Tales from the Mist: Inside The Fog (2002)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Nice documentary on the making of THE FOG features interviews with John Carpenter, Debra Hill, Janet Leigh, Dean Cundy, Tommy Lee Wallace and Adrienne Barbeau. Overall this is a very entertaining documentary that gives you a lot of insight into the making of the film as well as various issues that the production ran into. Fans of THE FOG will certainly enjoy seeing those who made it here talking about it even though Jamie Lee Curtis is missing except for some footage from a 1980 interview. I think the best moments of the documentary, as usual, happens when Carpenter is open and honest about various flaws that happened during the making of the movie. The most fascinating aspect comes when Carpenter and Hill discuss the original version of the movie and how awful it apparently turned out. They say that the entire thing was a disaster and when they talk about what stuff they had to re-shoot then you realize how bad it must have been. Carpenter talks about all the re-shoots that are in the movie now and you really do realize that the majority of the film has the new scenes and it really makes you curious to see what the original film was. Fans of THE FOG should enjoy this documentary because of the interviews as well as all the stories.
