Anthony is drawn to the forest where his father's lifeless body had been found hanging a year earlier. He encounters there the spirits of performers from a Civil War era travelling show and they have a dark secret and a darker need for souls to sustain themselves.
I enjoyed the story and the haunting imagery of the travelling show. But, I thought the climax came on too quickly almost to the point of being anti-climactic. The battle between the story's hero and the vengeful performers seemed rushed and incomplete.
