Mike, Arnie and Cindy Reeves are throwing a party while their parents are away. They receive a phone call from their parents on their way home but the phone goes dead as the parents enter the small desert town of Long Hand. The parents fail to return that night and the children decide they must go searching for them. A mysterious Indian warns them away from Long Hand, saying that it is inhabited by the dead and can only be entered in a dream. Inside the town, the children find the inhabitants believing and behaving as though it was 1882. As they try to find their parents, they realize the town is a living thing that wants to trap them there. The town’s denizens try to get them to make a promise that will cause them to become one of the enslaved undead.
