"This is the description of the movie I was able to find from the net. Daniel King (Chris John) is a struggling young artist enlivened at the prospect of returning to his hometown, where he has been invited by his old friend Natasha (Carol Kentish) to make use of a house she has recently acquired. Daniel enthusiastically accepts despite his fiancée Laura's (Lara Clancy) reservations; she accompanies him only reluctantly. Once they arrive, Daniel seeks out Natasha, leaving Laura to settle in alone, and she immediately takes note of a few oddities about their new abode. An odd, disturbing sequence of events ensues, including an old recurring dream that returns to haunt Daniel's sleep, the strangely frigid air of the house that is inconsistent with the season, and an encounter with a crazed local priest (Brian Blessed, ALEXANDER). When Daniel overhears a conversation about an old local legend at the village watering-hole, he begins to suspect that an unnatural evil lurks in the depths of the ocean, preying upon the souls of the guilty. Soon a forgotten secret emerges to terrorize him, and the pieces of a sinister puzzle fall together as an ancient evil comes to claim its due.
