A muddled, under-populated shocker about two vacationing couples; troubled artist Kay (Sarah Kendall) and her doctor husband David (Alan McRae) and Sarah's brother Eric (Frederick Flynn) and his wife Brooke (Carol Kottenbrook), who travel to secluded Tybee Island off the coast of Georgia. A deformed mutant monster, which has been a frequent fixture of Kay's nightmares since childhood and has now somehow manifested itself in the real world, shows up to kill them all off. Stupid character actions, too many scenes of the couples wandering around the island and a plotline that makes little actual sense drag this movie down somewhat, but there are some excellent gore scenes including a head being smashed in with an oar, a pitchfork being thrust through the chest, a cigarette to the hand and hooks ripping off skin. The location work, music score and photography are all decent.
