What's it about? After lying dormant for years, the Hillford Conservatory curse has risen from its blood-soaked foundations. A student's corpse is found in the river with its arms cut off. A nurse at the local hospital is found dismembered while the walls of the hospital bleed. Students at the Conservatory have night terrors of being attacked by tiny blue creatures with scalpels and drills. Some students say they see and hear the voice of a recently deceased student as the ghost haunts the school. While the administration tries to save the reputation of the elite music conservatory, the gruesome secrets of Hillford begin creeping out. But when a second student goes missing, it's up to Dr. Martin Lewis and music teacher Melody Steinwick to piece together the past in order to unravel the secrets of the present. With death roaming the halls of Hillford, no one is safe.
