Chris and Em are faced with an unimaginable horror. To save their five year old daughter Kat, they have to discover how to destroy the worst evil ever faced by mankind. With the help of two old friends, Jared and Carrie, they set out to defeat the evil that threatens to destroy their lives and the lives of everyone in the area; perhaps even the entire world.
When they discover the pond in which the entity has been incubating for the last twenty-five years, they quickly realize that the only way to completely rid the world of this evil is to destroy the pond.
Jared hires two men who he knows to be proficient with explosives. But when they attempt to blow up the pond, they make the horrifying discovery of the womblike sac that has held its 'master' through years of incubation.
"The evil started about twenty five years ago," Chris began, his voice trembling slightly, as he forced himself to recall the horrifying events of that time, long ago. "What I remember most are the snakes, Em, lots of snakes. The fish around the area were all dying, they were washing up on the shores of all the lakes and ponds within a fifteen mile radius because the population of snakes was continuing to grow at such an alarming rate, forcing the fish out of the water, up on to the shores to die. The strange thing is, the worst of it seemed to be out by Bailey’s Pond, at least it seemed strange to me at the time. Later on, it began to make more sense why it was so much worse out there. But at the time I remember thinking it was kind of weird because Bailey’s Pond isn’t really close to town, so I couldn’t understand why the people in town would be affected as much as they were by something that far away."
