Carla rents a cabin up in the woods of Maine to work on her novel in peace. She decides to invite her sister and some friends up for a visit. Then things get ugly. Apparently a clan of cave-dwelling cannibals live nearby and target the cabin that our group is staying in. It’s a pretty basic horror plot, but it’s very effective here.
The story opens up with a bunch of kids chasing a terrified woman and hitting her with sticks while laughing. It’s disturbing and really sets the tone for the rest of the novel. Not only are there crazy mountain men and women out there, these kids are vicious.
