One by one they walk to the podium to tell their story. Family members whose relatives became infamous for crimes of unspeakable violence and unbridled insanity. They unweave their tales to an auditorium filled with young medical students tasked with writing extensive essays on the criminally insane mind. The victims of the gene pool step forward, some young and some old, some in good spirits and others solemn and grim, and regale the fascinated group with tales that include:
A vacation cruise turns into a living nightmare for both the precipitants and the FBI agent who is tasked to investigate it's horrific outcome?.
A young man whose family heritage includes murder and bouts with cannibalism struggles to control the urges that drive him towards the very edge of madness?
A veteran prison guard finds that the tower duty he usually dreads as being boring and routine is transformed into a shift of stark, unrelenting terror on a cold and foggy night?
A quiet, isolated country retirement home opens its doors to mystery and murder when a mysterious new resident arrives?
A teenaged boy and his family are caught unprepared when a winter storm of historic proportions blankets their small southern town?
A resident psychologist treats a mysterious, troubled patient who is tortured by visions of gruesome murder and soon finds himself a little too personally involved in the case..
Are the traits of madness really drawn from one's family heritage or do the flashes of insanity all humans display only show themselves in random cases? Witness a strong argument to the former as the individuals in the audience will attest to by the time the last tale is told.
Every family has buriedskeletons locked away. Some simply refuse to remain in the coffin?.
