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.
Press were granted access to the set in between takes in Vancouver. During Selma Blair's interview, director Rupert Wainwright made a joke she didn't like. In response, Blair reached into her shirt, pulled out a rubber breast enhancement pad, and flung it across the conference room at the director, deadpanning, "That's the Adrienne Barbeau part of the role."
Selma Blair performed nearly all of her own stunts. For her underwater scenes, she spent 12 hours in a water tank, with only short surface breaks, for two days straight.
Despite being credited as producer, John Carpenter described his participation thusly: "I come in and say hello to everybody. Go home."
