1974, the town of Boston Mills, Ohio was turned into a ghost town practically overnight when the U.S. Department of Interior seized lands and condemned homes and properties in order to expand the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Over the years, a multitude of mysterious tales and ghost stories have sprung forth concerning the macabre remains, known as “Helltown.” Newspaper reporters Jerry Wolanski, from Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Susan Wong, of Toronto, Ontario, are both sent to Akron, Ohio by their respective editors, tasked with writing “fluff” Halloween pieces about Helltown. They meet under bizarre circumstances in a cemetery, and decide to join forces. Jerry and Susan soon find themselves experiencing first-hand Helltown’s reputation for horror, intrigue, and the supernatural.
