But nothing could prepare them for what lay ahead.
In the middle of the night there is a long hollow knock on the door. Disturbed and alarmed by the late night caller, the couple answer the door to a young girl looking for her friend, but instantly they know something is wrong.
In that one single action, they unleash an unimaginable rain of psychological terror as a masked group stalk them throughout the night. There desire is not to murder but to terrorise and hunt. James and Kristen are trapped and alone as their hunters cut all lines of communication and despite their best efforts, enter their home and mentally torture them, making them question their own sanity and their trust for each other.
Will the couple escape their predator's clutches? Will they make contact with the outside world to save them? Will they discover why they have been chosen as victims?
