November, 1940 - May, 1941
Starting with Emily Hollands, a total of seven children are abducted from the area surrounding Burkittsville, Maryland.

May 25, 1941 An old hermit named Rustin Parr walks into a local market and tells the people there that he is "finally finished." After Police hike for four hours to his secluded house in the woods, they find the bodies of seven missing children in the cellar. Each child has been ritualistically murdered and disemboweled. Parr admits to everything in detail, telling authorities that he did it for "an old woman ghost" who occupied the woods near his house. He is quickly convicted and hanged.

FAST FACTS

~Characters of Transitus Fluvii were found written on walls of Rustin Parr's House. Transitus Fluvii is a Hebrew-dervied alphabet created by mystics and secret socities during the middle ages.
~Some believe that Kyle Brody killed or forced Rustin Parr to kill those seven children. For more on this visit www.rustinparr.com
~Regardless of wild speculations and beliefs, the three student filmakers in the movie WERE actors..They did not die, they are alive and well. The movie mixed history and legend with Hollywood and sometimes it is hard to tell where one ends and the other begins.
