In 1957, a strange unexplained force began to operate among the simple townsfolk in the small mining town of Hellgate. Events culminated with the rape of Josie, the sensuous daughter of the head of the community. From that day forth, the town closed down. Now, it’s 1989 and four college friends are on their way to spend their summer vacation at a ranger station. Matt, the group’s leader picks up a beautiful ethereal woman on the deserted mountain road. Introducing herself as Josie, she seduces him. Suddenly, Matt finds himself unearthing the evil secrets of the ghostlike, zombie-ridden mining town that welcomes newcomers to death.
