The cast gave a lack luster performance in the remake of my all time favorite horror movie. I went into this one with a jaded hopefulness that they would not destroy a John Carpenter classic especially one with such an amazing cast that included Janet Leigh, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Adrienne Barbeau.
Two generations of scream queens with John Carpenter backing them is almost a horror fan's daydream.
It is the one movie my playful remake nemesis Vince Liaguno and I were able to agree on. He holds the original as his all time favorite too.
If you fall asleep during the movie don't fret. It mostly deals with the reason the Fog and the ghost ship "The Elizabeth Dane" is out for blood. The only decent scene in the movie is the last five minutes in which Maggie Grace's character reveals her true nature.
This DVD is also in the remake collection contest and so far this is one that I will definitely miss the least.
