Dan O'Bannon (The Fog).gif

Dan O'Bannon, played by Charlie Cyphers, is a character in the 1980 film The Fog.

Dan is the local weather man. He calls DJ Stevie Wayne at the radio station to tell her that a fog bank has appeared and is moving towards town. As they are talking, the fog gathers outside the weather station and Dan hears a knock at the door. He answers it and is killed by the revenants as Stevie listens in horror.

As Stevie proceeds with her radio show, the fog starts moving inland, disrupting the town's telephone and power lines. Using a backup generator, Stevie begs her listeners to go to her house and save her son when she sees the fog closing in from her lighthouse vantage point. As the fog envelops Stevie's house, the revenants kill her son's babysitter, Mrs. Kobritz. They then pursue Andy, but Nick Castle arrives and rescues him.
