Imagine waking up in a darkened room. A bright light flashes on over your head and you find yourself naked, bleeding, and tied down to a cold, metal autopsy table. A giant mad man, dressed as a surgeon, enters the room. Your eyes follow him as he makes his way to a nearby stereo. He pushes a button and the melodic sounds of a Beethoven piece fills the air. He turns to look at you but with his surgeons cap and mask covering his face, all you can see are his dark, void eyes. He removes a blue towel from a metal stand, revealing several pristine surgical devices... and an old rusty pocket knife... He glides his latex covered finger over the tattoo on your chest and his eyes wrinkle as he smiles beneath his mask. As the classical music rages on, he picks up a shiny, metal scalpel from the table and you begin to scream as it punctures the flesh just above your tattoo.
Deep within the Manistee National Forest, in the weeks leading up to Halloween, the secluded logging village of Walkerville, Michigan is thrust into a nightmare as locals start disappearing, only to have their bodies, or body parts, found; naked, pale, and with deep patches of flesh seemingly ripped out of them where there once were tattoos. The local sheriff and deputies must enlist the help of Captain Parker and the Grand Rapids Homicide Department. While interviewing Syndi, the most beautiful woman in Walkerville, Captain Parker vows to keep her safe... but can he keep his promise? The village sheriff and Captain Parker desperately try to work on the bizarre cases in their own distinctive ways, to find the person or persons responsible for the grisly murders before other unfortunate villagers suffer the same fate.
