Tom Welling: The Fog
Have you ever been lost in the fog? Not only is it hard to see something, but when you do see, it is too late. The remake of The Fog was well done and it had some scary moments. Are you ready to watch a bunch of dead lepers come back for revenge?
As the mist creeps into Antonio Bay, so does the leper ghost of the past. These scary ghosts come to bring vengence upon the decendants responsible for their deaths. They all become unwitting victims as the fog fills the town. No one is more unwitting than bewildered and dumb Maggie Grace.
Maggie grace(TV'S "Lost") needs to take some medication in this movie! She clearly had some foggy thinking, one moment she was making sense and the next you want to choke her! You will get "LOST" with Maggie Grace in this film(Pun intended).
After she saw three people dead on a boat, she realizes something is wrong, she watches a video clearly demonstrating some crazy demonic fog behavior. She is having dreams about people burning up in the fire, and that she is dead underwater. Next she goes and talks to a priest and says, "There is something wrong isn't there?" What gave her the first clue? Is this a remake of "The Fog" or Clueless?
If you saw three dead people on a boat and watched a video where a knife magically flew through the air and killed someone, would you stick around? This girl stayed when anyone with an ounce of sense would run for their lives! Maggie Grace was the most annoying feebleminded character throughout the movie.
Tom Welling thought Maggie was a basketcase and he should have dumped her and went after Selma Blair(Hot Radio DJ Chick). Tom Welling does get lucky at the end of the movie, as Maggie Grace disappears into the mist with creepy dead leper man.
The filming was well done and there were some creepy looking leper ghost people. I thought the dead shadow look of the long-dead mariners was creepy and made the movie more entertaining. The effects with the fog looked great and the eerie mist produced a horrific sense of terror.
You will notice that the leper scenes on the boat could have been more disgusting. Maybe an eye ball could have fallen out of someone's head or maybe a hand rolling around on the boat deck. Even if a leper's head fell off, that would have been the icing on the cake!
Imagine Tom Welling with a superman's outfit driving like a mad crazed lunatic with Maggie Grace next to him and you have a winner! Seriously, this movie was not the worst and the acting was not the best, but it was creepy. You may discover, as I did that Tom Welling should stick to Smallville and stay away from fogville.
