The serene picturesque qualities of the town of Lake Forest, could inspire in the casual observer a Norman Rockwell style feeling. However, every seven years the tranquil setting is disrupted by a curse. A curse, one that turns this quiet little town to place of abject horror. Lake Forest is now on the cusp of it's seventh year, and a series of gruesome murders have rocked the community. The new chief of police, Ben Chambers, now has the unenviable task of solving these crimes, and saving this community. When a group of what appears to be government agents comes to offer assistance, questions begin to emerge as to what is truly happening. As answers are unveiled, it becomes apparent that we might not be alone in the universe, and that the governments of the earth have known about it all along. Can Ben save Lake Forest? Are the government agents here to lend a helping hand? Or are they here to simply contain the devastation to a minimal amount of collateral damage?
