John Carpenter says it is a sequel to his 1980 horror film Fog is at an early stage of development. Fog stepped between two of Carpenter’s masterpieces, Halloween i The thing, so it is widely neglected although it is a popular entry into the director’s repertoire. Carpenter returned Halloween actress Jamie Lee Curtis for the film and convinced her mother Janet Leigh to apply as well. It was the first time that the screaming queens were together on screen.

Fog it is located in a coastal California city and follows its inhabitants as a mysterious fog rolls over their city. The city is celebrating the hundredth anniversary of its founding, and the fog brings in some uninvited guests – the ghosts of past sailors, who were killed in a shipwreck off the coast years before. Fog was rewritten in 2005 and that version of the film met with even more negative reviews than the original. Despite this, however, Fog he could come back.

Watching Carpenter take part in David Gordon Green 2018 Halloween sequel, his first return to Halloween franchise from the original, his blessing is a good sign. Halloween serves as a direct sequel to Carpenter’s original film, restoring the many that followed it, and probably revived it Halloween the franchise, which spawned two sequels, should be released in 2021 and 2022. Potential sequel Fog could catch that same magic if done properly. The Halloween sequels update the slasher genre for the 21st century, addressing themes of generational trauma and mob violence and Fog 2 could do something similar.

FogThe original story focuses on a group of ancestors who feel betrayed by a city that reaped all the benefits of its time as a sailor without any consequences. Such themes could work well below and could highlight the ways in which the horror genre has always had socially conscious themes beneath the violence. It is too early to say when Fog the sequel might as well come out, but with Carpenter on board, I hope it happens sooner rather than later.
