The church was constructed in the 1860s under the guidance
of Reverend Wendell McFall. His sermons declared the existence of God’s Second
Son- whose mission is to undo all of Jesus’ work on Earth. McFall had the
church painted red to summon the First Son to defeat the Second. But when he
sacrificed a child to support his rantings, his congregation hung him from the
rafters of his own sanctuary...
For twenty years, the red church has stood empty. Crumbling to ruin, it has become a site for Halloween pranks and the setting for ghost stories- including one about the thing that lives in the bell tower, a creature being blamed for a brutal murder that occurred in the church’s gravveyard...
Now, Archer McFall has purchased the church to house his Temple of the Two Sons, whose zealous worshippers will stop at nothing to see the Second Son return to his rightful glory...

So black that Ronnie couldn’t see his hand in front of his face.
He was in a box, a coffin, with nothing but the hard thud of his heart to mark the passing of time.
“I’m scared,” Tim whispered.
“Shh” Ronnie said. “They’ll hear us.”
Though they already knew the two of them were locked in the vestry. It wasn’t as though there were a whole lot of places to hide inside the red church.
Ronnie finally opened his eyes. The weak gleam of moon fought through a small window set high in the back wall. He could barely make out Tim’s pale face, though his eyes and mouth were steeped in shadows. He pressed his ear to the door again.
She has out there.
