Plot Summary

  • The centenary of the small seaside town of Antonio Bay, California is approaching. One hundred years ago, the wealthy leper Blake bought the clipper ship Elizabeth Dane and sailed with his people to form a leper colony. However, while sailing through a thick fog, they were deliberately misguided by a campfire onshore, steering the course of the ship toward the light and crashing her against the rocks. While the townsfolk prepare to celebrate, the victims of this heinous crime that the town's founding fathers committed rise from the sea to claim retribution. Under cover of the fog, they carry out their vicious attacks, searching for what is rightly theirs.

  • On April 21, 1880, the wealthy leper Blake bought the vessel Elizabeth Dane and sailed with his people to California to form a leper colony. However, while sailing through a thick fog, they were deliberately misguided by a campfire onshore, steering the course of the vessel toward the light and crashing her against the rocks. One hundred years later, on the centenary of the fishing town Antonio Bay, Father Robert Malone finds the journal of his grandfather hidden in the wall of his church. It discloses how Antonio Bay was built using Blake's fortune after a group of conspirators, including his grandfather, lighted the fire to sink the Elizabeth Dane and stole Blake's fortune. A strange glowing fog appears, bringing the ghosts of Blake and his crew up from their watery graves to seek vengeance.

  • The centennial of the small town of Antonio Bay, California has arrived, though the events of 100 years ago are about to come back to haunt the town. A conspiracy led by the town's founders resulted in the deaths of several lepers in a shipwreck. The conspirators had planned to lure the lepers' ship towards the rocks so that it would sink, and they could recover the cargo of gold and use it to pay for building the town. The sinister plot succeeded when a fog rolled in, blinding the crew, and forcing them to follow the false fire on shore. Now the fog that led them to their doom has returned, bringing with it the ghosts of the crew as they seek revenge on the residents of Antonio Bay...
