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

don't bother wasting your time or money
21 February 2006 | by mayhoeSee all my reviews

seriously. what the hell? this movie was a complete waste of time. my husband and i ended up just making fun of the entire movie and enjoying it that way. it seems as though the entire movie was written up on a weekend. the continuity in this movie was horrible. it couldn't get in a freezer but it could get in through a kitchen sink? it had trouble with a door but not a car vent? what was with the ghost holding the woman's ankle and then releasing her?

was it ghosts or fog? make up your mind. was it for a selective massacre or a search for a blonde wife?

this movie had absolutely no structure. the acting was a complete sham and the script... oh holy god. i can respect a fun movie with ghosts and bad acting, but it has to have SOMETHING going for it.

the fog had to be one of the worst movies I've seen in a long time.
