Anthropology Professor Nick Upton is tired of his life, tired of the redneck state he has to live in, tired of uninterested students, and most of all tired of his own laziness. Something has to change.
But his grey existence gets violently shaken when, during a run, he discovers signs of a sinister cult sacrificing animals in abandoned houses around his Upper Midwest college town.
Soon he is plunged into a dark world where town rivalries turn murderous and force him to team up with the locals he’s never trusted in order to face the growing evil in the hidden depths of the countryside.
But can Nick and his band of locals prevail, or will this be the challenge that finally breaks the bored Professor!
