    The Fog
    John Carpenter's well-remembered thriller gets an update in this remake from director Rupert Wainwright. Nick Castle (Tom Welling) is a charter-boat captain in the small coastal town of Antonio Bay. Castle's ancestors helped to found Antonio Bay, but while the city's mayor (Kenneth Welsh) and the head of the local historical society (Sara Botsford) are spearheading an effort to raise money for a statue that would honor the city fathers, Castle is more interested in seeing the town's rickety docks and aging sea wall replaced. However, Castle has been too distracted with personal matters to wage a campaign of his own -- he's been having an affair with Stevie Wayne (Selma Blair), a single mom who runs a combination radio station and lighthouse, while his former flame Elizabeth Williams (Maggie Grace) has returned to town to mend fences with her mother and finds herself renewing her romance with Castle. One night, Castle and his first mate, Brett Spooner (DeRay Davis), discover an antique ship's bag filled with treasure, not knowing the salvage came from a ship that sank over a hundred years before. As it happens, there's a terrible secret behind the ship's disastrous fate, and now that Castle and Davis have unwittingly awakened the watery grave, the souls of the ship's crew and passengers have come back to claim their revenge in the form of a thick and impenetrable fog. The remake of The Fog proved to be one of the last projects for producer Debra Hill, who also worked on the original film; Hill was fighting cancer when work began on the film, and she died shortly before filming commenced. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Decent remake!


      My wife and I just watched this and we enjoyed it. It was comparable to the first one, (John Carpenter saw to that.) The acting wasn't very good though, the movie was rather slow, and the ending was pretty lame. I'm a fan of remakes, but this one could've been better. I still recommend it, because the sound and special effects were good and there's some good creepy scenes. If you want a good remake, some I recommend are Halloween 1 & 2, Last House on the Left, Black X-mas, Friday the 13th, and My Bloody Valentine 3D.

      another unnecessary remake


      Like other recent remakes, this one is basically a regurgitation for the MTV age, hence the casting of Smallville's Superman (Tom Welling) as the male lead. Although an intriguing casting choice, Selma Blair fails to bring the zing that Adrienne Barbeau brought to the original. The CGI here continues the downfall of the form which began with Jar Jar. The ending, likewise, is unbelievably dumb.

      Not so good


      this is a wannabe horror/thriller movie. It's kind of a ripoff of the stephen king book and at the same time, pirates of the carribean.

      Absolutely pathetic...


      Do yourself a favor and watch the original. John Carpenter's the Fog blows this pathetic film away. Even the music is a disappointment.
