Plot:

A group of friends go for a summer weekend of hiking and drinking by the campfire and soon learn that their remote Vermont getaway won’t let them go back home.

Each time they attempt to walk away from the cabin, they appear back in the attic or the basement. Unfortunately, tensions arise and violence ensues…

Reviews:

“It’s a darker variation on Groundhog Day. Though not as dark as say Triangle or Koko-di Koko-da. At least, not at first. But as the seasons change, tempers, and sanity, start to fray. Of course, it’s a slow burn as they gradually unravel. But once things hit critical mass and blood is spilled the pace picks up as Walk Away moves into its final act.” Voices from the Balcony
