Synopsis: Five painfully typical college students escape to a cabin in the woods for a weekend getaway, where they are helpless to and unaware of the manipulations of a secret organization that’s trying to orchestrate their deaths at the hands of supernatural evils. The cabin itself rests on a secluded plot of land that is cut-off from the outside world, and underneath it is where the horror waits to be unleashed. Through various means the organization encourages the nubiles to break the appropriate genre rules so as to warrant their imminent deaths, which come at the hands of a randomly selected terror. The peculiar thing about all of this is that the puppeteers of the organization do not bother with such elaborate plotting for their own twisted amusement. Indeed, they do it for a much greater cause. But what on Earth could that be?
