Heebie jeebies! A zombie shocker with that Stephen King/haunted graveyard feel. The Walking Dead in a creepy little Brit town. Lock all your doors. There’s no place they won’t find you. For hundreds of years the people of Alderston have guarded a cursed secret. When Jamie’s family move into a house beside the graveyard, he’s quite right to feel creeped out. Strange visions. Terrible attacks. A horrible suspicion is rising in him. Are the great iron cages placed on top of the graves meant to keep the dead in, rather than keep robbers out? Scary as hell!
