Spanning generations, a curse reincarnates and ruthlessly flays the souls of any victim that comes across its path. The estrange daughter now has to save her brother and those around her from this malevolent and faceless spirit.
The site for Flay explains that their creature is based on legends across a variety of cultures from the 18th and 19th century from the Old West, the haunting of faceless ghosts of Japan, to the modern day stories of a faceless ghost reported on the island of Hawaii.
