Chang’an Fog Monster is a 2020 Chinese period-set fantasy film about an ancient city attacked by unseen creatures that emerge from the deep fog. Also known as Fog Monster and Creature of the Mist

Directed by Lu Lei, the movie stars Luo Liqun, Cheng Qimeng, Li Bairong, Hu Dongqing, Yang Ming, Wang Pan, Liu Yuetao, Diaoye, Wu Shulin and Zhang Kun.

During the Tang Dynasty, Chang’an City was suddenly flooded by a thick fog, and everyone fled in panic. Xiao Cheng was guarding the weak prince and was trapped with the civilians, waiting for the fog to dissipate.

However, the thick fog did not disperse as expected, and the people who walked into the thick fog did not return. The sky-shaking monsters in the thick fog gradually revealed their hideous features. Xiao Cheng tried hard to protect Chang’an…

Chang’An Fog Monster has an already short running time of sixty-six minutes and nearly ten minutes are taken up by credits […] That turns out to be its saving grace as it means there is enough going on to keep the film from lapsing back into a festival of lousy dialogue. The CGI in Chang’An Fog Monster is surprisingly good for one of these films…” 3 out of 5, Voices from the Balcony

Chang’an Fog Monster was released in China on 8th December 2020. In June 2022, ITN Movies posted a trailer online so a US release is presumably imminent.
