Deep in the north woods, two sisters become lost; one stalked by her ex-husband, the other unable to rid herself of the leeches that appear mysteriously on her skin.
All are drawn to an old, dilapidated cabin.
Inside lives an old man with awful urges, accompanied by a Rottweiler possessed by something…unnatural.
But it’s what resides beneath the cabin that they should really be worried about.
