Release Date: February 29, 2020


young boy collapses on a playground. Surgeons carve out a giant tumor and half of his brain. Soon after, the boy's father locks him in a secret prison for his own perverse amusement. Through physical and psychological torture, he plans to transform his son into a monster, but he creates something wholly unexpected.

A research psychiatrist is on the verge of publishing a strange and beautiful new book, a collection of artists' renderings of the hallucinations of the clinically insane. Her book threatens to expose a terrible truth, and this truth will not set her free.

A mysterious infestation, intensely personal and deadly, is decimating communities across the nation. All that stands in its path is a ruthless government agency which may prove to be more lethal than the otherworldly parasites it aims to destroy.

The son is rising…

In The Hanover Block, you witnessed men doing nasty things on their lawns, the perverse pleasures they enjoy alone in their backyard sheds, workshops, and garages.

But what of the women, the wives, the church lady down the block, the home care nurses, the widows and daughters and sisters and mothers?

Women are doing strange things behind closed doors.

Why are their curtains drawn? Why are their basements off-limits? What dark secrets are they trading at prayer circles on Sunday nights?

And now shadowy government agents in dark suits are rapidly closing in, asking these same questions.

The brides are coming…
