The quiet farming town of New Hampstead is almost deserted. The few people that remain have been corrupted by the essence of evil, a presence that whispers to them at night, urging them to kill, urging them to protect their way of life at all costs. Tanner Reeves is a weary vagrant who happens to stumble across New Hampstead as he looks for work and an opportunity to escape the ghosts of his past. A night of unexpected passion with a dark-haired temptress leads to him waking in her bed, seemingly abandoned but nonetheless besotted by her. His bond to the woman holds him captive in the apparent haven, blinding him to the malice that has cocooned the town. Tanner begins to fear for his sanity as the voices in the night call out to him, infecting his dreams, showing him the true face of an evil he never knew existed. He realises that something else resides in the town, something omnipotent, uninvited and monstrous. The problem for Tanner becomes clear: once a stranger sets foot in New Hampstead, the town is reluctant to ever let them leave.
