The emergency room is no stranger to death, but not like this. Normally, a death serves as a final ending. Now, as a parasite straight out of hell slithers from the body of a serial killer, death has only begun its terrifying, grisly rampage through the small hospital and town.
A surgeon, a fugitive, a pregnant mother, a hospital worker-each serves as host for this spawn of the Devildevil, driven to commit the vilest of acts. Murder, infanticide, nymphomania, cannibalism-their flesh and bones become puppets in service of Satan's grotesque theater. Some brave few may try to stand against this evil, but as the Darklings closes in around them, are they digging for clues or digging their own graves?
