Horror, Suspense/Thriller
Fogeddaboutit. How is it possible to make a movie about zombie lepers who can manipulate water vapor, and have it be boring? Ask director Rupert Wainwright (Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em: The Movie, seriously), who has taken a reasonably cool 1980 John Carpenter horror flick, subtracted everything that made it cool (practical special effects, good cast, narrative coherence), and added a ludicrous plot twist that makes no sense at all. TV Superman Tom Welling takes over the lead role originated by Dick Baxter, as a model-like sailor juggling two girlfriends in a coastal town. As the local DJ, Selma Blair is an improvement over Adrienne Barbeau, but gets less to do. Meanwhile, an evil fog comes into town every night bearing undead killers -- however, their supernatural powers this time out are arbitrary and inconsistent; nor is it clear why they stop when they do. (Screenwriter Cooper Layne also wrote The Core, which actually made more sense.) Less fun than Cry_Wolf and Venom, if that's possible.
