Summer, 1941. Murdoch, Illinois, in the Corn Belt of Ashford County. With the nation on the verge of a second World War, a young man finds work at the house of the wealthiest family in town. Lingering in the periphery is the shadowy figure of a local legend commonly known as the Slingerman, who some believe is behind the mutilation of three bodies. Is a ghoul from beyond the grave to blame?
