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>

First and only John Saul adaptation
19 July 2001 | by notail99See all my reviews

Saw this on UK TV some years back - just as my interest in John Saul reached a peak.

Not a bad film, really - considering the TV-movie limitations imposed on it - but not so great either.

If you like John Saul give it a go - otherwise......don't bother.
