       Additional Information  
      Can Horror be fascinating? It's a simple question, yet, rarely asked. Yes, investigating horror and evil can, indeed, be fascinating. It can take you into the world of the supernatural, a kind of Disneyland for weirdoes. Of course, the pursuit of horror can also be dangerous. You can conceivably end up drained of your blood or gnawed to death by a carnivore werewolf. But isn't that the risk you take when you break from the traditional view of the world? What do you do when the world of make-believe becomes real? Do you deny its existence or do you face it straight on? When a fire in a Northern California meadow creates a mature growth of trees practically overnight, it grabs the attention of a hack writer and three of his colleagues. They soon unite with two detectives who can't explain how murdered victim are returning to their homes. Or how a dead gang-banger rose from his coffin to be shot by a swat team. Or how a statue of Christ in the local Catholic Church began crying, creating hundreds of worshipers. As the incidences grow,, the group realizes the woods are the source of the evil and they need to find a way to destroy it. But before they can, the mystery of its existence must be discovered, a mystery so deep that it takes them on an unexpected journey through time and space, heaven and hell, and good and evil.
