From the writers of ALIEN, this thriller is the story of a mysterious coastal town called Potters Bluff. For years the town has harbored a dark secret, one that the town sheriff has just stumbled across. It seems that a number of strangers who have crossed through Potters Bluff have not only been brutally murdered, but have turned up in town as locals after being killed. Sure that there must be some explanation, the sheriff and the town mortician try to uncover the mystery and find something more shocking than they could have imagined.
