Sea Side Terror
14 November 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Stuart Whitman & Gena Rowlands play Ed & Kate Lucas, who are vacationing when he picks up a local souvenir that is a statue made of concrete with a harpoon sticking out of it. Kate is inexplicably fascinated by it, constantly picking it up and looking at it. She is then compelled to visit a local sea side inn where the proprietor happens to know the story behind the statue, a tragic love affair involving a real sea captain and his lost love known as Katharine. This leads to strange events occurring until they are drawn into a real ghost story to be played out with them as the main participants... Good episode with a nice atmosphere and interesting story leading to a suspenseful end.
