"Nature is a haunted house..." -Emily Dickinson
"In an attempt to reconcile the problems in their relationship, Myra (Carmen Anello) and James (Owen Lawless) venture to an isolated cabin in the mountains. It is there they encounter an ancient evil that haunts the landscape, capable of turning people into deformed monsters. Not only will they be fighting for their relationship, they will be fighting for their lives."
