After a move to their Uncle Ollie’s farm, Maggie and her camera further explore the dark and sinister foundation of her brother’s fears to the tune of chilling revelations.
The film is currently in preproduction and scheduled for a 2015 release through Dismal Productions in association with MOnsterworks66.
