Almost immediately, a crazed, blood-soaked stranger barges into the cabin and tells the family that he has come to save them…but from what? Though their unwanted guest may just be a lone maniac, menacing noises outside suggest the presence of something far more freightening. It’s not long before the family realizes a dark force is at play-one that wants them all dead by the dawning of the day.
