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.

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.

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.

For a description of the plot, etc., read other reviews. Just some thoughts on this remade disaster from 2005...

Actually, just watch the original version of The Fog (1980), or read the good reviews that have been written if you want to know all about this movie. But anyway...

John Carpenter has said over the years that he was never happy with his 1980 movie The Fog. So, he actually welcomed a remake and was even involved in the project as a producer along with Debra Hill. The end result was a total disaster. The remake was turned into a typical teen horror film complete with (you guessed it) tons of CGI. It's just a typical current day horror film where a bunch of kids you don't care about meet their demise. The movie lacks everything a good horror movie needs.

Steer clear of this train wreck of a movie. It is one of the worst horror movie remakes of all time. In fact, steer clear of 98% of the horror movie remakes out there. They can't compare to the original movies.

but you have no idea.

Here's the thing ... sometimes a low-budget forces a director to be more creative. Carpenter's Halloween was made on a shoe-string budget of $325,000 ($1,111,914 today) and The Fog was granted only one-million ($2,677,633 today). That's not much for a film. And Carpenter crafted a work which has scarred horror-enthusiasts for life ... who among us can drive into a fog-bank and not think, "Here's where the hook smashes through my windshield."

Wainwright was given a staggering $18,0000 to shoot this remake ... but where did it go? On television-star Tom Welling? Or television-star Maggie Grace? Or television-star Sara Botsford? No, that can't be right ... they are TELEVISION stars! And, how that small-screen quasi-talent translates to the big-screen ... as quasi-talent. And, am I the only one who noticed that many of Wainwright's actors appeared in "Smallville" ... way to reach!

As far the writing is concerned, I do not want to have any more back-story in my remakes (actually, I DO NOT WANT any more remakes). I do not care that Leatherface had a debilitating skin-condition (thanks for that Marcus Nispel), and I don't care that Michael Myers had a tormented childhood (thanks for that Rob Zombie) and really don't care about this long, protracted expansion of the leper-story. Who cares?! In fact, as Hooper and Carpenter know ... the less back-story the audience receives, the more frightening the film! With a scant back-story, we are only left to wonder how these things happen ... could they happen to us?
