In the spring of 2012, the US government captured a creature that wasn't supposed to exist. Faced with a being of myth and nightmares, they built a secret facility half a mile beneath the earth to  lock it away. But the scientists and caregivers charged with observing this monster have been selected because of the control the government has over them more than their skills. Every one of them is emotionally damaged or morally ambiguous, and they are so consumed with tragedies from their past they barely notice the humanity of the monster or monstrousness of their own actions. And as they seek redemption for their sins and failures, they are completely blinded to the machinations of the sinister corporation plotting against them all.


What do we do when we have horrible secrets?  
 We bury them deep inside.
What do we do when we find that monsters really exist?  
 We bury them deep in the ground.  
But sometimes the secrets are worse than the monsters.
 And nothing stays buried forever.

[Rated PG13 - NOT FOR ALL AUDIENCES - Contains coarse language, scenes of violence, and scenes of mild sexuality and drug use.]

I'm already loving Mr. 8. And I got a feeling this is also going to be good. P.S. Mr. Thirteen, please check description. Is it really supposed to be "course language", not "coarse"? (Sorry, I know it's not relevant to the story. I'm O.C.) :-)
