Below is a synopsis for The Counting House from the official website for the movie.
Four employees of Island Fisheries come to a sun-scorched, isolated island to negotiate fishing rights with the sullen, paranoid islanders, who have good reason to be afraid.
Soon after the arrival of the four, a mysterious force - which the islanders thought was chained forever in the dank basement of the foreboding old Counting House - is once again on the loose, savagely killing the island's women.
Caught in a power struggle between rival island factions over how to stop the killing, the mainlanders are jailed. They manage to break out, but with a vigilante mob on their heels, can they reach the boat in time? They do, only to confront the mysterious, terrifying force that blocks their path just as they reach the boat.
