The Fog (2005)
This horror is a remake of the original The Fog movie in 1980, and I can’t say how true it is as I have not seen it. However, as much as this film is passable to watch from beginning to end I don’t know if I can call this a horror. I mean sure, we have ghosts, deaths and plenty of things happening in the dark but I wasn’t scared. The thing I liked was learning about the past and the connections of who was being aimed at (by the ghost) and why 🙂 . The pace treaded along slowly and wasn’t the most entertaining. I did like the scene with the “boat party” though I do wish it had been done better. I was captivated when the child was being chased and when the “fog” was taking over the town 🙂 . There are a few plot holes and unanswered questions that should have been answered to make this more interesting. Such as, why does Nick need two love interests when I barely saw him in love with one of them? They never questioned Nick’s Uncle’s face (which was rotting) or the fact the ghosts “graffitied” a church. I though the ghosts were from 1800’s so why did they use spray cans?? The CGI is not very good but I did like the ghost ship in the night 🙂 . The characters are not very deep and are cliché of an early 2000’s horror (or any horror actually 😛 ). To be fair, I was entertained enough to watch to the end. Moments in this were promising, although the movie’s end could not save it. For as much I as I didn’t mind it, it was more of a ghost (and strange) romance movie than a horror which was quite predicable 😛 . This was a confusing plot that wasn’t very scary and I wished I had just watched the original. Enjoy 😀
I give this film 1.5 Stars out of 5!
