Rosemary’s Baby meets Revolutionary Road…
on the border between the necropolis of Colma, home to over two million dead souls and 1,794 somewhat live ones -- and the gritty industrial working-class town of South City --
In this literary/horror mash-up, an adopted boy, an overworked techie, a punk couple, a large python, and the original outcast, all come together darkly in Sunny California.
