October 23, 2011 13 Nights of Hallowe'en 2011: Night 5 The Fog (2005)
Tonight I'm running late and it's all about the connections. In fact a number of the actors and actresses' connections connect up not only amongst themselves, but again with other nights. Here they are...
Tom Welling from Smallville (2001) stars in this remake. His love interest is Maggie Grace from Lost (2004) and the horror TV series Miracles (2003). Selma Blair from Hellboy (2004) and
Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008) plays the local radio station owner and seems much more peripheral to the story than in the original. The director, Rupert Wainwright, also directed Stigmata (1999) and the episode "Echoes" of the TV horror series Fear Itself (2008). Selma's son in the movie played by Cole Heppell was also in the episode "Skin and Bones" of Fear Itself. Jonathon Young plays The Weatherman and is a series regular on Sanctuary (2008) as Nikola Tesla. Kenneth Welsh is in The Fog as well. He has been in The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005), Survival of the Dead (2009), and a spot on the TV series Haven (2011).
Mary Black plays Selma's son's babysitter. She traces back to Millennium (1996) in an episode in 1997 and another in 1998 as different character. Mary also appeared in the Exorcism of Emily Rose, Slither (2006) and The Wicker Man (2006), plus two different episodes of Supernatural (2005) as different characters--though perhaps the same one, it's hard to say--one in 2006 and the other in 2007, and she was in the movie Case 39 (2009). She is also credited in something called The Haunting Hour: The Series (2011). Adrian Hough has been in Underworld: Evolution (2006), an episode of Supernatural in 2006, Aliens vs Predator - Requiem (2007), Jennifer's Body (2009), and an episode of Sanctuary in 2010. He was also uncredited in Case 39. R. Nelson Brown kicked off The Fog telling the story of the town's beginning. He was in The X Files (1993) in a 1996 episode, two episodes of Millennium in 1998, a 2002 episode of Smallville, the movie Devour (Video 2005), a 2007 episode of Supernatural, on Sanctuary in 2007 when it was online only and twice in 2008, a movie called Vampire (2011), and a movie called Zombie Punch (2009) that may or may not have been released anywhere.
