A wife and child have gone missing in the small town of Devil’s Gate, North Dakota. While all indicators point to husband Jackson Pritchard as the prime suspect, pushy outsider FBI agent Daria Francis instinctively feels something else is going on in this incestuous hamlet and together with deputy Colt Salter goes to investigate. And indeed they do track down Pritchard, a man caged in unrelenting darkness and despair. But nothing is what it seems in this mind-bending carnival of delights featuring hi-tone scares, unhinged performances, astonishing special effects, wonderful sound design and dizzying twists and turns.
