Kingfish is an upcoming feature film that fans of The Goonies and Stand By Me will love. The story takes us to Montauk, NY, where a small fishing community is being overrun by real estate developers and wealthy vacationers. In a last ditch effort to buy back their beloved bar, a motley group of young locals goes searching for the buried treasure of historic pirate and local legend, Captain Kidd.
Their adventure lands them on Wolcott Island, a large, private island just off the coast of Montauk. After being stalked by a dangerous presence in the woods, our three heroes take shelter in an imposing manor belonging to the reclusive Wolcott family. Before long, they realize that their hosts may harbor evil intentions, as they uncover family secrets that will either save or destroy them.
