The Fog’s original story is centered around a group of ancestors who feel betrayed by the town that has reaped all the benefits of their time as mariners without any consequences.
Carpenter, who serves as an executive producer and creative consultant on Halloween Kills, was asked about potential sequels to any of his films. The prolific director told NME that there’s been plenty of discussions about sequels to a number of his films. Carpenter went on to mention The Fog directly, saying that there’s been particular interest in a sequel to that film. Although Carpenter says that they haven’t come to fruition yet “for various reasons,” the director says he is open to the idea.
There’s been talk of a sequel to The Fog. There’s been talk of sequels for a bunch of my movies. They just haven’t happened yet because of various reasons. But yeah, we’ve talked about them and I’m open to them.
These sorts of themes could work well in a sequel and could highlight the ways in which the horror genre has always had socially conscious themes underneath the violence. It’s way too early to tell when The Fog sequel could even come out, but with Carpenter on board, hopefully it happens sooner rather than later
