Blank Check with Griffin and David Wiki

The Fog is episode 339 focusing on the 1980 film of the same name and part of the They Podcast miniseries on the films of John Carpenter. Posted August 29, 2021.


A film brave enough to ask the question - what if there was fog? Just kidding - this movie is ACTUALLY about vengeful pirate ghosts and a lady with a sexy radio voice. CANDYMAN’s Nia DaCosta returns to the pod to ask whether or not fog is scary if you aren’t driving through it. Producer Ben wonders if the titular fog should have had a voice. Plus, we explore the history of spooky lighthouse movies. [1]
