DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED
In 1993, residents of the small town of Clear Lake, WI, fall victim to a strange and horrible disease. An influential local preacher blames the outbreak on the heresy and sins of some in the town. As loved ones sicken and die, the preacher’s fiery sermons cause a religious hysteria. As the residents of the town turn on each other, a group of high school students helps the preacher kidnap and kill accused heretics and sinners in a three-day spree. Fifteen years later, a documentary filmmaker convinces the students to return to the town, but when the filmmaker disappears and others turn up dead, it appears someone is still fighting the “Holy War.” (2008)
