Overview
Master of horror John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) is back with his "scariest movie to date!"*

Sutter Cane (Jurgen Prochnow, The Seventh Sign) is the best-selling author whose newest novel is literally driving readers insane. When he inexplicably vanishes, his publisher (Academy Award® - winner Charlton Heston) sends special investigator John Trent (Sam Neill, Jurassic Park, Dead Calm) to track him down. Drawn to a town that only exists in Cane's books, Trent crosses the barrier between fact and fiction and enters a terrifying world from which there is no escape.

Inspired by the tales of H.P. Lovecraft, this shocking story is, in the words of its acclaimed director, "horror beyond description!"
