Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Elderly Babysitter Death’ From ‘The Fog’ (1980)

There’s nothing worse than watching an old person bite the dust in a horror movie.  Well, there might be worse things actually, but old people dying in horror movies can really put a damper on an otherwise good day.  So on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, I’m paying tribute in a way to our favorite elderly babysitter from John Carpenter’s underrated classic, The Fog.  That’s right, come on up to the podium and say a few words, Mrs. Kobritz!

Ahhh, that’s right.  She can’t come up and say a few words because she got hacked to death by a bunch of zombie ghost pirates.  We can however, honor her memory and remember her for the brave, yet somewhat stupid, babysitter that she was.  Only out to protect Andy as she shooed him away to his room after a knock at the door, Mrs. Kobritz took her final steps out into the dense fog before being pounced on by the zombie ghost pirates.  Going out like a true babysitter soldier, Mrs. Kobritz will forever be a bright light in The Fog.  (cue up “Wing Beneath My Wings”)
