Pretty Darn Good Movie
22 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"I'm A Cop, Not A Witch Doctor". ~ Chief Whalen

Dr. Brad Russell and his wife decide to movie to a nice little coastal town of Clark's Harbor. Seems like a nice place to live although some of the people aren't overly friendly it's still a seemingly alright place to live - it's beautiful and the house is nice. Soon enough one person turns up dead, then another - this happens every time a storm rolls in off the sea. There is an old Indian legend around time but as Chief Whalen says 'legends don't kill people'. Is it ghosts? Is it a crazy murderer? Or is it all a series coincidences?

Very atmospheric: storms, fog, dark nights, suspenseful moments, murder. This one is a pretty darn good TV movie. I really enjoyed it.

8/10
