Overview

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.

This is one of those movies that you watch the trailer and you think that the movie looks good,but then you see it then it sucks. This remake is absoulutely horroble.

Today remakes have rarely any good reviews about them and I was wondering if this was going to be great,but it wasn't.The trailer made it seem to make this movie scary,but as I watched it in theaters I didn't jump alot and it was worst on dvd when I bought it and it doesn't compare to the first movie.It may go down as worst classic movie,but it did have some great scenes and good actors,but I recommended that you rent it before you buy it.

This remake is a useless update of the original. Not creepy at all like Carpenter's classic. This new version is a very cheap rip-off, a blatant attempt to cash in. If you're a fan of the original then you won't like this one at all. I didn't

"Nope" got it absolutely right. This is a useless remake and a total waste of time. It's just an excuse to have the poor actors in this film walk around in their underwear. I am sorry I rented it.
