In an unnamed town somewhere on the American prairie, children are dying. Terrible creatures, some from this world and some from the next, are appearing at the edge of town. Bedtime has become deadtime. Strange diseases are infecting people. Voices from beyond the grave are whispering.
Into town arrives a special delivery from Rumania: a wooden cart in a packing box. Out pops a pair of witch parents and a thousand-year-old teenage witch daughter. They paint an old house on a hill jet black and set about trying to stop the monsters. But it will take everything they have to end the supernatural evil that grips the town . . .
