About the Series
The series follows its source material, and if you have already read the book, you know the drill. And for the ones who haven’t, let me introduce the backbone to the story. The story follows a girl who could have possibly been another victim of the serial killer. However, this killer cannot be connected with any of the murders because the murders are not taking place in the same time period.
A killer is Hunter Curtis, who finds access to a house. It is set in the depression- era, and something you must know about this era is that it was dark and everyone was desperate. So, when this man finds access to this house that can take him to any era in time, he is ready to take up any caveat.
By a stroke of luck, a girl survives, a journalist in 1989 called Kirby, and the hunter becomes haunted as she tries to find her truths traumatized by her past.
