s director of sales. “It is Carpenter’s most visually alluring film and we think it’s been worth the wait.”
“The Fog” was made for $1 million and grossed $21 million at the box office.
