HOODOO MOON (A Nickle & Dime Adventure)
(Sci-fi Supernatural Action Thriller)
BEAU NICKLE and VIRGIL DIME (pronounced Dee-may as he prefers) are two good-ol' boys on Louisiana National Guard duty, tasked with evacuating the residents of Bayou Teche, Louisiana's biggest swamp, to safety as the biggest hurricane in history bears down on the Southeast coast. While dealing with stubborn swampers, the National Guard squad gets orders to search for a downed C130 Hurricane Hunter and rescue any survivors.
Local swamper BERNARD ROBIDEAUX and his common-law (and young) wife EPIPHANY agree to act as guides into the deep swamp. As they lead the Guardsmen deeper into the swamp, they relate the folklore and legends of old, warning of the monsters and horrors hiding out there.
While weathering a squall in an abandoned cabin, Bernard becomes convinced that Beau has designs on Epiphany and following a confrontation, is sent packing. Epiphany decides to continue guiding the Guardsmen; it's clear she has eyes for Beau. Bernard vows to avenge his honor and get Epiphany back.
The squad finds the downed C130 but no survivors, only signs of bloody carnage. As they try to unravel the mystery, Bernard attacks them with a couple of boatloads of ARMED CRONIES. The situation looks bad for the Guardsmen... when suddenly Bernard and his cronies are attacked by THINGS beneath the swampy waters. After Bernard and his cronies are taken care of, the things turn their attention on the National Guardsmen...
The squad is driven deep into the swamps as they struggle to defend themselves against the now all-too-real monsters and horrors of bayou folklore. Little did they know that what they would discover at the center of the swamp would be something beyond their wildest imaginings.
