Product Description

Horror based on the 1980 John Carpenter movie. Exactly one hundred years ago, off the rocky shore of an isolated Northern California town, a ship of lepers seeking refuge is betrayed by the town's founding fathers and burned, killing everyone aboard. Now the ghosts of the long-dead mariners have returned from their watery graves to exact revenge. Shrouded within a supernatural fog, the ghosts trap the residents of the remote community, intent on seeking out the descendants of those who founded the town, and killing anyone who stands in their murderous path.

From Amazon.co.uk

As remakes go, The Fog has some grisly deaths that gore-mongers will appreciate, and star billing for Tom Welling is guaranteed to attract younger views and Smallville fans; however, the movie will have most horror buffs thinking fondly of John Carpenter's original. A combination of ghost story and slasher thriller, it's a typical example of why remakes are a risky endeavor, especially since the 1980 film does not rank with Carpenter's best. This time, residents of the seaside community of Antonio Island, Oregon, are falling prey to deadly specters that emerge from a spooky fog and are seeking revenge for one of the town's darkest secrets. As the body count rises, Selma Blair livens up this otherwise lukewarm horror pic in the role originated by Adrienne Barbeau, and genre buffs will enjoy in-jokes that refer to the original film and Carpenter's career in general (including one character named "Nick Castle," a reference to one of Carpenter's closest collaborators and fellow directors). Unfortunately, the film's also lost in its own fog of narrative confusion and lack of casting chemistry, but that shouldn't stop die-hard horror fans from checking it out. --Jeff Shannon

Ew. Well what do we have here? (I don't think that I bought this DVD from Amazon) I'm a fan of Selma Blair but not even her talents can keep this drivel from sinking without a trace. That having been said / typed, it DID make me jump. And I'm a remake whore but this remake didn't move me. Maggie Grace wasn't even a patch (?) on Jamie Lee Curtis. I cannot recommend this film to anyone. It's not as abhorrent as those 'films' about so-called singers. But it's also fairly painful viewing. The poor cast, you can't help but feel sorry for them. There's nothing good about the film. It's not the worst film ever made but it falls devastatingly short of the original. I'm not sure why I purchased it now but I warn you against buying. Horrible, horrible film. Oh and another thing, why hire actresses who don't, or can't, scream? For a good horror remake I recommend When a Stranger Calls.

As a fan of the Fog I was intersted in what original director John Carpenter and producer the late Debra Hill were doing re-making their own film. What a mess of a movie. In the original Adrienne Barbeau is excellent as the single mum/radio station owner. Jamie Lee Curtis is well cast as is her mother Janet Leigh. The cast in this mess look like teen Baywatch rejects. The music in the original by Carpenter himself brought suspense,tension and a murky sense of forboding. This nonsense is like a pop promo gone wrong.Avoid this film like the plague.I agree with the other reviewer who was reluctant to give this film one star.

Just bloody awful. No words come close to saying how bad this re-make is. The 1980 original is my all-time favourite film. And even though they could never do something as good again, they could have at least tried to make it work. This film makes not a lick of sense. The writer and director have taken the bits they thought worked in the original and added absolute nonsense to the a story that worked fine without the tinkering. Unnecessary 'flash-backs', all the main characters are under 25, Slema Blair's voice and 'devil-may-care' attitude so bloody annoying that if she was on the radio, you'd simply switch it off! A revenge story that suddenly turns into a love story. A creepy old crazy guy warning of things to come, much like in the Friday 13th series! This film has nothing to save it.

Every actor in this version is a disgrace. In fact, the best actor was the dead dog! Maggie Grace walking around in her pants is the only bit worth watching, and even that falls short of Tom Atkins in his vest from the first film.

Please DON'T waste your money on this. It is BAD! If you want to see serious "Fog" rather than second hand cigarette smoke then go for John Carpenters original. Buy this and regret it.

After watching the original many years ago, i was interested to watch this remake.....what a mistake!!!
The film was very boring and the ending just didn't make any sense. By the end of this rubbish i ejected the dvd and in a fit of rage i snapped the dvd in two and threw it in the bin so no one else in my household would be subject to such trash.

Although not considered by many as one of John Carpenter's best, The Fog has always had a soft spot for me. From the opening 'ghost story' prologue on the beach, to the wonderful locations in and around Point Reyes Lighthouse, to the great characterisation of such a simple little tale, this was a great story.

It's retelling couldn't have been worse, though. The story has been mangled, the characterisation is rubbish, and the whole thing has no scare appeal at all.

Avoid like the plague (sic!) Buy the original, it's a horror movie in the old style that bears out repeated viewing.

Frankly, I don't think there was anything wrong with the original. There is, however, a lot wrong with this remake. There is no segue or flow to it, no connections are established between the characters. No explanation of the reason for most of what happens, particularly the fate of Elizabeth.

There is no foreshadowing, no build up, no suspense, and little to make the viewer care about the characters and whether they live or die. Everything that made the original a tight, well paced narrative is missing from this film.

Even if you prefer modern cgi effects to what they used back in the day, they cannot save a(ny) film from a poor script.

Watch the original instead.
