Plot – San Antonio Bay in California is preparing to celebrate its centenary. Offshore, a light fog envelops a vessel and the crew members are misteriously killed, then the fog approaches to the city. Stevie Wayne, the young radio announcer, sees it from the lighthouse and warns the citizens, but no one believes her at first. Father Malone finds the explanation of it in the diary of his grandfather: a hundred years ago, San Antonio Bay founders promised to help the “Elizabeth Dane" ship, but they managed to sink it to rob the crew's gold. Those sailors are now reduced to "living dead" and are demanding revenge.
