Based on the novel by Adam Nevill:
Old college friends Dom, Phil, Luke, and Hutch have decided to reunite and reminisce about their past exploits while hiking through the Swedish Forests. The location wasn’t the first choice some of the men would have chosen due to their limited or non-existent outdoors experience, but the trip was chosen for its frugality due to the fact that one member, Luke, would be unable to afford much else. As the group goes further and further into the woods, they are forced to take a shortcut due to Phil developing severe blisters on his feet and Dom badly injuring his knee. However the shortcut ends up causing the group to become hopelessly lost and scared, especially after they discover a disemboweled animal corpse hanging from the trees. They eventually make their way to an ancient shack filled with bones and strange artifacts, where they discover that they are not alone in the woods and that something is intent on ensuring that they never leave.
