Welcome to Glory, the Island of Happiness. Well, that's what the billboard says anyway. The seemingly idyllic small island town in the Pacific Northwest is a breeding ground for eerie events, bizarre happenings and peculiar inhabitants where truth is often stranger than fiction, and sometimes even deadly. Eddie Cahill plays Mike Dolan, a one-hit-wonder novelist who returns to his Pacific Northwest home town to do some sleuthing into the community's strange goings-on. The latest effort by "Scream" scribe and Dawson's Creek creator Kevin Williamson infuses the tried-and-true mystery-thriller formula with some of the elements that made his horror film a blockbuster---slick visuals, an attractive cast and a self-aware sense of humor.

Ben Caldwell and deceptively smart Det. Janice Lawrence, Larsen and Davis assess the threat level of cases and respond before the stalking and intimidation spirals out of control, all while trying to keep their personal obsessions at bay.
