A seaside town they forgot to close down. Shuttered shops and amusement arcades. A windswept beach in the depths of winter. The only sensible option is to leave, or stay and decay like the town itself.
One girl who had managed to escape is our hero, Frankie. But she’s dragged back when her mother suffers a mental health episode. Frankie cares for her mum, but is convinced she’s faking her paranoia in an effort to get Frankie to stay. Besides, mum has a new boyfriend - a respected member of the town community.
One day Frankie decides enough is enough. She argues with her mother and says she’s going to back to university. She storms out, on a mission to see her old school friends before she leaves. She meets her old best friend, Holly, in a seaside cafe - where in the best traditions of horror films, a crazy old yokel warns her to get out now while she still can.
She of course ignores that advice and as night falls, Frankie and Holly go in search of boys and whatever entertainment is on offer in this dead-end town. After a few drinks in the terrible local pub, they meet up with some boy-racers, busy racing their pimped-up hatchbacks along the sea-front.
The girls and the boys head to a house party - but they’re followed by a masked figure in a large coat. At the party the standard sex, drugs and alcohol ensue. Frankie hooks up with her ex who she left in the lurch last time.
It’s now that the killings start - two party-goers are bludgeoned to death by the mysterious figure - who we reveal is wearing a hideous and terrifying Punch mask from a Punch & Judy show.
The killer follows Frankie and a couple of her friends to the beach, and interrupts their fire-lit gathering. They all flee for their lives in the cold blackness of the desolate beach, but Punch manages to kill both Frankie’s best friend and her ex. Just in time the police turn up - only for Punch to brutally murder a young policeman.
Trapped and alone, Frankie flees to the end of the pier. It’s in the amusement arcade - full of whirring lights and loud noises - that she finally confronts Punch. In the fight, she discovers his true identity - her mum’s new boyfriend. After a fight for her life, she pushes Punch off the pier, into the inky waters beneath.
She thinks the killer is gone but in a terrifying twist, her nightmare is only just beginning…
