The Story

Poster On a summers day midday, the sun burning from the sky, The Good Girl (played by shorty, as seen in the famous movie "andruschka") watches TV inside the cool living room. After a while, she gets sick of watching tv - the batteries of the remote control mysteriously got low - and she has to switch it off herself (which means a lot of trouble, cause you have to get up to do so ;).
Due to a bug in the power circuits of the TV-device, that doesn't turn out to work very well - finally, The Good Girl has to pull the power connector.

A more attractive alternative to watching TV, so she thinks after another short interruption, is reading a good book: Reading "Stimmen der Angst" catapults her into a roller-coaster of psychotic haluzinations of spooky-scary things beeing not there at all, followed by FEAR becoming reality, mainfested in the malicious statue of the unholy "God of the Unbeing" (played by Azrael aka Sebek), a Zombie-creature out of your worst nightmare stepping out of the TV and eager to taste the Good Girls blood and tear her apart before she can say "Brummmuffeltufte".

The Zombie himself is an old, british lord from the 16th century, by pure bloodlust he killed his wife with a spoon and threw his 23 children down an endless staircase. Afterwards, he has been hanged, and was supposed to be dead. Now, he is back.

By the mobilisation of all her power, The Good Girl escapes - first - and a hunt through the shadows of a 1000 years old forest begins...
