the film begins, four teenagers, two boys and two girls, set out to a secluded
beach for the weekend. The boys are planning a little surfing, a little sex, and
a few stubbies. The girls are planning a lot of sunbathing, and no sex.
The teens have some trouble finding the location, then meet a rather creepy
older surfer dude who advises them to leave. It becomes clear that everything is
not alright. It employs a basic Twilight Zone structure. The very observant will figure out what lies behind the veils, and
