Laura seems perfectly safe being in the fog world, therefore if the monsters were common for people in the fog world (as it appears to be for Murphy, Anne and DJ Bobby Ricks) then it should be too for Laura.
Shouldn't she see what James sees in the fog world?
I tend to interpret this in a sense that, separately, or at the same time, individuals on their own, or a general consensus collectively as a group ( cult ) or communally ( societal views as a whole ) can be manifested from the subconscious mind all at the same time.
So in a sense, in the otherworld you can see what I see ..... and you cannot see what I see depending on the situation. Because we equally share views and at the same time we may have completely different opinions and outlooks on things as far as morality ( etc ) as our own individual experiences shape our perceptions and point of view about things.
This makes a lot of sense.
This is a good reconciliation between the two games
