The book summary tells us that Rotterdam Home is a hospice for teenagers with terminal illnesses. As the teenagers wait to die, five of them create a club. They start gathering at midnight to tell stories of intrigue and horror. One night, the teens make a scary pact. They agree that the first of them to die will make every effort to contact others in the group from beyond the grave.

Horror fans can expect to see several noted horror film and series actors. These include Zach Gilford (The Purge: Anarchy), Heather Langenkamp (Nightmare on Elm Street) and Samantha Sloyan The Haunting of Hill House, Hush).
