The town of Eatonville, Florida is like many American cities that’s been left behind by progress. It’s the forgotten domain of 2200 people struggling to survive. For the past nine years, every October, things get worse when masked murderers unleash a killing spree. Eatonville’s been renamed Slasherville by public opinion and year 10 is about to begin.

Former high school basketball star Alex Miller lost his father the first year, then his shot at college stardom the next. Since then, it’s been a game of survival that takes him from his job at a superstore to caring for his mom who’s been catatonic since the death of her husband.

It’s the start of the tenth October, and Alex Miller, the son of the first Slasherville victim, is a failed basketball star taking care of his catatonic mother and working an unfulfilling job at a superstore. However, after a late shift, Alex’s friend Davon becomes the first victim of this year’s cycle.
