Storyline

The little coastal town of Clark's Harbor seems like the perfect place for psychiatrist Brad Russell and his wife to get a little peace and spend more time with each other. But the locals don't seem very friendly and, every time a storm rolls in, another mysterious death occurs... Could an ancient Indian legend of ghostly tribes and human sacrifice have anything to do with it? Written by <rosshorsley@yahoo.com>

Very bad.
24 December 2017 | by jamesroyholdSee all my reviews

Overall plot is a rip-off of "The Fog." The special effects are lifted from Roger Corman-Vincent Price Poe movies (same shots of rolling clouds and lightning endlessly repeated). The two kids can't act; I think the boy was chosen because he could make his eyes real big. Duffy is surprisingly okay. Easy to figure out who's the villain, just look for who isn't around when things happen.
