|Plot: Five friends head to a remote cabin, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads them to unwittingly summon up demons living in the nearby woods. The evil presence possesses them until only one is left to fight for survival.|
An injured, terrorized girl is being chased down in the woods. The men who capture her take her to some cabin’s basement. They believe she is possessed by an evil entity so they have her tied to a column. Her own father is among them, and as she tries to convince him that there’s nothing wrong with her, she slowly loses control and eventually it becomes clear that she is in fact possessed. In response to this her father pours flammable liquid on her, sets her on fire, then shoots her in the head.
Some time later, David (Shiloh Fernandez) and his girlfriend Natalie (Elizabeth Blackmore) meet up at a cabin in the woods with his sister Mia (Jane Levy), and their friends Eric (Lou Taylor Pucci) and Olivia (Jessica Lucas). The goal is to help Mia overcome her heroin addiction. David and Mia’s old dog Grandpa is there too. David had moved to another city years before, leaving a younger Mia alone to attend to their late, mentally ill mother. Eric looks at some old photos of himself, David, Mia, and Olivia together, lamenting how David has not been there for them for quite a while, and their own faded friendship. Olivia says it doesn’t matter since he is at least there for them and for Mia now.
