Blood Tide (1982)

Set on a mysterious Greek island somewhere in the Aegean, "Blood Tide" opens with a bizarre ritual. A young girl with a Greek letter painted on her forehead drifts into an alcove, also marked with the same Greek letter, where a hideous creature lies in wait. Flash forward a thousand or so years to the present day as Neil (Martin Kove) and his pretty wife Sherry (Mary-Louise Weller) arrive at the same Greek island in search of Neil's missing sister Madeleine (Deborah Shelton). The isle seems abandoned at first, oddly enough, but it isn't too long before our two, I mean main characters run into a cranky old salt named Frye (James Earl Jones) and his vivacious blonde girlfriend Barbara (Lydia Cornell). Then we meet the locals, a cantankerous bunch of kooks led by the sullen Nereus (Jose Ferrer). These are weird people with weird customs, and they quickly claim they don't have a clue about anything that goes on around the island. Obviously they are hiding something.
