FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sean Paul Murphy’s Chapel Street Mixes a Tragic Family History with a Terrifying Demonic Presence.
May 8, 2020--Baltimore, MD--Sean Paul Murphy’s new supernatural thriller Chapel Street is set to release July 3.
After enduring the death of his father in a car accident, Rick Bakos grew up to watch both his brother and his mother succumb to madness and suicide. Nor were they the first members of his family to kill themselves. After photographing the grave of Betty Kostek, Rick finds himself drawn into a maelstrom of horror. Each night he finds himself inexorably drawn closer to self-destruction. Rick’s only ally is Teri Poskocil. She too has fallen under the suicidal spell of the late Betty Kostek. The couple soon discovers their pairing wasn’t a coincidence. Their great-grandparents were next door neighbors on Chapel Street nearly a century earlier. Together Rick and Teri must solve the mystery of Chapel Street before they find death at their own hands.
“This is not just a product to me,” Murphy states. “I grew up in an actively haunted house and experienced the tragic suicides of two siblings.” Murphy creates a spine-tingling story about family, love, and good versus evil. Chapel Street will appeal to horror aficionados ages eighteen and older. The horror is predominantly psychological and spiritual in nature. By combining the tragedy of suicide and questions of the afterlife, Murphy creates a compelling tale in the vein of The Conjuring and Hereditary.
