A cabin. A family. An abomination.
Hal Baker is overworked. He’s been burning the candle at both ends for seven years and now it’s caught up with him. When stress and exhaustion overtake him at work, he’s ordered to take a break. Doctor’s orders. With prompting from his boss and friend, he, his wife Veronica, and his son and daughter– Sean and Donna–go on a camping getaway. It’s there he reconnects with his family and realizes what he’s been missing out on.
However, this blessing has an unexpected cost. Something strange is happening in Meechum Forest. Something odd. Something incredible. Something dark. That something is willing to let Hal and his family in…but not out. If Hal doesn’t find a way to escape, he may lose the family that he’s just rediscovered.
