'Deal with the Devil' stories are not uncommon in the horror genre, or even outside of it- the movie 'Crossroads', for example, was a pretty mainstream film in the 1980s. So it's not as if 'Ebb Tide' is working virgin territory here. But what SUSPENSE writers Alsedek & Perry-Hayes do here that is out of the ordinary is really work on the fears of mortality that we all have. The protagonist is neither a saint nor a demon- he's just a man who's made mistakes and is desperate to rectify them as best he can...no matter the cost. Christopher Duva does a solid job here, playing the lead over the course of forty years. And there's some hot guitar, courtesy of Jason Lee and Buddy Dughi.
