THE FOG Collector’s Edition Blu-ray™ and DVD
A weather beaten old fisherman tells an ancient tale of betrayal and death to fascinated children as they huddle together by their campfire. As a piece of driftwood in a child’s hands glows with spectral light an eerie fog envelops the bay and from it’s midst emerge dripping demonic victims of a century old shipwreck… seeking revenge.
