The eerie crackling in the woods keeps some away, but the more brazen tempt the fates, teasing whatever lurks in the shadows by coming close to its lair. Over two hundred years have passed since the beast made itself known to the residents of the small mining town. Throughout the years it toys with them, possessing them, tormenting them, killing them, until they devise of a plan to bind it in a circle in the woods. But their best efforts are undone when a boy is tricked into releasing it. Now it’s trapped in the house on Scarlet Lane, reliving its last kill until a new family moves in, and it begins to strengthen, making itself known to the ones living there though the ghosts of the previous occupants try to keep them safe.
