Katie McGrath (Jurassic World, Dracula, Merlin) stars as Sarah Bennett, a young woman who returns to the small town where she was born, only to find herself the centerpiece in a series of horrifying copycat murders based on the widely known grisly killings of her parents.

Sarah finds herself questioning everything and everyone around her, including her husband Dylan (Brandon Jay McLaren; Graceland, The Killing), her grandmother Brenda Merritt (Wendy Crewson; Saving Hope, Revenge), family friend Cam Henry (Steve Byers; The Man in the High Castle) and the town’s police chief, Iain Vaughn (Dean McDermott; Ecstasy, CSI).
