Synopsis

A death metal song bewitches a husband and wife into strange circumstance in this one-act horror written for adult audiences. Zabby Sheridan finds herself transformed from a loving wife into a murderous monster after hearing a song playing over and over again on the radio, and having her husband turn against her. She summons creatures from beyond, Those Things, who attack and eat anyone she wishes at her command. Before long, everyone is on the menu.
