Lovecraftian in tone, this ultra eerie and obscure film takes an idyllic California beach town as its setting for what may (or may not be) a Cannibal or Vampire film. When Arletty arrives looking for her reclusive artist father, she quickly discovers that the town of Point Dune holds a dark secret. The strange and guarded townsfolk speak of the Blood Moon and the coming of their sea-dwelling Messiah. Through her fathers written accounts and her strange encounters with the locals, Arletty witnesses the horrific effects of a spreading plague that is causing its victims to develop a taste for raw meat. Penned by screenwriters Gloria Katz and William Huyck (American Graffiti and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom) the story is ripe with allusions to hippie/religious-cult panic, the Vietnam war and the dystopian politics of the day.  

"... a brilliant movie which exceeds every other Gothic horror film since the war in terms of narrative ingenuity.   David Pirie, The Vampire Cinema
