The Fog (2005) – IMDb

A remake of John Carpenter’s 1980 classic. There are a number of differences between this one and the original, while still incorporating a lot of the basic storyline elements – of course that’s likely because Carpenter himself was involved in the play writing.

The one thing I kind of miss about the the original was the sense of mystery behind the “why”. To me this was a huge part of the original movie, but of course being a remake you have to expect them to take a different route.

For me this is an easy one – a good rewatch, interesting story, the effects aren’t exactly the best, but good enough to enjoy. So a good 3 bloody kitties!
