Story: The title, “Matthew 18” refers to the Matthew 18: 19-20 chapter and verse from the bible, which states: “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

Michelle Jamieson, a beautiful 18 year old, has a strong desire to go away to college for her pre-med education. When the opportunity arises for her to separate from her Washington D.C. home and her bible-thumping parents, she takes a scholarship for a medical program at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Once there she is to be looked after by her aunt Jessie and is allowed to stay in a large mansion that has been kept in her family for generations. But what she finds supersedes her natural existence – making her mortality vulnerable to the spiritual realm she so comfortably doubted. She begins to encounter strange and unexplainable occurrences. Michelle decides to investigate and uncovers a world of family secrets and unspeakable evil.
