Santa Carla

Santa Carla, coastal California town (based on, and filmed in Santa Cruz, CA) plagued by gang activity and unexplained disappearances. The family moves in with Lucy's father (Barnard Hughes), a cantankerous and eccentric old man who lives on the outskirts of town, and enjoys taxidermy as a hobby.

The center of town life is the boardwalk and amusement park, which is plastered with flyers of missing people.
