Movie Review: "The Fog" (1980) vs. "The Fog" (2005)

Today, we are here with another installment in our series, FEATURE FILM FACE-OFF! In this series, we take two movies and pit them against each other in a battle for the ages! We break down each film and see which one will be the winner.

Back in 1980, John Carpenter directed a little movie called "The Fog." It was not a critically acclaimed film, and it was not a smash hit, but was a modest success and has become a bit of a cult classic. 25 years later in 2005, director Rupert Wainwright decided to release his version of "The Fog." With better technology at his disposal, he figured he could make a newer, sharper looking horror film than Carpenter's low budget feature. Carpenter has managed to outdo an original film with his own remake in the past ("The Thing"), so can Wainwright outdo Carpenter at his own game? Let's take a look at this Feature Film Face-Off: "The Fog" (1980) versus "The Fog" (2005).
