Synopsis

After hearing an about-to-be-hanged murderer's story about some hidden stolen loot he left in the care of his two young kids, the murderer's cell-mate, a real psychopath, is released on a petty crime and embarks on a journey to find the killer's family in the haunting masquerade of a travelling preacher. Once there, he terrorizes them with some sadistic psychological torment to get to where the money is.
