The foggy bottom boys are back and kicking up quite a fuss in The Fog, a fright-filled remake of John Carpenter's 1980 horror thriller.
| Original Score: 3/4

Although it's rehash, it's not that bad...wait to rent it.

It's rather refreshing to encounter an almost quaintly retro thriller that depends more on tension and suggestion than on gross-out effects.

These studios just don't know when to quit while they're ahead.
January 15, 2008
A boorishly bland supernatural action thriller.
August 16, 2007
Never will you wish more fervently for an Adrienne Barbeau cameo, just for old time's sake. Your prayers will be in vain.
July 14, 2007
Even the geography of the film doesn't seem to make sense.

July 6, 2007
So concerned is the film with contriving at least one gratuitous jump-fright every five minutes that elements like character and story soon become lost in the fog.

March 6, 2007
The production values are above par, but as in Carpenter's original, seeing ghosts is less scary than imagining them.

June 24, 2006
Yet another anaemic horror retread starring a cast of good-looking TV totty.
May 12, 2006
A lousy remake of a not-so-good John Carpenter film.

Don't be afraid.

March 11, 2006
With dialogue as dorky as the words new screenwriter Cooper Lane stuffed in their mouths, none of the hapless cast members could have sounded convincing.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

If you are a fan of the original film, this remake might interest you. It's not badly made. But why was it made at all?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

...the latest in a long line of needless horror remakes..
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

The actors do their best, under the circumstances. Welling makes an engaging lead and Grace employs her trademarked wounded, fragile look (that serves her so well in Lost) to good effect and wanders around in her underwear a lot.

February 22, 2006
A mediocre remake of a 1980s horror movie of the same name which wasn't that good to begin with.
February 14, 2006
Another remake bites the dust.

February 3, 2006
A dull, stupid, boring picture, inferior in every way to the John Carpenter film it remakes, but it's bad for the same reason a lot of effects-driven movies are bad.
