John Carpenter's The Fog
from wiki- In 1880, six of the founders of Antonio Bay (including Malone's grandfather) deliberately sank and plundered a clipper ship named the Elizabeth Dane. The ship was owned by Blake, a wealthy man with leprosy who wanted to establish a colony near Antonio Bay. During a foggy night, the six conspirators lit a fire on the beach near treacherous rocks, and the crew of the ship, deceived by the false beacon, crashed into them. Everyone aboard the ship perished. The six conspirators were motivated both by greed and disgust at the notion of having a leper colony nearby. Antonio Bay and its church were then founded with the gold plundered from the ship.

One of the first books I ever read without being forced to was Salem's Lot. I was way to young to read it and it gave me nightmares for months, but it left a fever within me for the macabre and the scary that exists to this day. This piece is dedicated to Ron, Kevin, and my sister Barbara. You three kept feeding my love of what goes bump in the night. I thank you.
