Take from the Weeping Willow, and the Weeping Willow will take from you…

When Birdie arrives at Willow Creek Mansion for an artist’s residency, she believes the grant could finally unlock her dream of a photography career. Yet she soon senses something sinister lurks on the southern grounds. 

Fifty years ago, the contemptible benefactress disappeared, leaving behind her blood-stained will. The only instructions? Five artists of different disciplines must create works inspired by the eponymous willows of the area. 

Is Birdie willing to pay the ultimate price for her passion? 

Whispering willows… ghoulish paintings… slithering roots…

The foundation of Willow Creek is not at rest. As Birdie rushes to discover what’s buried beneath, she’ll be forced to trust what she cannot see and fight for more than her life.

Don’t miss this chilling southern gothic ghost story!

“Witness, o tree of willow weeping,
We impassioned five seek our reaping.
Seer, singer, speaker, sculptor, server,
Bestow upon us the fruits of our fervor.
Willow, our body of work you inspire,
Imbue us with inspiration and fire.”

Marcel Owen, The Haunting of Willow Creek
