Well, remember what all Jack Burton says, “ScreenRun is back with a new episode and we’re talkin’ to whoever’s listenin’ out there.”

The ghost/revenge story of a doomed ship full of ill folks desperate to find a place to settle, and the townsfolk that done them wrong. While the film didn’t repeat the runaway success of his prior film, ‘The Fog’ was a hit and to this day carries a warm, wet, sea-faring affection for its fans and has become a cult classic. 40+ years later, how does this deceptively simple ghost story hold up?
