When the cosmic fabric separating the dimensions rips open and spits the inhabitants of Purgatory into his hometown, the initial rip is so forceful it kills everyone and everything that isn't indoors or underground. The only thing that saves 14-year-old Jack is that he just happened to be in the school basement at the time.
The final line from the old children's prayer, I pray the Lord my soul to take, is infused with new meaning as creatures from Purgatory appear to be interested in only one thing: fresh, unsullied souls to consume. Eventually, Jack stumbles across a few other survivors—an alcoholic lawyer, a deaf pit bull named Snake, and a small-town real estate agent. Together they are forced to make their final stand. But will anyone survive the onslaught of the TAKERS.
