    • Synopsis
    • 1981. Ervil LeBaron, fundamentalist Morman serial killer, dies in Utah State Prison, leaving behind thirteen wives, fifty children, and a trail of bloody slayings.
      However this story does not end with Ervil; his legacy continues through his possessed cult family, who to this day are at large, honouring his hit list, one by one.
      Based on the chilling true story which to this day has the FBI on high alert, this is a tale of pure evil in the name of “God”.
      2010, Mexico. Meet JACQUELINE TARSA LEBARON, the final suspect on the FBI’s list. Since 2007 she has not been spotted. She is in hiding with the help of numerous disguises and aliases. By day she teaches English to a wealthy Mexican family, and by night she obsessively studies her father’s murderous ‘bible’ and conducts haunting prayer rituals at a LeBaron polygamous compound.
      Her room is filled with graphic photographs of those who have been killed – including young children. In the midst of it all is the “list” itself. The last kill is dated years ago. The time is coming to resume her father’s will.
      She talks to herself in her strange, high, squeaking voice: to God, her dead father and jailed brother. They speak back to her with only one message: murder. She polishes her gun. Her brainwashed twelve year old son, JONAH, helps her.
      Multitudes of strange children with vacant eyes run around the compound, herds of pregnant women, strange, demonic men. Jacqueline walks through this weird throng and they bow to her. “It is time to resume my father’s work” she tells them.
      Meanwhile, across the American south west and Mexico, there are countless people who have for decades feared for their lives, having received strange letters notifying them that they have ‘sinned’ are on the LeBaron ‘list’. DIANA NEWSOM sleeps with a gun under her pillow every night. She knows they will come back for her. She is one of the first to die; killed in her sleep with a gunshot to the head.
      Now a spate of slayings resumes again in earnest and the FBI are back on the case. Special agent MICK REILLY, veteran and the cop who captured Evril, and his partner special agent PATRICIA DERICCI, are assigned the case.
      Meanwhile, journalist Eve Lawson becomes curious about the LeBaron case. She devises a plan to infiltrate the Mormon compound posing as a polygamous wife, and is horrified by what she finds there. There is no ending to this horror story; Jacqueline and her cult are mad, armed and possessed with murderous fever. Most frightening of all, this is no mere horror story; it is real.
