  • A garage band and their loyal fans disappear as part of the fulfillment of a prophecy
  • An outpost of Roman Legionnaires is terrorized by an ancient evil
  • Two alien children forge a unique pact with two Earth children
  • A strange door opens in the middle of a burning summer day
  • A seasoned detective interrogates a vengeful angel responsible for the haunting of an entire city
