Storyline

In the hot summer of 1988, against the backdrop of mass hysteria over satanic ritualistic homicides, the leather-clad metalhead, Alexis, and her best friends, Val and Beverly, embark on a road trip to a heavy-metal concert. But, there, a chance encounter with a trio of young hard rockers will pave the way for seduction, deceit, and murder, as nothing is what it appears to be. Now, blood stains the walls of Alexis' secluded mansion in the woods. Who shall live, and who shall die after summoning the darkness? Written by Nick Riganas
