Veteran sci-fi and action stalwart Mark L. Lester (Commando, Class of 1984) helms this period supernatural horror opus, inspired by one of history's oddest mysteries: the question of what happened to the "Lost Colony" of Roanoke Island in 1587. In Lester's version of the tale, three demonic witches arise from the netherworld to claim the settlers, and attack the soldiers from multiple directions. The spirits include the Witch Wraith, who exerts apocalyptic control over the nearby forest; the Viking Wraith, who slices through the front lines with a broadsword, and the Reaper Wraith, who disembowels victims with a scythe. As devastation erupts and the colonists meet gory ends, hope arises in the form of Ananias Dare, who valiantly attempts to decipher the enigma of the wraiths, exploit their Achilles' Heel, and send the vile spirits back to the fiery cauldron of Hell.
