Summary
"Severely traumatized by a near-fatal encounter with a serial killer, TV newscaster Karen White takes time off at a secluded retreat called 'the Colony.' But when, after nights of being tormented by bestial, bloodcurdling cries, Karen ventures into the woods seeking answers, she makes a terrifying discovery. Now she must fight not only for her life-- but for her soul!"--Container
