Limited double vinyl LP pressing. Original soundtrack to the 1980 motion picture. This release includes the original movie score along with a bonus vinyl including all of the original movie cues which have never been made available on vinyl before. The Fog was John Carpenter's first film after the low-budget success of Halloween. Like most of Carpenter's films, the score was written by the director himself, and built on the more simplistic piano melody and synthesizer combination of the iconic Halloween score, to create something much more abstract and foreboding. Album cover art is by Dinos Chapman - yes the Dinos Chapman : as an internationally renowned solo artist. While the film was released in 1980, this soundtrack was not officially released until four years later.
