You’ve never spoken about your encounter with the The Gnasher. You were lucky to escape alive, and you’ve always thought you were the sole survivor. But now, in your hunt for the truth, you’ve read about similar experiences on the Dark Web. Others who have survived. There are people out there, just like you, who know the truth. A monster exists. With your details added, a pattern has finally emerged. And like you, the others want this evil hunted down and destroyed. It’s time for payback.
