Aired on Pittsburgh's CHILLER THEATER in 1979
20 October 2012 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

1962's "Out of the Fog," issued in the US under its original source title, "Fog for a Killer," showed up on Pittsburgh's CHILLER THEATER on October 13 1979. Both titles lead one to believe it will be an atmospheric thriller about a madman who preys on helpless blonde women during the light of the full moon, cleverly hiding from detection in the foggy night. Unfortunately, the police investigation rarely strays from the office of the Superintendent (John Arnatt), focusing exclusively on a belligerent ex con (David Sumner) who can spot a 'copper' a mile away. All of the murders take place off screen, no other characters are regarded as genuine suspects, and most disappointing of all, there is no fog to be seen anywhere until the final reel of this 66 minute quickie. Although the police discover that the crimes are committed every four weeks, each time the moon is full, this too is a tantalizing detail that goes nowhere. Definitely not a horror film, and unsatisfying even as a mystery, benefiting from a fine supporting cast, including James Hayter, Jack Watson, and a blonde Susan Travers ("The Snake Woman," "The Abominable Dr. Phibes"), plus Hammer regulars Michael Ripper and George Woodbridge. Unseen on television for decades, this is now available on Region 2 DVD, on a double bill with another British melodrama centering on an ex con, 1954's "Radio Cab Murder."
