Something hideous is about to happen in the village of Shillingham. Why does crazy Frank Warwick shoot at the workmen taking the old gibbet from the crossroads? Why should the villagers feel a sudden shiver of terror? Why are the local children draw, as if by a silent command, to play around the gibbet? The unearthly fog surrounding the village is thickening, killing the wildlife and cutting the villagers off from the outside world. Beneath the earth, something is stirring…and as the bulldozers roll on unchecked, a dark and terrible evil imprisoned below the gibbet for centuries slowly awakes 0 burning for revenge against mankind. Shillingham is about to become Hell on Earth.
