The Legend of DarkHorse County
As Jon (Shawn Welling) and Joy Ford (Joy Willard) move into the small town of DarkHorse, mysterious and supernatural occurrences threaten to tear the town apart. Teenage girl abductions and a chain of serial killings lead to a divide between the forensic science of the law and the religious lore of the locals. But when Joy's nieces Presley and Chachi Bishop (famed international superstar dancer Olivia 'ChaChi' Gonzales) are abducted, they must race to find the abductor and in turn come face to face with a monster.
