Synopsis
Set designer Dane Foote lights his office with an ancient candle found amongst some props he has purchased. Under the light of the candle, he dreams up the perfect set design and the perfect special effect for the movie he is working on. Unfortunately, after the set is built and the scene is shot, a real-life town falls victim to the same thing that happens to the town in the film.
