October 19, 2005
We're meant to be unsettled by digital spectres, reckless Mack trucks, and rotting old pirates who look every bit as terrifying as the guy on the Fisherman's Friend cold-lozenge box.

"We gotta go!" Poor Nick (Tom Welling) says this a few too many times in The 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.

Yes, there's "something in 'The Fog,'" all right. Another weekend of low box office proceeds and more dismal reviews for yet another unnecessary, poorly made remake.

Lock your doors. Bolt your windows. And for heaven's sake, stay away from the multiplex.

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?
October 17, 2005
The fog also does something genuinely eerie: It causes everyone in the cast to deliver dreadful performances and display inappropriate reactions when their friends are drowned, burned, stabbed or thrown into glass display cases.
October 17, 2005
Add one more to the list of unnecessary horror remakes.
October 17, 2005
It is all utterly formulaic and predictable, and there's not even a rooting interest in trying to figure out who might live and who might die.

A soggy ghost story wrapped in an aggressively swirling wall of mist.

It's typical of pic's adherence to rigid genre conventions that the very first victims are brazen hotties who are shown drinking, dancing and wearing revealing attire prior to their deaths.

This Fog lacks the one thing the original had -- originality -- but it qualifies as more than a mist opportunity.
October 17, 2005
It's atmospheric, but only in the literal sense.

Carl Sandburg once wrote that the fog comes on little cat feet. Director Rupert Wainwright's 'The Fog,' however, clomps around like an elephant in cement boots.

The Union of Fog Machine Operators can be proud of its contributions to this yawner.

...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.

proof that maybe even moviegoers should sue

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.
October 16, 2005
Hollywood is a remake junky and we're its enablers. How long before the studio system has a fatal overdose? The Fog could do it. Moviedom, you need help.
October 15, 2005
Irredeemably irresponsible.
