A man drives to the crossroads in Midnight, TX and shoots
himself. The locals can't figure it out. A vampire, Lemuel,
tells his group of confidants that the man was not the first
suicide. But, it takes a woman almost killing herself with a
ceremonial dagger to seal the final nail on the coffin.
All the while Lemuel, the vampire from earlier, is left trying
to decipher an ancient book written in an unknown language,
and a local witch is hearing a voice talk to her. The locals
must figure out what is happening before more people die,
releasing untold horrors onto the town.
