If you want to be frightened, don't bother with this remake.

That John Carpenter, credited here as a producer, had a hand in diminishing his own legacy would be tragic if any of this mattered.

October 29, 2005
A pale remake of a 25-year-old horror film that wasn't all that memorable to begin with.
October 29, 2005
Either way, give it a week or two and it's a sure bet The Fog will already have disappeared from theaters along with the morning dew.
October 29, 2005
Like most remakes, The Fog is pretty unnecessary.
October 29, 2005
The acting is stilted and the direction clunky - not that the original was any masterpiece.

[It] pales in comparison to Carpenter's original fogbanks, some of which were created by optical effects nearly as ancient as filmmaking itself but still vastly more believable than anything seen in this absolutely dreadful and just plain dull remake.
October 29, 2005
There's no good reason for another rendition of John Carpenter's 1980 film about the ghosts of drowned lepers seeking revenge on the inhabitants of a seaside California town.

Mildly scary here and there.

Making concessions at every turn to the youth-horror market, the film slashes the ages of its protagonists by some 15 years, and its IQ follows suit.
October 25, 2005
It seems to set a record for the quantity of shock moments that involve either a pane of glass breaking or something catching fire.
October 22, 2005
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.
October 21, 2005
Mold-covered clichs are the most frightening things in The Fog.
October 21, 2005
Although it's rehash, it's not that bad...wait to rent it.
October 20, 2005
Even foggier than the disappointing original.
October 20, 2005
A film riddled with missed opportunities for good clean scares.
October 20, 2005
You may jump and wince a couple of times, but only because the soundtrack features a few loud bangs that are cranked up beyond pain threshold.
October 20, 2005
Simply, irredeemably, insufferably boring -- the one thing a horror picture just can't survive.
