Nick Castle is one of the descendants of the men, and owns a fishing charter company, using his vessel, the Seagrass, for tourism.

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.....
