Horror remakes like this one paint all the others with a huge and objectionable brush, because this flick absolutely stinks of half-hearted effort and assembly-line cynicism.

The acting is stilted and the direction clunky - not that the original was any masterpiece.

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.

Wainwright's Fog proves successful only at blowing.

A boorishly bland supernatural action thriller.

It's atmospheric, but only in the literal sense.

A lousy remake of a not-so-good John Carpenter film.

The Fog is a bore, laden with unspectacular special effects and dreadful acting from television-trained youth who don't have the experience to truly deliver the goods.

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?

Like most remakes, The Fog is pretty unnecessary.

...enduring The Fog is like trying to swim effortlessly through a giant bowl of dripping and sticky pea soup-it's messy and just as pointless.

Who knows? Maybe if we ignore these pointless remakes enough, pretty soon they'll all go away.

These studios just don't know when to quit while they're ahead.

Even the geography of the film doesn't seem to make sense.

Best-viewed through actual fog.

It attempts to apply too much logic to the events going on that it distracts the viewer from pleasure and replaces it with boredom.

A movie where everyone's last breath ends in a scream. Where is Adrienne Barbeau when we need her?

Like watching a cut-rate Roger Corman rip-off of a big Hollywood film, only the tables are ironically turned. The big budget studio version seems pale in comparison.
