A half-century-old curse lies over the small community of Ridgewater ever since Sarah Chase died in a car accident during a teen-angst-driven game of chicken back in 1962. She perished in the back seat of a 1961 Impala, accompanied by a group of boys who called themselves "the big four". She screamed as the car careened through a guardrail and plunged into the icy river water beneath. The four boys survived. Sarah did not.
