    This new Fog floats in on the fumes of the 1980 John Carpenter original, but the surprise is that it's arguably better.
  2. The production values are above par, but as in Carpenter's original, seeing ghosts is less scary than imagining them.

    Nothing comes together after the first ten minutes.

    Most of The Fog will seem drearily perfunctory even to those viewers who don't know Carpenter's version, which itself emulated the elegant gloom of Val Lewton's horror pics of the 1940s.
  5. Less fun than "Cry_Wolf" and "Venom," if that's possible.

    I was held in suspense throughout The Fog, aching to learn the answer to its central riddle: Why would any one remake such a crummy movie?
  7. 0
    Such a monumentally bad remake of such an exceptionally chilling genre favorite.

    The movie industry has come up with some truly brilliant villains that shook our emotions and took over our nightmares. And then there's the rest of the pack, which are so laughable youâ Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is what happens when you take a simple, yet effective concept and stuff it full of loose ends, forced romance, political correction and lame special effects. Even the concept itself is entirely lost. Where did that ominous, glowing fog go that chased people through the streets in the original? In the first film, the settlers took advantage of the fog to lure Blake and his crew into a trap on the rocks, hence their symbolic return IN the fog. In this remake, their ship was raided and set on fire. Where's "The Fog" in that? Expand
