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

Trivia

In this version Elizabeth is the daughter of the town official. In the earlier version these characters were played by real life mother and daughter Janet Leigh and Jamie Lee Curtis. However, in that version their characters are not connected and only share one scene and never speak to each other on screen. See more »

Goofs

Tom Malone's stunt double is clearly visible when he's being attacked on the church. The stunt man wears a wig that proves to be unsuited for the character who is slightly bald while the wig has longer hair when he moves. See more »

Quotes

Father Malone: So now you know.
Elizabeth Williams: That our forefathers murdered every man, woman and child on the Elizabeth Dane? And this town was built on nothing but lies?
Father Malone: And now they've come for revenge.

Should I stop watching The Fog?
23 October 2010 | by greg_clark-878-172527See all my reviews

I remember Carpenter's original - not one of his best - but I sort of enjoyed it (maybe a 5?). Couldn't see why anyone would remake it but started watching the 2005 "model". I got more than an hour in in and had had to go to IMDb. Maybe it would be like "The Mist" (now that was awesome). But the reviews confirmed my worst fears. It must be one of the most boring movies ever made? All that talent out there and they DO THIS? Is it some sort of tax dodge? I don't get it. I'll turn it off and, following another reviewer's idea - watch my clothes dry. Why did they make this? It's about as scary as the Muppets and everything is choreographed 15 minutes in advance. Watch the Muppets - or I dare you - "The Mist".
