Renowned horror writer Jack Ketchum brings his chilling cannibal tale from the page to the screen with Director/Producer Andrew van den Houten (Headspace). A series of murderous home invasions in the sleepy seaside town of Dead River, Maine alarms the former sheriff George Peters (Art Hindle, The Brood, Black Christmas). The events are eerily similar to a bloody battle he’d fought with a wild and savage clan a decade ago, which has managed to elude capture and survive by hiding out in forests and caves. When the clan leader (Pollyanna McIntosh, Headspace, Sex and Death 101) discovers a secluded home, she orders her followers to abduct the residents, two women and their young children, to assure the cannibals’ survival. But the kidnapped women have survival instincts of their own, and the former sheriff has a score to settle, even if it kills him.
