John Carpenter's 'The Fog' Heads to Disc

Scream Factory announces the release of John Carpenter’s iconic thriller, “The Fog,” on DVD and Blu-ray July 30.


This summer, blood-curdling terror awaits loyal fans and movie collectors as Scream Factory announces the release of the iconic 1980 supernatural thriller The Fog Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and DVD on July 30, 2013. Directed by legendary filmmaker John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing), this spooky and atmospheric tale of a Northern California coastal town under siege by dead souls back for revenge is highly regarded by both fans and critics as one of the true classics of the horror genre. Boasting an all-star cast that includes Adrienne Barbeau (Creepshow), Jamie Lee Curtis (True Lies), Janet Leigh (Psycho), Tom Atkins (Halloween III), John Houseman (The Paper Chase), and Hal Holbrook (Lincoln), The Fog is a nail-biting ghost story experience that you will never forget!

For the first time on Blu-ray, this definitive collector’s edition home entertainment release of The Fog features a new transfer of the film supervised by Oscar-nominated cinematographer Dean Cundey (Jurassic Park, Back to the Future). Presented in anamorphic widescreen, The Fog Collector’s Edition is packed with bonus content, a collectible cover featuring newly rendered retro-style artwork and a reversible wrap with original theatrical key art! The Fog Collector’s Edition Blu-ray has a suggested retail price of $29.93 and $19.93 for the DVD. 

Avid fans and collectors please take note: those who order The Fog Collector’s Edition from will receive the exclusive 18”x24” poster featuring the newly commissioned artwork! Only 500 posters will be printed, so these are only available while supplies last.

Also adding to Scream Factory’s killer summer slate, Scream Factory invites collectors to dive into 70s gooey cult classic The Incredible Melting Man, debuting on Blu-ray for the first time on July 30, 2013. Featuring “excellent makeup effects” (Leonard Maltin) from six-time Best Makeup Oscar winner Rick Baker (An American Werewolf In London, Ed Wood, Men In Black) and written and directed by William Sachs (Galaxina, Exterminator 2), The Incredible Melting Man delivers the gelatinous goods while humanizing a character rapidly losing his humanity. In short: it’s bloody good!
