A desperate young couple falls into the infernal clutches of a deadly cult in this rural shocker based on characters created by Stephen King. Stranded in the desert with little hope of rescue, the two weary travelers are initially relieved when they stumble across a run-down desert compound occupied by Preacher (Billy Drago) - a charismatic old man who reluctantly offers them sanctuary for the night. But when darkness falls, the faint sound of screams leads to a grim discovery. A mysterious cult operates out of this secluded compound, and the object of their adoration is a small boy possessed by a powerful entity. When the couple attempts to flee, all hell breaks loose.
