Storyline

The inhabitants of Antonio Island, off the coast of Oregon, are about to unveil a statue honoring the four men (Castle, Wayne, Williams and Malone) who founded their town in 1871. Nick Castle is one of the descendants of the men, and owns a fishing charter company, using his vessel, the Seagrass, for tourism. When his girlfriend Elizabeth Williams returns to the island after spending six months in New York, a bizarre series of events begin to occur, including several gruesome deaths and the presence of a mysterious fog. When Elizabeth slips in Nick's boathouse and falls into the sea, she finds an old journal from 1871, written by Patrick Malone, one of the town's founders. It tells how a man named Blake bought half the island for use as a leper colony. While bringing his people to Antonio Island in their clipper ship, the Elizabeth Dane, Blake is betrayed by Castle, Wayne, Williams and Malone. The four men locked Blake and his people in the vessel, stole their money and possessions, ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

Elizabeth notes on the photographs that "something happened" in 1871, and the town sprung up from a few shacks to a thriving community. Elizabeth's photos predate 1871. Many Western US towns started as collections of shacks around springs, mines, or railroads. The "founding" could be the day a collection of shacks became a formal town. See more »

This movie ROCKED.......me to sleep.
25 October 2005 | by (Raleigh, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

After having read a few of the comments that have already been left, it wouldn't make much sense for me to add much more than has already been said.

You've been warned: This is an hour and a half of your life that you will never, ever recover....and you will be irritated for it.

ZERO chemistry between characters, sub-par acting at best, no story continuity, and, most importantly, NO SCARE FACTOR. I actually found myself chuckling through a few scenes that were supposed to be suspenseful.

Terrible. With the technology available today, this had some serious promise to be an improvement over the original, but it failed miserably. Watch the original Fog.....
