Verbatim Box Synopsis
Seven week-end vacationers inhabit a small island off the coast of Maine.  Their ranks are slowly depleted by senseless brutal murders.

Since the seven are members of immediate family or friends of over thirty years they conclude that there must be someone else on the island responsible for the violence.

However a search of the island leaves no room for doubt... They are the only ones there and one of them is the savage killer.

  1. Writer Shane M. Dallmann picked this tape up for me a good 12-13-14(?) years ago somewhere in the wilds of California and immediately mailed it out after viewing. (For the record, he wasn't a fan.) When it arrived, I was very amused to see he had fashioned some comic text bubbles out of post-it notes and placed them on the case! I would have thought I would've saved them in the box, but alas they're currently nowhere to be found... :-(

  2. I like that the title is equally at home as a slasher flick or a teen sex comedy.

  3. And the movie doesn't succeed as either one of 'em!
