Somewhere in the forgotten forests of New York state, an ancient and mysterious church holds a dark history. Fanaticism, corruption, and sacrifice taint the once sacred grounds of the holy site, yet as time passed, the dark events committed there faded from the memory of all who might have known.

Now, four men, tied through mutual interest and criminal intent, have been forced to seek sanctuary as they evade the local law enforcement after a nearly botched robbery. As they wait for the storm to pass, a new cloud begins to darken the horizon, one that contains a horror that will lay bare each of their troubled pasts and fears. Soon, they will all but forget the threat of incarceration, as their minds and bodies are thrust into what can only be described as hell.
