Episode 56: The Stranger Things in The Fog – August 20th, 2016
What you can’t see won’t hurt you… it’ll kill you!
Welcome back to the Horror 101 Podcast. Come with us as we voyage to a cursed place. After hitting the John Carpenter show in Michigan, Cash learns his colleagues have never seen Carpenter’s The Fog from 1980. The sacrilege! We’re going to remedy that tonight and showcase this maritime ghost story. Light on gore and big on atmosphere, The Fog is one of the best ghost stories ever committed to celluloid. When the clipper ship Elizabeth Dane is purposefully run aground and her crew of Lepers murdered for their gold the descendants of these perpetrators will pay for their crimes 100 years later as the cozy coastal town of Antonio Bay celebrates its centennial. Its sweet ghostly revenge. We’ll cover our experience at The Carpenter show and our love affair with the 80s inspired Netflix series Stranger Things. Join us as we give the Horror 101 treatment to another Carpenter Classic!
