Remember the twin golden rules of hitchhiking? #1: Don’t go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy. #2: Don’t pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be certifiably crazy.

Welcome to Haver-Towne. The sedate colonial resort is the perfect place where Stew Fanshawe can get away from it all for a while. But instead of finding tranquility and self-reflection, Stew finds something much more unique: a town that was once steeped in a quagmire of witchcraft, satanic debauchery, and centuries-old occult science.

A group of indie rockers seek solitude deep in the woods to write songs for a new album. But they soon realize they're not alone when a sledgehammer-brandishing intruder arrives in this chilling musical slasher directed by actor Vincent D'Onofrio.
