Two Michigan State University students decide to take a long weekend at a remote cabin in the woods.  When they arrive, the cabin is more rustic than they had anticipated and as they explore the property, they find a variety of different items that leave them less than comfortable.  As they settle in for the night things begin to go haywire after listening to the recording of the cabin’s former owner reading from the Book of the Dead.

During the night the dead arise…and our valiant students must fight the oncoming spirits or die trying.
