Episode 1 - Volcanic Island Terror
On a volcanic island in the Pacific Ring of Fire, an ancient fishing community is being terrorized by something in the water that's left behind a trail of bloodied victims.
With a collective knowledge built up over centuries, these fishermen thought they knew everything in these waters, until now. The only clue they have to the attacker's identity are the large puncture wounds it's left behind.
Now angling detective Jeremy Wade journeys to this land of fire and folklore to put himself to the ultimate test; can he uncover the identity of this mysterious fanged assailant?
