    This has me about ready to blind buy Dead and Buried...I agree with the sleepy seaside town being a great location. Sounds like it is time to give Dead and Buried a spin...

    Dead and Buried is a great flick. Watched for the first time a few years back on Netflix and I didn't hesitate to get the Blu thereafter.

    I'll add a third rec for Dagon, which gives you pretty much what you're lookin' for--plus, budget-rate CGI!

    Close to what your looking for.

    Witchery (1988) and the series Harper's Island (2009)

    I agree about the Woman In Black. However, I found The Mutilator near impossible to sit through.

    Really? I was late to the party with The Mutilator, but I thought it was pretty good in that gory, no-frills 80s kinda way.

    Nope, it was filmed right here in Newfoundland (not part of the Maritimes). The beach that the whale pushes his dead mate onto is literally five minutes from my house, it's pretty awesome.

    Petty Harbour (the town in the film) looks almost identical to this day. Very cool stuff.

    Messiah of Evil. Great film with echoes of Carnival of Souls and Night of the Living Dead, and similar in tone to Let's Scare Jessica To Death. The Blu-ray release is excellent.

    Probably my favorite small coastal town setting right next to Dead & Buried and The Fog. Humanoids from the Deep was filmed in Fort Bragg, California. According to wikki:

    I think The Wind with Meg Foster and Wings Hauser is super underrated.

    There's also The Lost Boys, which I'm sure everyone has seen.

    I always liked the finale of "Lady in White" for that fantastic sea cliff setting.

    Scooby Doo had a lot of creepy, deserted-town plotlines, including two of my favorites, the "Ghost Diver" and the "Miner 49er".
