A small farming village falls under a terrible curse after a desperate couple sacrifices their malformed child in a ritual meant to bring the community a bounty of crops. The year is 1831. As Halloween approaches, the citizens of Hollow Glen cast their disease crops into a massive fire in hopes that their fields will be blessed and fertile during the coming year. The annual ritual is tainted, however, when the parents of an ailing, disfigured child cast the boy into the ceremonial blaze. The grotesque creature born of that unconscionable act becomes the bane of the community for years to come, never resting as his hunger for vengeance grows more intense with each passing day.
