Imagine a novel so overwhelmingly hypnotic, so tremendously horrifying that it paralyzes its audience with fear and turns its most sensible readers insane. When Sutter Cane, the author of this disturbing bestseller, disappears, an insurance investigator (Sam Neill) hired to find him discovers far more than he could ever imagine in an eerie town that seems to be ripped straight from the pages of one of Cane’s books. The final installment of John Carpenter’s Apocalypse Trilogy (preceded by THE THING and PRINCE OF DARKNESS) is a spellbinding slip through the cracks between reality and the terrifying unknown.
