The Vault: The Fog (1980)


John Carpenter's early films had an immersive nature. Upon viewing, one is wrapped up in the moody visuals and tailor-made soundtracks.

The Fog was released in 1980. It tells the story of a town haunted by the ghosts of fishermen who were drowned 100 years prior. Carpenter masterfully whips up the tense mood with the dramatic telling of the ghost story, as seen above. The feeling is heightened throughout the film, all the way to the stunning climax.

The Fog also features a great cast, including Adrienne Barbeau, Jamie Lee Curtis, and horror icon Janet Leigh.

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.
