The Fog
The Fog (2005)

A thick fog enshrouds a coastal town. The fog is reminiscent of one 100 years earlier that wrecked a ship and drowned the seamen aboard. Sure enough, the sailors are back and out to kill whomever they find.

Consensus: The Fog is a so-so remake of a so-so movie, lacking scares, suspense or originality.

Time Out

Never will you wish more fervently for an Adrienne Barbeau cameo, just for old time's sake. Your prayers will be in vain.

Anita Gates

Cinema Crazed

These studios just don't know when to quit while they're ahead.

Time Out

Yet another anaemic horror retread starring a cast of good-looking TV totty.

Village Voice

Making concessions at every turn to the youth-horror market, the film slashes the ages of its protagonists by some 15 years, and its IQ follows suit.

Joe Lozito
Big Picture Big Sound

Even the geography of the film doesn't seem to make sense.
