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

By Frank Scheck
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.

It's too mediocre (and PG-13) to be classified as a horror film, too inane to be taken seriously and too uninteresting to be bothered with.
