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 hand 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 against a small California coastal town.
