Fog, The (2005)

original title: Fog, The

Comparison:

  • Theatrical Version
  • Unrated Version
Release: Jun 26, 2009 - Author: Glogcke - Translator: Victor - external link: IMDB
- 30 censorship cuts
- 5 extended scenes
- 2 new scenes
- various recuts, alternative shots or effects

Due to the alternative footage here and there it is somewhat hard to determine the exact differences in running time, so only a comparison of the total running time is provided here:
PG-13 (US DVD, NTSC): 99:49 Min.
Unrated(US DVD, NTSC): 103:14 Min.


The often criticized remake of John Carpenters „The Fog“ has been, like a lot of horror movies lately, censored for the PG-13 rating while later of course an Unrated version was released on DVD. This version contains, beside the censored scenes, various storyline extensions that are somewhat nice to have but do not add anything new to the movie.

The cut PG-13 Theatrical Version was released on DVD only in he USA and also in a Fullscreen version. Due to the film being shot in Super 35, this fullscreen version is bearable and often even the better choice since instead of more darkness left and right we can see a better and more complete shot of a person in the middle.

Comparison between the cut PG-13 Theatrical Version from the US-Fullscreen-DVD from Sony and the uncut Unrated Version from US-Widescreen DVD from Sony
