Strange things begin to occurs as a tiny California coastal town prepares to commemorate its centenary. Inanimate objects spring eerily to life; Rev. Malone stumbles upon a dark secret about the town's founding; radio announcer Stevie witnesses a mystical fire; and hitchhiker Elizabeth discovers the mutilated corpse of a fisherman. Then a mysterious iridescent fog descends upon the village, and more people start to die.

The use of lightning and camera angles create unreal atmosphere which is enhanced by the fog that's more literal threat in this than usually.

The movie version of the story was filmed around Point Reyes and its terrific lighthouse, a dark and stormy place that lends itself to a spooky story. It draws inspiration from Poe and Lovecraft and features mainly unseen evil.
The Rodent
It contains disturbing and upsetting stories of murder and theft that lead to the towns beginnings 100 years before. The movie is an absolute entertainer.
