Why wasn’t she at the mortuary... awaiting her burial? After all, Mary Winston had been declared dead two days before. The incident is only the first in a series of mysterious attacks in the small Scottish town of Middlesbury. Dead bodies go missing. A cemetery caretaker is devoured alive. An ancient curse is about to be unleashed...

“John Sinclair” is a reboot of Europe’s longest running horror series.
