In the small town of Rocksville, Maryland, something strange is going on at the local cemetery. For the past few months, the graves have been disturbed, the headstones toppled, and the bodies of the dead exhumed. The police have no leads and no suspects, but they do have one eyewitness: John Glass, a mentally challenged man who lives in a trailer park on the edge of town.

John is the only one who saw the grave-robber, and he’s been having nightmares about the man ever since. When the police bring John in for questioning, he’s so scared that he can’t even remember his own name. But with the help of his social worker, John gradually begins to piece together the events of that night.

As John’s story unfolds, it becomes clear that the grave-robber is not just after the bodies of the dead, but after their souls as well. And John is the only one who can stop him.

Hellacious Acres: The Case of John Glass is a horror movie with a message. It’s a story about overcoming your fears, about standing up for what’s right, and about the power of faith. John Glass may be mentally challenged, but he’s also the only one who can save his town from the evil that’s been stalking the graveyard.
