House on Haunted Hill vs. The Fog



House on Haunted Hill has some impressively gruesome and creepy scenes during the first half or so, but then loses steam. The Fog isn't terribly scary, but it does create a decent atmosphere of dread. I guess The Fog's biggest advantage is that I actually like the characters enough to be somewhat concerned for their welfare. Nobody is all that likable in House on Haunted Hill, and so it's more of an empty experience. The dark sense of humor in House on Haunted Hill helps it a bit, but not enough.

The Fog crushes.
