Based on an true story, Johnny Frank Garrett's Last Word is terrifying tale of vengeance from beyond the grave. On Halloween night 1981, Catholic nun Tadea Benz is brutally murdered. In a rush to judgment, Texas feel pressured to solve the case quickly. Soon a suspect emerges as 18-year-old Johnny Frank Garrett is arrested and put on trial. Overlooking evidence that could have cleared his name, the jury passes swift judgment and Garrett is convicted and sentenced to death. But from the time of his arrest until his dying breath Garrett professes his innocence, and following the execution a letter is found in his cell, promising retribution and cursing the souls of anyone connected with his demise. Within weeks of his execution, Johnny's terrifying prophecy is unleashed as a series of unexplained deaths strike down those involved in the cover-up. As the list of victims grows, it is left to one conscience-stricken juror to exonerate Johnny and break his curse before it’s too late.
