When Shelby comes under attack from a half-man half-pig demonic entity they try to flee but they find there is no way out until the previous owner of the house, Elias appears and saves them by using a word of dark power against the creature. From him they learn that the occupants of the house have been haunted by the pig-man and the butcher and her flock going back to the seventeen-hundreds. Even the killer sisters who once lived there were petrified of the butcher who murdered them both in sadistic ways. Through Elias’ research they realise every killing made by the butcher occurs during the same lunar cycle in October. The blood moon.
The cycle has already begun and Shelby and Matt are in grave danger. Elias tells them they must leave but Matt is reluctant to go without finding Flora so Elias takes them to where Priscilla plays in the hopes of finding the missing girl. When they trio stumble across some victims of the butcher hell bent on revenge things go horribly wrong. Matt and Shelby flee back to the house where Cricket Marlowe is waiting for them.
Cricket tells them he knows he can help and leaves the house in search of the butcher Thomasin, to try and make a deal with her to save the couple and their niece. Instead of the butcher, he finds the witch. Understanding she is the one who holds all of the spirits within her power he barters with her and offers her Matt to fulfil her needs. We are shown the true lost colony and see the butcher sacrificing Priscilla to keep their blissful lives. When the butchers’ son, Ambrose rebels against her human sacrifices the witch shows her what she must do in order to keep her power over them and to stop an uprising and ensure their loyalty to her for all of eternity.
Cricket leaves with the promise to return later that night to help them save themselves and rescue their niece before it is too late, but he doesn’t return. Matt goes to investigate some strange noises and is lured into the cellar by the witch who wants to claim her debt promised by Cricket Marlowe. He is brought to his senses by the sound of Shelby screaming for him. He sees the butcher and her army advancing on Shelby and when Priscilla buys a few precious seconds, Flora is able to run to safety.
But Cricket Marlowe is in the hands of the butcher and she is not in the mood to barter. Will they survive the blood moon?
