Widower Ben (Charles Bateman) is taking his young daughter (Geri Reischi) and new girlfriend (Ahna Capri) to visit a relative when they find a grizzly car accident by the highway. They report the incident to the sheriff (L.Q. Jones) in nearby Hillsboro, N.M., and discover the town in the grips of a deadly fear. In the past 72 hours, 26 people have died, and 11 children have gone missing. As Ben investigates, a local priest (Charles Robinson) informs him that a Satan-worshipping cult is to blame.
