Don't turn over stones, unless you're prepared to encounter what's lurking beneath.


Aston, Washington isn't much more than a farming community, strewn with trees and fields full of cows. Located across from the local cemetery, sits Wicker Village, a trailer park with a dark secret that eleven-year-old Juanito wishes he hadn't uncovered. He's only lived there a week, yet something has begun to stalk him in the form of bizarre hallucinations. Though he doesn't know what's causing them, it's clearly not friendly, and has no intention of going away until it gets what it wants. Unfortunately for Juanito, all it seems to want is him.
