Runtime: 1 hour, 29 minutes
Strange things begin to occurs as a tiny California coastal town prepares to commemorate its centenary. Inanimate objects spring eerily to life; Rev. Malone stumbles upon a dark secret about the town's founding; radio announcer Stevie witnesses a mystical fire; and hitchhiker Elizabeth discovers the mutilated corpse of a fisherman. Then a mysterious iridescent fog descends upon the village, and more people start to die.

There's the potential romance between a local resident and a hitchhiker he picks up that is interrupted by having to investigate an abandoned ship; there's the radio DJ trying to take care of her son; and then there's the trio of the town's priest, town councillor and the councillor's assistant uncovering the horrible history behind the birth of the town.
The Fog looks pretty and has, again, very similar visual approach to Fulci's horror films.
The old one is low budget, simple FX (mainly fog machines and old-timey trick photography), dicey production values.a home-made movie that succeeds because, generally a ghost movie is better when you never see the ghost.
