With the help of womanizing friend Nolan Wulf, widower Vic Kimmler packs up his bags and his two little girls and hits the road to take over a stud farm on the Colorado border. What no one told him is that it's haunted, and a town full of maniacs wants him to take over where his father left off.
What they find when they arrive is a desperate beauty named Myra and her genius son Cal living on goat's milk, eating carrots, and praying for help. Vic's father's house is filled with dust, guns, ancient furniture and an unsettling presence with dripping wet hair. The town isn't much better, it's run by a tribe of elderly men who drive big cars, talk about 'hunts' and are strangely eager to make Vic's acquaintance. They don't like the well-muscled, trigger-happy Nolan, and he is suspicious as hell of all of them, including Myra. With genius Cal at his side Nolan is determined to find out just what the hell is going on, if only he can stop thinking about what Myra looks like in a dress...
