No English translation available yetWas als eine Woche voller Lebensfreude und Feierlichkeiten geplant war, verwandelt sich in einen tödlichen Albtraum. Die bildschöne Erbin Trish Wellington (Katie Cassidy) und ihr Verlobter Henry Dunn (Christopher Gorham) haben sehr unterschiedliche Gäste - Freunde und Familie - zu ihrer Hochzeit auf einer abgelegenen Insel eingeladen. Obwohl die Insel bezaubernd und romantisch erscheint, besitzt sie eine düstere Vergangenheit. Vor sieben Jahren wurden sechs Menschen auf grausame Weise durch den Killer John Wakefield getötet - einschließlich der Mutter von Henrys bester Freundin, Abby Mills (Elaine Cassidy). Je näher der große Tag kommt desto mehr Geheimnisse werden enthüllt, Beziehungen auf die Probe gestellt und Gäste ermordet - einer nach dem anderen.
Harper's Island: 37 Meilen vor der Küste Seattles. Vor sieben Jahren wurden hier 6 Menschen von John Wakefield ermordet. Sie waren die ersten Morde in der Geschichte der Insel... sie werden nicht die letzten sein. Seattle, Washington: Im Hafen laufen die letzten Vorbereitungen zur Abfahrt des Bootes der Hochzeitsgemeinschaft von Bräutigam Henry Dunn und der Braut Patrica "Trish" Wellington. Mit einem Taxi gelangt auch Henrys beste Freundin, Abby, zur Feier. Sie ist die Tochter des Sheriffs der Insel. Auch der Onkel von Henry, von allen nur Onkel Marty genannt, kommt als einer der letzten auf das Boot. Er hat eine Waffe und Geldbündel bei sich. Doch Cousin Ben fehlt. Dieser ist, was die anderen nicht wissen, im Wasser unter dem Boot mit einer Taucherausrüstung angebunden und kämpft ums Überleben. Beim Auslaufen des Schiffs in Richtung Harper's Island wird er schließlich von der Schiffsschraube geköpft. Er ist das erste Opfer.
Henry goes skeet shooting with his future in-laws, while Trish's bridesmaids help her try to get rid of Hunter before Henry finds out. Sully steps up his flirtations with Chloe, but she only has eyes for Cal. Sheriff Mills investigates Kelly's apparent suicide, which causes even more tension between Shane and JD. After Henry confronts Tom over his meddling, Tom pays off Hunter to leave the island.

Sheriff Mills is seriously injured while trekking through the woods and is cared for by an old acquaintance, but the help is short lived when a fire breaks out. Abby receives a phone call from the kidnapped Madison, who says she'll be killed if any of them try to flee the island. Sully wants to leave anyway, but Cal talks the others out of it. Abby and Jimmy head for the marina, where Abby witnesses someone else die, with cryptic last words.

When state troopers arrive for custody of JD, they get an unpleasant surprise. Trish is let in on the secret of the attic. An attack on the marina leaves Henry injured but spells worse for Jimmy.
