'Harper's Island' Mania, Take One

“Just because you made the guest list, doesn't mean you'll make it to the wedding.”

Ah, I love a good tagline. And if this marvelous marketing moniker is any indication of how good Harper’s Island – CBS’ edgy, experimental 13-week limited-run series that I first told you about here – will be, then slasher fans are in for a televised treat. From the CBS website:

"HARPER'S ISLAND is about a group of family and friends who travel to a secluded island off the coast of Seattle for a destination wedding. This island is famous for a streak of unsolved murders from seven years ago. Although they've come to laugh and to love, what they don't know is they've also come... to die. As the wedding festivities begin, friendships are tested and secrets exposed as a murderer claims victims, one by one, transforming the wedding week of fun and celebration into a terrifying struggle for survival.In every episode, someone is killed and every person is a suspect, from the wedding party to the island locals.

By the end of the 13 episodes, all questions will be answered, the killer will be revealed and only a few will survive."

Fun stuff, huh? And on TV! And, it starts on my birthday – April 9th! How cool is that, I ask? Like a gift from the slasher gods.

Get ready, because I’m thinking there is going to be much Harper’s ado made here at Slasher Speak. In the meantime, check out one of what promises to be many terrific fansites dedicated to the show and watch the newest trailer for the show below:
