The Suppression of Tomorrow
After barely surviving an accident a man sees the twisted visions of a horrible crime he witnessed as a boy. Now he's forced to face the truth and stop his father from carrying out a series of brutal murders.
With Janice dead, Judd sees Steve force him into crashing his SUV into Tomorrow River and throw Janice’s lifeless body in behind it. But when he sees Judd is not dead Steve does the unthinkable. He drowns his own son!
When police pull Judd’s SUV from the river they find Janice dead and Judd alive, barely. As Steve hoped, the police think Judd killed Janice but if he lives, Judd will expose the truth. Hospitalized and comatose inside of a coma, Judd sees the crimes his father will commit including Steve’s plan to pull the plug on his life support system.
Unable to defend himself in the material world, Judd relies on the only thing any of us can count on, our desire to do the right thing. With that burning drive he creates a supernatural ectoplasmic cloud through which he can communicate with the one person who may be able to free him. Detective Jack McCann, Janice’s own brother.
When Judd regains consciousness from his head injury he is convinced he must kill either his father, or himself to save the lives of Janice and Detective McCann.
Father, mid-30s early 40s
