Harper's Island (2009)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Harper's Island (2009) The premise of this thirteen-episode Television series is that a group of friends reunite for a wedding on their home of Harper's Island, seven years after a serial killer by the name of John Wakefield (Callum Keith Rennie of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA) went on a murderous spree. The sheriff, Charlie Mills (Jim Beaver of SUPERNATURAL) says that he had shot him dead but no body was ever recovered. The couple getting married is Trish Wellington (Katie Cassidy of BLACK CHRISTMAS) and Henry Dunn (ODYSSEY 5). She's the daughter of a millionaire and he used to work on her dad's boats during the summers on the island, when he was a teenager. Her father is Thomas Wellington (Richard Burgi), who does not want Henry to marry his little girl. The majority of the story is seen through the eyes of Abby Mills, who was the best friend of Henry growing up. And she's also the daughter of the sheriff, who she hasn't spoken to in those seven years because of things said and unresolved issues. You see, her mother was one of the people John Wakefield killed.

One by one the guests are picked off. Henry's uncle (Harry Hamlin) gets cut in half after he falls through a bridge, other characters are hung and decapitated, set on fire, shot with harpoons, you name it. Because it's television the way we see these murders is usually after the fact, with the camera widening out to show the dismembered corpse. Each episode has a title like "Ka-Blam", "Thwack" or "Gurgle", which gives you a hint about how someone will die. And the show keeps you guessing as to who the killer may be, though you can probably guess by episode seven or eight.

This is FRIDAY THE 13th crossed with Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians". I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this television series. Check it out.
