Jacob Crawley, leader of the Divine Path cult in Meridian, North Carolina, was an evil man who tormented six of the group’s children and prophesied that they would each be killed by the thing they feared the most.  Five years later epileptic Allison begins having seizure-induced visions of death and Harold–who was afraid of drowning–is found drowned in a tobacco field, far from any source of water.  Creepy!  The survivors, now teenagers, reunite to try to escape death.
