Synopsis

There’s a killer loose in the haunted house. A grave digger. And he has a shovel. Opal finds herself on the run from his murderous rampage, as she fights her way through the haunt to warn everyone left alive that the scares being offered tonight are real and real deadly. All the while, The Sexton trails closely behind, dragging his shovel. The sod is wet, he says. The sod is heavy. And he will collect the bodies.
