Schlocky remake of John Carpenter's 1980 horror film about a cursed island community off Oregon enveloped by a sinister shroud of fog that brings with it the ghostly crew of an ill-fated ship returning to exact revenge on the locals (including Tom Welling, Maggie Grace and Selma Blair) for murderous crimes committed by the town's founding fathers. Directed by Rupert Wainwright, the new version pretty much follows the original's soggy B-movie lead, but, despite slicker effects and a bigger budget, it is mist-ifyingly less suspenseful this time around. Strong violence and gore, including flaming bodies, and an impaling with shards of glass, a sexual encounter, horror effects, and minimal crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
