Audience Reviews for Footsteps in the Fog

Enjoyable Victorian drama about some very unscrupulous people. Sumptuous production values and Jean looks very beautiful.

Super Reviewer

Very dark, twisted tale about murder, blackmail and deception. Kept me on the edge of my seat until the end, though the pace is not fast or overdone. In fact, it's the subtlety that makes this film, along with great acting and storytelling.


Great Acting by Granger and Simmons, Chemistry between them is amazing. Star of it though had to be Simmons, her innocence that mixes with her insane motherly madness attraction to the character Stephen Lowry is amazing. Her paradox acting is so appealing.
