One night, some kids went into the woods with a camera …
When morning came, the camera was all that was left of them.

Witches circle a dark shed in the woods. A woman scrubs at bloody stains that no one else can see. Ghosts cry for revenge as a usurper takes the throne from its rightful king, while a prophecy swiftly closes in. And all throughout, a video camera rolls on…

Inspired by The Blair Witch Project and other contemporary found-footage horror movies, this Shakespearean tale of horror, ambition, and the lengths we'll go for power gains a terrifyingly modern edge, as director Daniel Thomas Blackwell spins a tale fit for telling around the campfire.
