It was once an asylum for the mentally ill, where therapies were thinly veiled tortures, and the afflicted rarely recovered. But the institutions most notorious incident occurred when the patients turned against their captors, setting many of the buildings on fire, and killing numerous staff members. For nearly twenty years it sat vacant before its reconstruction to house criminals...Tim Saget is fresh from the correctional officers training facility as the newest recruit to walk the halls of The Hill. But hes been there before - in disturbing dreams that have him wandering through the buildings eerie corridors. Even stranger is the increasingly erratic behavior of the inmates, who appear to be suffering varying degrees of madness.As a dense, suffocating fog rolls in to enshroud the facility, Tim begins to uncover The Hills darkest secrets - one more horrific than the next. It is now terrifyingly clear that the prisoners are channeling the spirits of the patients who once lived there. They want freedom just as much as their human hosts do - and they believe Tim is their key...
