Melissa Joan Hart,
Jill Robinson takes her teenaged son on a vacation to an island, not knowing of the evil and danger awaiting them. No one on the island has ever aged or gotten sick, because of an ancient ritual where its inhabitants sacrifice an outsider every year. It turns out that this years intended victim is Jills son.

Canadian films can, infrequently, be great. Not so with this turkey. This ranks among the worst that I have ever seen.
Two cousins visit an island off the coast of Oregon. One of them disappears after being injured in an attempted purse snatching. She is taken to the local doctor by an island gentleman/suitor who just "happens" along. The heroine, who shares the same heightened immune system as her cousin, revealed to us by the presence of a birthmark they have in common, spends the duration of the film searching for her missing cousin while receiving no assistance and a lot of unexplainable grief from the local lawman who gives a great impression of a mannequin though not quite as animated. Preposterous events follow one after another. Perhaps the worst performance is rendered by the "troubled" daughter of the local lady doctor dressed in the mandatory full goth. People appear of out nowhere adding nothing to the "suspense" or the plot. Did I say plot? Oh yes. The cherry on the cake is a blood drained corpse with rosy cheeks.
It's the kind of film that you keep watching in hope that you might find some redeeming feature. Fageddaboudit! How do they get funding for such embarrassing trash? Let me guess. Could it be from the Canadian taxpayer?
