Written and directed by David Prior, the film centers on shocking events originating in a small Midwestern town. After the mysterious disappearance of a group of teenagers, a troubled cop named James Lasombra (James Badge Dale) is thrust into action to investigate. Following leads that may tie a secretive occult-minded group to a terrifying local legend, he soon realizes that his life — and the lives of those close to him — are in terrible danger.
