A Midwestern town is plagued by a series of murders and a young amateur sleuth is determined to unmask the killer, in this adaptation of the cult novel by Dan Wells.

Sixteen year old John Cleaver (Max Records) is not your average teenager; obsessed with serial killers and monsters and wrangling with his own psychopathic feelings, John keeps his urges at bay through regular sessions with his therapist, his close friendship with elderly neighbour Mr Crowley (Christopher Lloyd) and lending his mother a hand at the family undertakers business. But when their community becomes gripped with a series of grisly, seemingly connected murders, John can’t help but be drawn into staging his own investigation, using his sociopathic tendencies to connect and come face to face with the monster that haunts their small town.
