Overview

An Hilarious and Twisted Faustian Tale

It's the age-old story-sort of.

Maxwell Niemand, now known world wide as super-star Maximilian Faust, semi-wittingly made a deal with the devil to be a rock star. It was a heady ride full of great music, humongous parties, and piles of money, but when he discovered he wasn't the only one paying a price for his fun, fame, and glory he walked away in shame and remorse.

Hiding from his still loving fans, Max moves to a rickety antebellum mansion in a small town in Mississippi. The place is a decrepit, battered old mansion. A once magnificent southern belle, she's now more of a southern bag lady, dressed in faded glory and hiding lice. Max finds an odd feeling of kinship with the old lady and instead of burning her to the ground, he vows to restore her to her former glory.

Unfortunately, this bag lady carries a lot of baggage. Between the ghosts, the unquiet bodies, the bizarre visitors, and the "special" nature of the town, Maximilian is going to be pushed to the... er... max.
