Proofrock, Idaho is a small town with a big history of bloodshed, and slasher movie superfan Jade Daniels recognizes the signs of a new cycle of violence beginning.
Two tourists are missing. A body has washed up on the shore of Indian Lake. Most promising is the beautiful girl who just moved to town. She’s kind and innocent, basically the perfect Final Girl.
After a decade of being the town weirdo, Jade is ready to pop some popcorn and watch a lunatic wreak vengeance. But is she content to just watch?
Stephen Graham Jones came up on horror flicks and Jade is definitely a vehicle for his encyclopedic knowledge of the genre. She’s also a mess of hurt, hope, and black-hearted humor—the kind of underdog that you hope doesn’t stumble into the path of a machete or an industrial nail gun (the gory climax features both of these weapons, and more).
