The Fog

Synopsis: 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, an

Williams, what is it?

What did we hit?

I don't know.

There's something in the water.

Clear us now, Williams.

- Hold steady, Wayne.

- There's something down there.

Clear it away.

I can't see anything.


Hey, out there.

You've got the one and only

Stevie Wayne...

...broadcasting from my own

little corner of the world...

...high in the KAB lighthouse

on Antonio Island.

It is perfect weather for this week's

dedication of the new statue...

...honoring the memory

of Antonio Bay's founding fathers.

So get on down to the town hall

and check out the monument... those four brave men.

One of whom was

my great-great-grandfather...

...Richard Wayne.

Did I already mention that?

David Williams.

Patrick Malone.

Norman Castle. Richard Wayne.

- It's all wrong.

- Oh, come on, Kathy.

Who cares which one

holds the telescope.

It's a spyglass, Tom.

David Williams is supposed to be

holding it. He was the visionary.

We've gotta get this right.

The four of them rode out

against impossible odds... defend this island

with their lives.

I know, I know. Through the fog.

The Malone family name is on

that statue, Tom.

- It has to be accurate.

- We've got tourists arriving on Friday.

What do you wanna do,

send it back?

Fine. We'll have

the unveiling tomorrow...

...and I'll send it back

at the end of the season.

Look around you, boys.

This is God's country.

Anywhere you go on Earth...

Sea of Cortez, Nantucket Sound...

...Gulf of Mexico. -you'll never find

better fishing than what we had here.

- Sushi?

- No. I'm good, thanks.

Nice speech.

And you've been to how many

of those places?

Not a one.

My dad used to tell me stories.

He was the traveler.

Sure is a long way out

to find the sandbar.

Well, this is where

the ocean floor is.

Which is where the kelp

and the little fish are...

...which is why you got

some big fish here today.

- Mr. Spooner?

- Sir?

- Let's weigh the anchor, call it a day.

- Yes, sir.

Damn. Hey, yo, Nick.

We're snagged on something.

Spooner? You all right?

The winch is jammed.

I can't shut it off.

- Shut it down.

- I'm trying to.

Spooner. Spooner.

- Nick, get up here.

- Give it some slack.

I'm trying to, all right?

The winch is stuck.

Hey, I lost all my fish.

- We're going down.

- We're not going down.

- Spooner.

- Can't get it. It's not coming loose.

You guys okay?

Yeah. See?

You got a little something there.

Sorry about the mishap.

Come back and see us again.

Yeah, we'll be back.

What? They said they'd be back.

They-They-I believe them.

I was convinced, when they said...

..."We'll be back,"

they had the "I'll be back" face.

- Hey, yo, Nick.

- Yeah, in here.

I don't suppose they left

a brother a tip.

Yeah, right.

Hey, you know

that wasn't my fault, right?

Don't-Do that again.

Damn, you sexy as hell

when you're mad. It's incredible.

Where you going?

We got decks to swab.

I'm going to Little Ray's to get

a clutch for the one you broke.

I broke it?

Make sure you end up at Little Ray's.

Don't end up at little Stevie's.

- That was a one-time thing.

- All three times?

Because I remember the lighthouse,

then the time in the field.

Oh, let's not forget about

the little church parking lot, choir boy.

- Twice. It was twice.

- Twice all three times?

- Your point is?

- Really don't have one.

But she does know Elizabeth.

What if she blabs?

Elizabeth... 3000 miles away.

She's been gone for six months.

Distance is not a factor.

Women have testicle telepathy, man.

Hose down the boat, lock it up...
