Something is lurking in the woods just beyond Aaron and Ellen Dreyer’s new country home, and an evil that has been hiding in plain sight for centuries is about to emerge.
A neighbor is brutally murdered, their 4-year-old son goes missing in broad daylight, and the local town of Bensalem devolves into a cesspool of finger-pointing and chaos.
With nowhere left to turn, Aaron and Ellen are forced to venture into the woods to find their son -- and the truth. But in the process, they uncover a force larger and more sinister than anything they ever could have imagined.
It’s been four months since the biggest tragedy in town history rocked the rural hamlet of Bensalem, Virginia. New Sheriff Cheryl McNamara has vowed to uncover the truth about her town’s dark history and drive out the terrors roaming their forests.
Her big break comes from an unexpected source: her teenage daughter Skylar, whose fascination with the occult and unique ties to an ancient mystery that has kept the town mired to its demonic nature, makes a remarkable discovery.
But tragedy strikes again, and when evil's true form is revealed, it is young Skylar who must confront not only the Nothus, but the terrifying secrets behind it.
