* MustBeInvited: If the fog can't come inside, the ghosts can't either unless you let them. [[spoiler:Of course, at the climax, the ghosts start getting impatient, as they just plain ''smash'' their way into the church and the lighthouse]]

Added DiffLines:

* BreadEggsMilkSquick: Kathy runs through her list of things to do to get ready for the festival - and the last thing is to go home and pass out.


Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsGun:
** Stevie's radio station becomes the only thing that can warn people about the dangers of the fog.
** When reading the journal, Father Malone says he couldn't read past the night where the six conspirators murdered Blake's crew. [[spoiler: Had he read on, he'd discover that the gold the ghosts are after is hidden in the church walls]].


Added DiffLines:

* DrowningMySorrows: Father Malone is found drinking in his study on the evening of the festival.
* EverytownAmerica: Despite being a seaside town, what we see of Antonio Bay fits the trope. The festival even looks a bit like a 4th July celebration.


Added DiffLines:

* ExtremelyShortTimespan: The film takes place over the course of one day, beginning around midnight and finishing some time the next evening.


Added DiffLines:

* InfantImmortality: [[spoiler: Andy is in danger when the ghosts attack his house, but he's rescued by Nick and Elizabeth]].


Added DiffLines:

* MamaBear: Stevie tries anyway. When she sees the fog heading towards her house, she desperately screams into her radio for someone to rescue Andy. But she also defies this in a way; on the radio she apologises to Andy for not coming herself, because she needs to warn the rest of the town.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicence: Stevie's generator is clearly a gas-powered one - so it should be outside the lighthouse instead of inside.


Added DiffLines:

* ForgottenFallenFriend: When Andy is rescued from his house, no one asks about the fate of his babysitter Mrs Kobritz. He does briefly mention her towards the end as one of the victims though.

* AdultFear: Stevie realises that her son is in danger and, trapped in the radio station, there's nothing she can do except send out distress messages in the hope that someone will hear and go to help. Even by the end of the film, she still has no idea if Andy has made it to safety.
* ArousedByTheirVoice: Stevie puts on this type of voice when broadcasting her music. One of the first scenes has the three sailors getting turned on by it. [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness She drops the voice instantly when she has to make an emergency broadcast]].



* BrokenPedestal: Father Malone's image of his grandfather is shattered when he discovers the journal and the DarkSecret.
--> "The celebration tonight is a travesty. We're honouring murderers."



* DeadpanSnarker: Sandy, Kathy Williams's snarky assistant.
--> '''Kathy:''' Sandy, you're the only person I know who can make "yes, ma'am" sound like "screw you".
--> '''Sandy:''' Yes, ma'am.



* FogOfDoom: It's in the title, folks.

* FogOfDoom: It's in the title, folks. Notably it moves against the wind, glows with an eerie light and can short out electricity.



* TheHecateSisters: The three principal female characters. Elizabeth, the youngest and the newcomer in town, is the Maiden. Stevie, the only mother in the cast, is the Matron. Kathy, the eldest and sharp-witted, is the Crone.



* HorrorDoesntSettleForASimpleTuesday: The ghosts strike on the town's 100th anniversary celebration.



* IronLady: Kathy Williams, even though she's just the chairwoman of the town committee. When she hears her husband may have been lost at sea, she still continues with her work in the celebration.



* OneSteveLimit: Averted. One of the protagonists is called Elizabeth, and the ship that Blake captained was called the Elizabeth Dane. [[spoiler: There's no connection - except in the remake]].



* ScreamingWoman: Elizabeth does a bit of screaming when the bodies of the fishermen are involved. Other than that though, she keeps a cool head.
* ServileSnarker: Sandy, who is Kathy's assistant.
--> '''Kathy:''' Are you going to give a benediction tonight, Father?
--> '''Father Malone:''' This town has a curse on it.
--> '''Sandy:''' Do we take that as a 'no'?



* SinisterMinister: Father Malone's grandfather, who participated in the murder of the leper colony. Father Malone himself is more of a GoodShepherd.
