John Martense (Blake Bailey) has just been released from prison after serving five years for a crime he did't commit. John wants to stay as far away from the wrong side of the law as he can ... but family ties won't let him. John gets a message to see SPECS (Vincent Schiavelli), an old friend and undertaker with a taste for larceny. Specs gives John a map of a cemetery where a corpse stuffed with a half a million dollars has been buried. John's father stole the money with his psychotic partner Bennett (Jon Finch) but hid the body, leaving it as a family legacy for his son to dig up. John reluctantly takes off for Leffertt's Corners, a small town with a terrible secret. For years the Corners have been torn apart - the people devoured by a race of cannibalistic genetic freaks living in the tunnels below the cemetery.
