Editorial Reviews

From producer John Carpenter comes the all-new retelling of his terror classic, The Fog. Tom Welling (TV's Smallville), Maggie Grace (TV's Lost) and Selma Blair (Hellboy) star in this senses-shattering tale of demonic retribution, directed by Rupert Wainwright (Stigmata) and written by Cooper Layne. Trapped within an eerie mist, the residents of Antonio Bay have become the unwitting victims of a horrifying vengeance. One hundred years ago, a ship carrying lepers was purposely lured onto the rocky coastline and sunk, drowning all aboard. Now they're back, long-dead mariners who've waited a century for their revenge. Seeking out the decendents of those reponsible for their deaths, they lurk enshrouded within a supernatural fog of terror. Beware, any and all who stand in their way.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just plain bad January 6, 2006
Format:DVD
Of all the horror remakes over the past few years, I honestly thought that no one would ever dare to remake John Carpenter's the Fog. The original Fog, which starred Adrianne Barbeau, Jamie Lee Curtis, Janet Leigh, and Hal Holbrook, failed at the box office but was regarded as a cult classic and one of Carpenter's best thanks to the ultra eerie atmosphere and sense of dread. This remake, directed by Stigmata director Rupert Wainwright, is not only beyond bad, it's abysmal. The eerie atmosphere and sense of dread are replaced with attractive stars (Smallville's Tom Welling and Lost's Maggie Grace, along with Selma Blair in Barbeau's role) to go with an incomprehensible storyline that has little to do with that of the original, and an ending that isn't just mind boggling and non-sensical, it's just plain ridiculous. I never thought that a cult classic like Carpenter's original Fog would ever be remade as a PG-13 crud-fest like this, but I shouldn't be surprised at all these days. All in all, if you're a fan of the original film, then you already know to avoid this like the plague, because no matter how "Unrated" it can be, it can't come close to being scary or as good as the original.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful January 21, 2008
Format:DVD
Nothing works in this remake. It's not scary, the dialogs are dumb, the characters are flat. The "twist" in the end is simply laughable. It's the kind of film you go hide under the sheets... because you're ashamed. Skip it.

2.0 out of 5 stars "What kind of fog goes against the wind? " January 23, 2006
Format:DVD
I've since come to accept Hollywood's re-cycling tendencies, whether it's schlepping out remake after stinking remake, or turning any halfway decent 1970s television series in to a big budget flops no one wants to see. I've consigned myself to the notion that originality really isn't a viable commodity in tinsletown, and hasn't been for a while. Despite this understanding, I still find myself resentful when someone takes an extremely solid past production, dissembles it, forgets how to put it back together, slaps a `hip', MTV spin on it, ultimately turning it into a barely watchable, incoherent exercise of ineptitude as was done with The Fog (2005), a remake of a John Carpenter film release some 25 years earlier. This new version, written by Cooper Layne (The Core), and directed by Rupert Wainwright (Stigmata), stars Tom Welling ("Smallville"), Maggie Grace ("Lost"), and Selma Blair (Storytelling, Legally Blonde, Hellboy). Also appearing is DeRay Davis (Barbershop, Scary Movie 4), Kenneth Welsh (The Day After Tomorrow, The Exorcism of Emily Rose), Adrian Hough (In the Land of Women), Sara Botsford (Tremors 4: The Legend Begins), and Rade Serbedzija (The Saint, Mission: Impossible II), whom I best remember as the character Boris 'The Blade', from the film Snatch (2000).

As the movie opens we're on an old timey sailing ship (a clipper), and a fire breaks out, as an lamp full of oil is dropped. Amongst the flaming mayhem, four men escape via a rowboat, but not all make it to shore...fast forward to the present (I'm pretty sure it's the present, given the lousy rock music) and we meet various inhabitants of Antonio Island, which, by the way, is gearing up for some sort of founder's day celebration.

I can't believe I wasted $8.00 watching this movie. I have only myself to blame, since I was foolish enough to go and see how they would change the original story. Well, it was as bad as I expected it to be. THE FOG has little in common with the original classic except the premise: ghosts rising from the sea to wreak vengeance upon a small town for crimes committed a century ago. Otherwise, this film was an abomination. For example:

1)the original began with an old fisherman telling the story of the Elizabeth Dane to children around a roaring campfire. The remake began with the ship set on fire by the founders, thus eliminating the mystery.

2)Father Malone read his grandfather's journal to tell the audience the truth about the founding of the town and the curse that was about to descend upon its citizens. In the remake,

we learn the truth from Elizabeth's dreams. The journal is included as a token gesture to the original, and Father Malone is all but ignored.

3) The computer-generated images of the fog and the ghosts did not frighten me. John Carpenter and Debra Hill made the fog in the original seem alive as well as menacing.

4) the cast was no different than those of films we have seen since SCREAM was released. Not one actor delivered a convincing let alone a good performance. The original had talented actors

like John Houseman, Janet Leigh, Hal Holbrook, and Jamie Lee Curtis. All of whom performed admirably.

5) the director proved incapable of creating a scary movie. Then again, only a fool would dare to improve upon a horror film made by John Carpenter.

6) the ending defied logic. In the original the ghosts returned to punish Father Malone.

1.0 out of 5 stars Aaaargh...I roll me eyes in disgust, matey February 21, 2008
Format:DVD
If their goal in 2005 was to remake a decent, creepy ghost movie from 1980 and make it incredibly boring and stupid, then they have a huge success here.
Granted, John Carpenter's "The Fog" (the original) may not be as good as Robert Wise's "The Haunting" (1963) or Alejandro Amenabar's "The Others" (2001)... but I like it. It's a fun film to watch because it works. The story/screenplay, the music, and the performances seem to blend well and create a fun macabre movie.

The creators of Halloween (1978) needed to follow up that project with something else, and they chose a more traditional and gothic tale of supernatural horror. They could have gone the 'teens stalked by slasher' route again. It's good that they didn't. (Of course they would do that again in the Halloween sequel. With the success of the first movie who could blame them?)

This version of The Fog is not fun like the original, nor is it in any way truly scary... even though it is obvious that the director and screenwriter probably felt that they made a frightening flick. Well, they didn't. They use all the typical, tried-and-false methods that we expect from horror films. Give us something unexpected instead of this nonsense! Life is brief and I am tired of wasting time on shoddy movies that stink.

And they altered the story significantly, for the worse. Why tamper with something that was fine?
At least the original film had an atmosphere of impending dread and creepiness (and a very effective score by Mr. Carpenter). But Hollywood cannot leave well enough alone. Sometimes I think that there ought to be a law against remakes. Rarely does this concept succeed.
