Grief has limits, whereas apprehension has none. For we grieve only for what we know has happened, but we fear all that possibly may happen.

THE NIGHT THEY CAME FOR LACY
Last Survivor Of Car Crash Is Haunted By Vengeful Ghosts
SCENE OPENS ON as she rounds a corner and enters a cemetary. She looks utterly devastated. She visits some graves, her eyes filling up with tears as she passes the headstones of, and Aaron Hands.
As she says a silent prayer, we flash back to one year earlier. Lacy drives her car while her boyfriend Aaron sits in the passenger seat and Lacy’s friends Joanna and Katrina are in the back.
They’re on their way back from a night out. The girls want to hit another local nightspot, but Aaron, annoyed with the rowdy antics of Joanna and Katrina, insists that Lacy take him home. The girls argue back that Aaron has no sense of fun as Lacy tries to convince him to come out. With the music blaring and everyone talking at once, the atmosphere in the car quickly becomes chaotic. As Lacy takes her eyes off the road for a moment, the unthinkable happens.
The car is totaled, everyone but Lacy glassy eyed, the life drained from their bodies…
Back in the present day, Lacy is at home, wracked with grief and guilt. Suddenly, disembodied ghostly whispers begin to fill her home. A candle is mysteriously blown out. Lacy tries to doze, but is roused by a terrifying sound coming from under her bed. Scared, she investigates. To her terror, she finds Aaron’s necklace.
Desperate for answers, Lacy goes to the cemetery. In frustration, she throws the necklace on the ground. Suddenly, a hand reaches out from the ground, from the depths, grasping the necklace. As Lacy shrieks in terror, two more hands shoot out of the dirt and a moment later, Aaron, Katrina, and Joanna emerge from their graves.
Her friends are back, but they are now something…else, and they’ve come for Lacy…
