John Carpenter not only directed his 1980 spooky pirate movie The Fog, he also personally soundtracked it. Is there no end to the man’s talents? Dramatic organs and creepy synth arpeggios do an admirable job of setting the tone. And it was remastered by erstwhile collaborator Alan Howarth. This double disc set on Silva Screen contains 20 minutes of music not previously released.

The Fog represents that place beyond life where all horror fanatics and newbies alike search for a glimpse into when that new fright flick plays. That clouded place no one is allowed to enter until they are dragged in kicking and screaming no longer able to warn others as to what they've seen. The music captures all of these things. It's ghostly essence drips from the notes in an utter honesty to what the film's atmosphere was smeared with; no more, no less. You can't dance to it but it's great for those still, quiet nights.
