Summary
Based on authentic historical records, this gives a chilling account of the disaster that befell one small town in Wisconsin in the 1890's. Black River Falls seems gripped by a peculiar madness, and its weekly newspaper is full of bizarre stories of violent death and wildly eccentric behavior. As epidemics decimate the infant population and the local economy collapses, the townsfolk are haunted by ghosts, possessed by demons, and terrorized by a cocaine-snorting, window-smashing madwoman.
