I'm going to be entirely honest here and tell you that I didn't finish this film, I honestly only got through about the first half hour but it was more than enough time to know what's wrong with this. It's put together like a made-for-tv type thing and the characters the cast are playing are obnoxious. Watching them interact is painful and the fog can't come attack soon enough. It's seriously dull and annoying and I doubt I'll ever get through it. If you are way more patient than me, good for you and you may want to let me know how it ends. I've not seen the original either yet though so I'm not sure if I can blame the story or just the director with this one. Avoid unless you like punishment! Update: I have seen the original and there is absolutely no excuse for this pile of junk.
