From producer John Carpenter comes the all-new retelling of his terror classic, The Fog. Tom Welling (TV's "Smallville"), Maggie Grace (TV's "Lost") and Selma Blair (Hellboy) star in this senses-shattering tale of demonic retribution, directed by Rupert Wainwright (Stigmata) and written by Cooper Layne. Trapped within an eerie mist, the residents of Antonio Bay have become the unwitting victims of a horrifying vengeance. One hundred years ago, a ship carrying lepers was purposely lured onto the rocky coastline and sunk, drowning all aboard. Now they're back, long-dead mariners who've waited a century for their revenge. Seeking out the decendents of those responsible for their deaths, they lurk enshrouded within a supernatural fog of terror. Beware, any and all who stand in their way.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The Fog is a so-so remake of a so-so movie, lacking scares, suspense or originality.
Never will you wish more fervently for an Adrienne Barbeau cameo, just for old time's sake. Your prayers will be in vain.

Lame remake of 1980 horror movie.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this horror movie includes several jump scenes, lots of spooky darkness, and ghosts. None of these are especially effective, but as they are accompanied by a pushy soundtrack, they might make some viewers start. Characters drink, smoke, and make lewd comments; girls in bikinis dance provocatively for a young man with a video camera; and a pretty girl in her underwear is troubled by ghosts in a dark house. A young couple showers together (close-ups of golden wet body surfaces, not particularly explicit) and then has sex, in similar soft golden light and facial close-ups. Victims in flashback scenes are lepers, and their faces are disfigured; their ghost versions are skeletal and ghastly. Violence is mostly penetrative, by glass shards and knives (one character is stabbed in his eyes). Characters are also drowned or nearly drowned; a car tumbles off a cliff into the sea; the fog seeps and creeps; buildings, ships, and bodies burn; and one of the ghosts keeps pounding thunderously on doors.
