What if the figure that haunted your nightmares as a child was real?
Twenty years ago, four teenagers went exploring in the local woods, trying to find the supposed home of the Bone Keeper. Only three returned.
Now, a woman is found wandering the streets, horrifically injured, claiming to have fled the evil urban myth.
And then a body turns up.
