A Review by Rocksolidus
Director- Debra Hill,
John Carpenter, Rupert
Cast-Tom Welling, Maggie Grace, Selma Blair, DeRay Davis, Kenneth Welsh
Rated PG-13 for violence, disturbing images and brief sexuality.
Running Time- 100 min.
A bit hazy, no pu...well actually there was a pun intended. Ha. Not many scary movies actually turn out
to be scary movies these days. The majority of them that actually happen to have an impact on the audience only relay the
feeling of a thriller, or storyline. Not true with The Fog.
A movie that can actually make a 18 yr. old jump, a movie that made a long time horror watcher get goose
pimples. Yes, you guessed it, The Fog.
My very first impression of the movie persisted up until the first few minutes of the movie, and my impression
wasn't pretty. I had not a scary movie in mind, I actually thought it was going to be a huge steam bath with a bunch of people
groping around for help, not true.
As with many of the scarry or horror movies nowadays, the cast definately needs to be rethought, because
the character development and chemestry was absolutely crap. like this.
Other than that, there aren't any overly developed special effects or anythign cheesy like that, just good
old scarry fun. There are definately other things that turn a viewer on to the film.
I love movies that have a sensible structure to them. This film definately goes way beyond scaring the audience,
but actual developes throughout in a very artistic manner. The movie utilizes flashbacks and forsight to actually throw off
the viewers, kind of like a detective novel, but not so user friendly.
Anyway, great scarry film of this age. Cast could be better, but I can't complain when I was mainly interested
in the beautiful female next to me. Other than that, great film.
-could've used a few more special effects
