Once a year a local farm in Laurel Delaware transforms into what some call a brutally morbid nightmare the likes of which has not been seen or recorded in history. Rumor has it that TJ Scott bought the farm after a long stay at a local mental hospital. The farm is located just off route 13 in Laurel Delaware close enough to lore passing visitors of the busy highway and on to the farm property. What happens to those visitors after coming onto the farm has never been discovered.
