“They live among us, they may even be a child playing on the street - but their intentions? They’re never kind.”
Some called them ‘Eric and Anna’, some even ‘Anna and Eric’ simply because they were high school sweethearts. They had a plan for everything; organised from the very hour of their wedding to the day of their death. Eric (Tveit) and Anna (Rabe) Spencer had the ideal marriage - everyone in the private suburban town of Eastwood, Virginia knew of their love as if it were part of town history.
Eric came from a very wealthy family, as the Spencers restored many of their old estates. Their money came from the steel industry, as that’s what most townsfolk say. Now a professor at Lancaster University and his wife, a doctor at Stafford Medical - their lives were going according to plan. All that was missing was…. a baby.
Eastwood had a rich history, dating back to the 1600’s where three founding fathers had come together to build a prosperous town for the people of America. There were three founding families that exist today - Margaret Stafford (Fairley) and family funds Virginia’s universities and research facilities. Alexander Montgomerie (Dance) and family controls almost all private and public banks. Richard York (Isaacs) and family oversee all land settlements and developments.
The Staffords, Montgomeries and Yorks were known for their devout Catholic faith and large families. Amongst children, grandchildren and distant cousins, the founding families kept a tight knit circle to inspire the rest of Eastwood.
After the death of Dimitri Spencer, Eric’s father, he begins to withdraw himself from Anna. He spends many late evenings at the University, stating that there are papers to grade and lectures to prepare. Anna believes that her father-in-law’s death must have been devastating, and leaves her husband to grieve in his own way.
At Stafford Medical Hospital, many patients are coming day in and but unable to come out. Most are children and the elderly, but the signs that their bodies bear are the same. Bleeding of the tongue and eyes, as if they were filled with black ink. Anna begins her research privately, not wanting to upset Eric further about things that are not ‘humanly possible’ or ‘real’.
In the early 1700’s, there had been several small families in Eastwood all under the surname Karadordevic. The founding families - the Stafford, Montgomeries, and Yorks had formed their own rebellion against the Serbian family. They believed that the Karadordevics were demons, preying on the innocent people of Eastwood. The founders began a demon hunt, severing every family member limb by limb and burning their bodies in acid and fire.
Several consecutive massacres follow, a blood bath every sixty six years. The news deems these murders as the ‘Founders Curse’. Every member of the Staffords, Yorks and Montgomeries are killed until one member is left from each family. When doctors examined the corpses, each body was bleeding from the tongue and had black eyes. The murders seemed unexplainable, as all demons were believed to have been destroyed by 1768.
At Lancaster University, rumours of Mors Vincit Omnia - a supposedly extinct elite society has returned. Most professors don’t believe in such a ridiculous scandal, but Eric does not lend his voice. He does nothing but continue his lectures, but his late evenings at Lancaster are not spent grading papers. Beneath the old stones that had built Lancaster, Eric has been assembling his own cult of students trained to kill.
Anna digs deeper, tracing the family trees of each patient that has come to the hospital with stark, black eyes. She finds that the children and elderly are distant relatives of the founding families. As each day passes, the new patients that are admitted into Stafford Medical are closer and closer in relation to the immediate families of Margaret Stafford, Alexander Montgomerie and Richard York. Someone is starting these massacres, and they’re getting help.
When Christmas holidays begin, Anna and her family witness Eric’s sudden outburst to fireworks and the fireplace. It seems as if Eric is pyrophobic, something that Anna never knew about her husband. Anna’s nieces and nephews begin to withdraw themselves from their uncle, stating that sometimes - Uncle Eric would yell at himself because he doesn’t want to show anyone his black eyes.
At first, Anna refuses to believe that her husband is some reincarnation of the Karadordevic family. When the Spencer Family estate fails to catch the interest of potential buyers, Anna discovers that the land had been where countless members of the Karadordevics were burned. Anna becomes desperate, unable to bridge the connection between the Spencers and the family of demons that once made Eastwood their home. She contacts Andrew Charles (Oldman), a historian to aid her in her research.
Professor Charles believes that demons have existed long before good had supposedly triumphed over evil. Demons blend in to their surroundings, copying some of the happiest, kindest people that we may know. The founders were never able to destroy what had haunted their land so long ago, they tried but demons are cunning. They too, could procreate - change their names, alter documents and specific physical characteristics.
In the weeks that follow, Anna believes that she is pregnant with her first child. Pregnant, but it is not a child.
