THE DEATHS OF IAN STONE THE DEATHS OF IAN STONE

Ian Stone (Mike Vogel from 2003's iteration of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) exists in a world best described as a gore-filled take on the comedy Groundhog Day. Though the combination may seem odd, it works. When viewers first meet Ian he is engaged in a hockey tournament, successfully shooting a game-winning goal with only 2 seconds remaining on the scoreboard. For a moment he was on top of the world, though bewildered when a referee claimed the shot occurred after the game's end. Ian was rightfully confused: the clock continued to display 2 seconds long after he departed the arena. Despite what seemed like a mere technical error, his teammates were furious about Stone's perceived failure. On the way home Ian meets his sweetheart, Jenny (Christina Cole) though their encounter is short-lived. Before reaching his destination a strange creature grabs Stone and tosses the hockey player in front of a bulleting train to meet certain death. He awakes, however, in an office building slogging away in a small cubicle. Though in a different time and place his associates remain largely the same, even if some take on a more sinister demeanor. This scenario repeats itself, though in each instance Ian is slightly older and living in a different environment. Regardless of whether he is a drug addict or cab driver, however, a mysterious old man continuously visits Stone and attempts to rescue the former hockey star from this cycle of death. The monsters that continuously visit Ian are so-called Harvesters, and they will not disappear until he saves Jenny from an impending death. Still, this piece of information is only part of a much larger puzzle, and Stone must race against time to solve it.
