When Michael McIntyre staggers home, red-eyed and disorientated, his family thinks he is suffering from sunstroke. No one realises that Michael has unwittingly released a powerful evil force that will gradually engulf them all. Are the fagile bonds that hold the McIntyre family together strong enough to resist the nightmare creature at the heart of the evil?
