Storyline

On the beach one night, Christine Faber, two years a widow, thinks she hears her late husband Paul calling out of the surf...then meets a tall dark man, Alexis, who seems to know all about such things. After more ghostly manifestations, Christine and younger sister Janet become enmeshed in the eerie artifices of Alexis; but he in turn finds himself manipulated into deeper deviltry than he had in mind...

12 June 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Several people posting about this film have mentioned that it must be preserved or ought to be preserved, so I am writing to say: www.archive.org has the film digitized in several formats. I downloaded the smaller version, about 250MB, and it's watchable. But they have also digitized it for DVD burning, with an enormous and detailed file that is 2.8G in size.

Archive.org is a non-profit preservation site that digitizes old films whose copyright has expired. They are a wonderful resource, and I encourage all old film lovers to use them extensively and recommend them to their friends.

I have watched more than a dozen of their films in the past month. They're wonderful.
