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.

The original "The Fog" was just a ghost story, and a good one, and I guess some people react to the changes in the remake in a negative way. But to me, the changes in the story and the plot make this 2005 remake a strong, enjoyable movie, with an open ending.
The original "The Fog" and the remake are two different movies, related but very different. I guess part of the negativity by some reviewers is a response to these differences between the two films.
The soundtrack by Graeme Revell is one of the best I have ever heard, with many layered atmospheric electronic sounds. At under 40 minutes this movie soundtrack comes in a little short on time, but not in the quality of the music.
a foggy night on the coast. :)
I don't like Horror films. And this certainly isn't. It isn't a lot of things. It is clearly something put together by different writers who clearly neither shared their notes or their purposes. The Character Elizabeth is an example of their chaos.
If they wanted to make a horror film, they should not have given the villeins human faces or humanity. Indeed I still can not decide who is the villiens. Is it the Ghosts of the lepers come back to wreack vengence upon the town whose honouring the founders who locked them away before setting fire to their ship? Is it the two obnoxious local politicians who are covering up the crime and making the founders into a tourist attraction? Is it the writers of this piece who wish to wreak vengence upon movie viewers by creating this work? They certainly didn't know what they were doing with Elizabeth.
If they wanted a Ghost Busters Flick they should have gone differently with the special effects which are the only thing good here. They had the characters.
It is a buckets of blood flick. A remake of a dreadful film.
It begins with a horrible crime. Then goes to a hundred years later and a fishing day. From there it goes along a confused and sordid path to nowhere believable. The local politicians are having a festiveal to fish for tourists and thier dollars. Eventually they get what many voters dream of doing to thier's. It has a lot of bucket of blood scenes rather not worth getting sick about. Elizabeth has strange flashbacks. We get to see an Elizabeth the leper of a hundred years ago who looks uncannilly like the one here and now. Somehow the crime is revealed to all in all the gory detail. We get to see Elizabeth the leper catch fire and drown. The town is a mess and looking for the Ghost Busters as the ghosts wreak their havoc in what could be a bad day. And Elizabeth disovers she's Casper. (She's the one from the ship burning and also wife to the lead dead leper).
In the end does anybody learn anything? The radio jockey sits with her kid calling for understanding while superboy pitches the evidence into the sea. (Does this mean there's a sequal for when the Lepers hear about that?)
Scenery is lovely.
