A group of family and friends head to a secluded island off the coast of Seattle for a destination wedding. In addition to being picturesque and romantic, the island is also infamous as the site of a homicidal maniac's killing rampage seven years earlier. When people start turning up dead, that becomes a major concern.
It's "My Big Fat White Horror-Wedding," or "Reunion" meets "Big Day" meets "Friday the 13th." "Harper's Island" looks like the sort of knock-off slasher film that usually gets released in January and makes a lot of money without being screened for critics. But those sagas of cute, thin white folks getting butchered only need to last 90 minutes, while this show will somehow have to sustain 13 episodes. Meanwhile, the original pilot presentation was scrapped and recast, so it's unclear how much of the tone of the clips will remain intact.
