In life, people can be tormented by their own crimes. The same may be true in death – angry spirits become imprinted on the place where they lost their humanity.
In the town of Wilder, Kentucky, a nightclub stands on the banks of the Licking River ‚Äì one of the few waterways in the world that flows true north. Club owner Bobby Mackey has heard tales that the river draws murderers and Satanists to the area like a great magnet, and that there have been times when the waters ran red with blood. Bobby doesn't believe the stories, even after his wife Janet and employee Carl are attacked by the dead.
Deep in the bowels of the club stands an old slaughterhouse well, harboring an evil older than the building itself. When the time is right, it will rise to attack Janet‚Äôs unborn baby, and claim Carl's immortal soul.
