It’s the middle of the night, and you’re driving across Old Alton Bridge in Denton. You’ve heard a few stories about it, but you’re a skeptic, so you just shrug them off and don’t think twice about entering the lair of a bloodthirsty ghost. Right when you’re about to reach the end of the bridge, your headlights shut off. Then, your car stalls and refuses to start back up. You’re racking your brain for logical explanations…and that’s when you see him.
This bridge is home to a creature called the Goat Man, whose story is one of hatred, rage, and tragedy. Now, he haunts it looking for innocent victims to unleash his anger on. Will you be next?
