In the first Dark Moon Digest of 2017, two children investigate a local lore; a woman desires to be more like her peers; a man searches for his missing wife to clear his name from her possible murder; a DVD predicts—or creates!—the future; a company psychiatrist has a discussion with an employee; an infomercial spirals into a hostage situation; a dangerous book is sought after in the post-apocalypse; a woman is bitten by a bug; and a man cares after his Alzheimer’s-stricken wife while something strange haunts them in the forest.
