A true-crime novelist researching a murder makes a terrifying discovery amidst a cache of Super-8 films.

Past-his-prime true-crime writer Ellison Oswalt, desperate to initiate a career comeback, moves into the former home of a murdered family with his wife and children, intending to perform research into the family in question's killings that will serve as the basis of his latest novel. Upon viewing a cache of Super-8 films with seemingly-innocuous titles, however, he begins to piece together clues leading to a far more terrifying series of events than anyone could have possibly imagined, compounded by present-day terrors in the form of increasingly-unsettling demonic happenings.
