Everybody’s got something to hide, but a group of mischievous high school kids are about to find out just how far some people might go to protect their secrets.
It’s all fun and games at Pam Sweeny’s party as a group of teens play a game called The Secret. They randomly dial a number, utter the phrase “I know your secret” and tell the person on the other end to meet them at a local park at midnight. They then head off to the park to hide out and see if anyone shows up.
When Pam’s turn comes around, she’s much more interested in Tommy Morris, the new guy at school, then in what she’s doing, but ends up with a very creepy sounding man on the other end who’s response is a shudder-inducing “How do you know my secret?”
And when the teens all head off to the park, expecting no one to show, they are caught off guard when an ominous hooded figure appears.
After they beat a hasty retreat, all figure the game is over — until Pam’s phone rings and a voice asks: “How do you know my secret?”
Dark Horse publisher Mike Richardson and artist Jason Shawn Alexander (Damn Nation) deliver a perfect chill-inducing thriller that will have you sleeping with the lights on.
