Two young women are on a vacation to a small island. While there, they run afoul of a bunch of masked killers. One is killed, and the other is captured by the fiends. The survivor's father turns up on the island to investigate, only to discover a dark secret...
This film contains examples of:
- Bad Cop/Incompetent Cop: The cops on the island are so apathetic that they literally refuse to actually enforce the law.
- Big Bad: The Main Man, leader of the gang of masked killers.
- Decoy Protagonist: At first it seems like Elizabeth will be the main character trying to evade the killers, but the focus shifts to her father Tim's attempts to rescue her in the last half hour.
- Downer Ending: Both girls are killed by the gang, and the only one who could have stopped them kills himself in his grief. While the gang are down a few members, they continue their killing spree with complete impunity.
- Generic Doomsday Villain: The masked killers are never identified or unmasked, nor is there any explanation for why they're doing this or how they have so much control over the town.
- Genre Throwback: To 1970's backwoods exploitation horror.
- Gory Deadly Overkill Title of Fatal Death
- The Hero Dies: Tim shoots himself in his grief over learning that his daughter has been tortured to death.
- Malevolent Masked Men: The main antagonists of the film are a group of masked killers who are even credited by their masks.
- My Car Hates Me: The main character can't drive away to escape her tormenters because her car is out of gas for the whole film.
- Retraux: As the film is a throwback to backwoods exploitation films of The '70s, film grain is deliberately inserted, along with the occasional sequence of the "film reel" running out.
- Tap on the Head: Elizabeth survives several traumatic head injuries over the course of the film, despite being knocked unconscious every time.
- Town with a Dark Secret: The locals are in on and cover up the killers' activities. No explanation is given as to why.
