Play `misty' for me!!!

`Inside the Fog' is a routine `making of'- documentary. The structure and the footage shown are typical, but that doesn't mean it can't be informative. Debra Hill and John Carpenter (among other crew-members) enlighten us a little how they got the idea for the film, how they created those breath-taking fog effects etc. Some interesting trivia to discover there since Hill and Carpenter actually thought up the plot when they were visiting Stonehenge while all of a sudden a fogbank surrounded them. Also pretty interesting is the comparison between this film, and John Carpenter's big breakthrough `Halloween'… Even though they're both suspenseful films, they're entirely different, and it's fascinating to see how Carpenter tried to create a whole other style of film. Perhaps the most intriguing part of the documentary is how cast and crew explains how `The Fog' initially failed during a screening session. The audience wasn't impressed and the crew urgently had to add sequences and tension elements before the deadline. `Tales from the Mist' is an interesting little extra when you love the film. It comes as an extra on the Special Edition DVD.
