According to Variety, the plot tells the story of a beloved varsity quarterback who disappears during the “Satanic Panic” of the late 1980s. Moreover, a high school heavy metal band, struggling for gigs and fame, realizes they can capitalize on the town’s sudden interest in the occult. In fact, the outcasts decide to build a reputation as a Satanic metal band, until a bizarre series of kidnappings, murders and “supernatural activity” triggers a witch hunt that leads directly back to them.
