    At least When A Stranger Calls got a tad interesting towards the middle. The fog was just insulting.

    I haven't seen When a Stranger Calls, but I don't think there's anyway it could be worse than The Fog. I figured all the negative hype surrounding it was because it was a remake, and I know how remakes are judged in the horror community. I enjoyed most of the other remakes and thought this would be no different. And than I saw it... what a piece of crap! It felt like a reject of Are You Afraid of the Dark. Just horrible! So I'm gonna take a chance and pick When a Stranger Calls, even though I usually never vote when I haven't seen the other movie. Yes, The Fog was that bad!

    When A Stranger Calls wasn't as good as the original, but it had moments where it worked well enough. Plus, Lance Henriksen making threatening phone calls is always a plus, and the house/set was just incredible. The Fog really had nothing but Tom Welling, and I can see him on Smallville.

    Haven't seen When A Stranger Calls yet, but I do own it. I'm assuming it can't be worse than The Fog, one of the worst movies I've seen in a long while. I think I'll go ahead and vote for WASC before even seeing it. That's how confident I am that it won't be as bad as The Fog.

    Like comparing diarrhea to constipation-both unpleasant in their own ways.
     
  11. When a Stranger Calls back has no redeeming qualities at all, even Lance Henrickson was wasted in it. The Fog at least had Tom Welling.

    I wouldn't kick Tom Welling out of bed for eating crackers, but he's no great actor. Despite his presence, The Fog was still a better film.

    I could say it no better than this.

     
  15. Which is the lesser of two evil (and bad) remakes...I went with the Fog! WASC was STUPID to me from beginning to end!
