They hire a small film crew to document their journey and upload the videos to their video channel.
When funding falls through, they find themselves stuck in the middle of nowhere. Things take a twist when Mark discovers the town has a horrible history of death. He secretly digs deeper into the past and stumbles upon something evil.
Tensions start to rise when one of the film crew goes missing, and everyone finds themselves trapped in the town. Jenna comes up with a plan to escape, but Mark begins to lose his mind and takes matters into his own hands.
Jenna makes one last attempt to escape the town. She gets lost in the wooden maze while something evil goes after her. She must escape or become an eternal resident in Blackwood Falls…
“The dialogue feels real. The vocabulary used is neither improvised, robotic, nor intellectual. These are the words we need to hear to believe. The ongoing disputes between the main protagonist, his spouse, and tertiary characters end up tightening the pace, leaving just enough room for an intense third act.” Tales of Terror
Writer/director Isaac Rodriguez: “After visiting the J. Lorraine ghost town in Austin, Texas, I was immediately inspired to make my next film there. The town was actually all built by the current owner. Some of the buildings were very small and looked fake, but I knew I could incorporate that into the story. A few months back, I saw a YouTuber who sold everything and moved into a real ghost town in California. I wanted to use that basic idea with a married couple and add a The Shining vibe to it.”.
