In 1691 the town of Crossfall taught the witch Thessaly how to die. They beat her, shot her, hung her but nothing worked. When they tried to bury her alive Thessaly set the field against them. The first man died as a gust of wind harrowed the meat from his bones. A root,flung like a dirty javelin, cut a second down. Many deaths followed. The Preacher Fell impaled the witch upon her very own broom but she dragged him down into the field to wait three more centuries.
Three hundred years later Maddy Harker murders her bullying husband Vic. She buries him in the field as she buried her abusive father years before that. The very same field where the revenant spirit of Thessaly Cross lies waiting.
In three days Vic will rise again - a thing of dirt, bone and hatred.
