The Fog Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Fog is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory imprint Scream Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. Cinematographer Dean Cundey supervised this new high definition transfer and the results are largely laudatory if one understands a few things about the original film and its look. The Fog was not luxuriously budgeted to begin with; as Debra Hill clearly states in her commentary, the film's principal photography was completed for less than $1 million, a paltry sum even in 1980, with an additional couple of hundred thousand added for reshoots after the first screenings didn't go very well. As Hill and Carpenter also discuss in their commentary, at least some of the film was shot under less than ideal circumstances, with natural (almost nonexistent) lighting sources and on the fly framings. Most importantly, many if not most of the special effects are opticals, a technique that in and of itself frequently adds dirt, grain and softness. Therefore, anyone expecting The Fog to offer a pristine, digitally pure, appearance are simply not being realistic. This new edition of The Fog features much better saturated color than previous versions (including the region free Blu-ray from a few years ago), and I personally noted no egregiously tweaked color grading that has stirred up a storm on some forums (including ours here at Blu-ray.com). Grain is completely intact, and in fact is rather overwhelming in some darker scenes, and there is also a minimal amount of damage to be seen in isolated moments. The inadequate lighting situations do result in some unavoidable loss of shadow detail and outright crush on more than one occasion, but these are endemic to the source and not a fault of the transfer. Overall, though, the image is reasonably sharp and well detailed and is certainly head and shoulders above previous versions on home video.


The Fog Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Fog features a repurposed lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround mix as well as the original mono mix delivered via DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. The 5.1 mix is not overly aggressive and so prefers a lot of the charm of the original mix while subtly opening things up, especially with regard to Carpenter's synth drenched score and at times some of the spooky foley effects. Fidelity is strong, though a little boxy sounding at times (my hunch is swaths of this film were post- looped), Dynamic range is very wide.
