The Region 1 (Special Edition) of this film includes some substantial extra features.
The Region 4 release misses out on:
- Additional 1.33:1 version of the film
- Original mono soundtrack
- Commentary track by John Carpenter and co-writer Debra Hill, recorded for the Laserdisc release in 1995, and which is apparently very good
- Tales from the Mist: The Fog documentary running for close to half an hour
- Fear on Film: Inside The Fog featurette running for around ten minutes
- Storyboard Comparison
- Behind the Scenes footage
- Original Trailers
- TV spots
The Region 1 release misses out on nothing.
The Region 1 release is the clear winner for those of you who wish to buy the film.
