This week in 1980, we have killer sailors, blood-thirsty cannibals, and some good old-fashioned body horror. First up, John Carpenter’s The Fog. It’s a seaside tale about the vengeful ghosts from a sunken ship, who come back in a glowing fog and claim the lives of townspeople. Jamie Lee Curtis, Nancy Loomis and John Carpenter reunite for this movie, along with Carpenter’s ex Adrienne Barbeau, who plays town dj and ultimate ghost-fighter Stevie Wayne. Janet Leigh also stars.

Cannibal Holocaust is a hilarious musical romp set in the Amazon. Kidding. But the Ruggero Deodato-directed Cannibal Holocaust is actually the original found footage film.  The movie tells the story of a documentary crew sent to the rain forest to study and document indigenous tribes. The crew goes missing and all that’s recovered is their “anthropological” footage documenting highly-graphic scenes of death, dismemberment, sex, and cannibalism. All the good stuff. »
