A Head Full of Ghosts sees the lives of a family that is torn apart when their daughter begins to show signs of schizophrenia. The Barretts go to the doctors, but they are hopeless to keep their daughter from descending into madness. The family ends up contacting a priest who wants to perform an exocism while also having it filmed for a reality television show. The family soon founds themselves as stars of a his show. Now, fifteen years later, a writer seeks to interview Marjorie’s younger sister Mary who lived through the events when she was only eight years old, but has memories far different than what aired on television.

Tremblay also wrote The Cabin at the End of the World which sees a seven-year-old girl named Wen head to a remote cabin in the woods with her two dads, Eric and Andrew. One day while out in the yard, a stranger arrives and tells Wen that “none of what is going to happen is your fault.” Then three more strangers arrive. They tell Wen they need their help to save the world.
