  • Excerpt: I cannot for the life of me understand why I have never seen this film. I'm a huge Halloween/Escape From New York/The Thing fan, but this one always flew under the radar. So, I did a blind buy of the Shout Factory disc and I can enthusiastically recommend this movie. I absolutely loved the cinematography and locations of the film. The sequence where Barbeau drives to the lighthouse and walks down the long staircase are fabulous.

  • Excerpt: I just watched the fog and here is the truth. thank god Dean Cundy did the restoration because this transfer blows away the special edition DVD that MGM released over 10 years ago! there is no way scream factory would of done this good of a job if Dean Cundy did not step in and say either i do the restoration or forget about releasing it on bluray.I really think Dean Cundy saw the Halloween 3 bluray and was horrified by the excessive use of Digital noise reduction and...

An Underrated Classic

  • Excerpt: First off, I haven't seen The Fog since the days of VHS/Betamax, and I never saw it in the theater. Second, I don't watch my blu-ray movies hunting for problems. I watch them to enjoy them. If something jumps out at me that sucks or looks awesome, then my brain disengages from the film all on its own to notice the difference. That said, I had a good time revisiting this film and never once was pulled out of it for audio or video issues.

Shout Factory blew it.

  • Excerpt: They should change the title of this Blu-ray edition from "The Fog" to "The Grain". The video presentation is pretty bad, actually downright awful. The majority of the darker scenes are riddled with so much film grain to the point that it is unwatchable, I barely made it through one viewing. I won't be adding this fiasco to my collection. If any movie needed DNR processing, this is it! There you go, I said it, those bad three letters, the dreaded DNR.

. . .look for The Fog

  • Excerpt: I'm not sure why some of the Blu Ray reviews on this site seem to love certain cliched phrases, but the over-all review for The Fog uses one of them that I simply cannot stand. When did the term "cheesy" become synonymous with something bad? I love films, especially horror, and would never use such a term to describe even the worst of effects, acting, etc. I find it way off the mark.

  • Excerpt: Wat een prachtig verhaal. IJzingwekkend. Weinig horrorverhalen bezitten zo een goed verhaal. De film blijft boeien van begin tot het eind. Hier en daar zelfs ontroerend. Deze film is echt een aanrader. Zelfs de heerlijke schrikeffecten ontbreken niet. DUS KIJKEN!!!!

  • Excerpt: Echt een geweldige spannende horror, met een goed geschreven verhaal. Tom Welling (Nick) en Maggie Grace (Elisabeth) zetten hun rol goed neer, samen vond ik ze qua acteren een sterk duo. Maggie Grace kennen we ook van de tv serie "Lost". Het verhaal is goed te volgen, de scènes zijn mooi in beeld gebracht.

  • Excerpt: Redelijke re-make van John Carpenters 'The Fog' uit 1980. Natuurlijk zijn de visual / special effects in deze versie van 2005 veel beter. Anders gezegd: die zien er gewoon heel goed uit. Qua verhaallijn heeft deze re-make ook een behoorlijke make-over genoten, maar dit is niet direct een minpunt. Verder zijn de acteerprestaties van onze hoofdrolspelers wat mij betreft ook in orde.

  • Excerpt: Erg spannend en een goed verhaal. De meeste horrors bezitten weinig tot geen verhaallijn, maar deze film is erg goed in elkaar gezet. Credits voor het goede acteerwerk van deze jonge talenten. Dus bij deze: kijken deze film! Als je tenminste van een goed verhaal houdt en tegen een beetje schrikeffecten kan! Filmrating: 8/10.
