    The fog also does something genuinely eerie: It causes everyone in the cast to deliver dreadful performances and display inappropriate reactions when their friends are drowned, burned, stabbed or thrown into glass display cases. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    Director Rupert Wainwright fails to bring any style to the material, not producing a fraction of the suspense or wit generated by Carpenter in the original even while working with a far lesser budget. show more

    This new Fog floats in on the fumes of the 1980 John Carpenter original, but the surprise is that it's arguably better. show more

    Most of The Fog will seem drearily perfunctory even to those viewers who don't know Carpenter's version, which itself emulated the elegant gloom of Val Lewton's horror pics of the 1940s. show more

    Such a monumentally bad remake of such an exceptionally chilling genre favorite. show more

    Selma Blair, the one vibrant actress in a cast of colorless screamers (including Tom Welling from Smallville and Maggie Grace from Lost), takes Adrienne Barbeau's old role. show more

    It's virtually indiscernible from any other contemporary horror film except for, well, the fog. show more

    Don\'t waste your time on this one. It was laughable.
