When rookie cop, Samantha Sykes, joined the small police force of Walden, Oregon, she wasn't prepared for the horror that would soon sweep in and leave the small town paralyzed with terror. When the decapitated head of a sixteen year old local girl turns up in a garbage can behind the town's only cafe, the police soon learn that the killer also abducted a six year old child. The sudden violent crime in a town that rarely sees more than a “drunk and disorderly” complaint begins to awaken frightening memories from Samantha's past. Convinced it is just the brutality of the crime and the fear for the missing child, Samantha tries to dismiss the nagging feeling inside her. But when a second child goes missing, the nagging feeling returns and begins to fill her with a fear she hasn't felt since she was seven years old. With no proof that this has anything to do with her past, Samantha continues to tell herself that she is just on edge and over stressed. Then Samantha checks her answering machine one evening and receives a message from the past that chills her blood. Soon after, the message is gone and she wonders if it was really there to begin with. But when the killer returns to the scene of the first crime and leaves another message, she knows she wasn't hallucinating. But how does she explain to her boss and her partner that a dead killer has returned from the grave and is right there in their small, quiet, unsuspecting town?
