You were supposed to be living the ‘American Dream’, ticking off an adventure of a lifetime from your bucket list by trekking across America. Yet here you find yourself, in the middle of a gloomy and chilling forest, lost, cold, scared.
The party the night before seemed like a good idea at the time, however awaking the next morning in a hungover state, you soon realise that you are massively behind schedule if you are to hike to your next destination before the end of the day. Having looked at your map, you anticipate being able to make up the lost hours by taking a short-cut through a large wooded area.
Once deep inside the woodland you soon realise that you’ve lost your GPS and Phone signal due to the dense canopy of leaves above, and so your only source of navigation becomes your map and gut instinct. You decide to keep going in the hope that it will bring you out the other side.
However, hours soon pass and yet all you can see ahead appears to be a never ending path of trees, and to make matters worse darkness begins to creep in as the sun sets. Panicking that you are now lost in the woods, you can make out what looks to be an abandoned cabin in the distance, and a decision is made to head to the cabin to take refuge for the night in order to shelter from the darkness, before attempting to find your way out of the woods again in the morning.
But is the darkness the only thing you should be scared of?
