This modern retelling follows a family, the Dooms, on vacation. Jess wants to try something different for once and so they opt for a rural community rife with local legends, cults and an otherworldly atmosphere. Jess’ boyfriend, Jamie, comes along with them and they eagerly enjoy the respite from their lives in the urban jungle. Unbeknownst to them all, there is more to the peace and quiet than meets the eye. Dark forces are at work beneath the town’s idyll and what started as a fun getaway quickly became a deadly game involving the sacrifice of innocent blood, witchcraft and the resurgence of an evil from an all too familiar fairytale.
