Moviedrome Mondays: The Fog (1980) and Darkness in Tallinn (1993) (Mark Cousins intro)

First off, Happy 2022 to all of my dear readers 🙂 Now let us continue the second half of Series 8 of Moviedrome. This week’s Moviedrome Monday blog entry consists of two different films.

The Fog (1980)

I have posted a youtube video link below to Moviedrome presenter Mark Cousins introduction to master horror filmmaker John Carpenter’s 1980 supernatural gem The Fog. Readers can also read Cousins intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was January 4, 1998 (read here). Unlike Cousins (who appreciates the film with reservations), I love The Fog as much as I love just about all of Carpenter’s films. If any of you readers are interested, here is a list of my favorite John Carpenter films (read here).

Darkness in Tallinn (1993)

I have posted a youtube video link below to Moviedrome presenter Mark Cousins introduction to Finnish director Ilkka Jarvi-Laturi’s 1993 comedic thriller Darkness in Tallinn. Readers can also read Cousins intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was January 5, 1998 (read here). I have not seen this film so I can’t comment, but it does look interesting based on Cousins description of it.
