Denise Farber and her family have returned to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, wagering the last of their family's money on converting an old, rundown house into a bed and breakfast. Nothing seems to work around the place, which doesn't seem too weird to Denise, neither do the unexplained noises. But when floors collapse, deadly objects rain down, and she hears creepy voices, it's clear to Denise that something more sinister is lurking. When Denise discovers an old comic book concealed in the attic --- the lost, final project of a famous artist who disappeared in the 1950s --- she thinks she might finally find some answers.
