The story is set in the summer of 1984 and follows Heather Ross and her group of friends just after their graduation from college. We meet the gang on their way to one last weekend at a cabin in the woods where, unknown to Heather, her boyfriend plans to propose. They are treated to rumors of a wild bear that is supposedly killing hikers in the woods but do not head the warnings of the local townspeople. Love triangles bloom as the campers attempt to follow their own individual desires and the appearance of a strange Hunter in the woods complicates things further as people start to disappear... and die. Heather is forced to fight for her own survival and find out who is responsible for the deaths of her friends. Is it the jerk Adam? Her own boyfriend? The sultry Summer? The strange Hunter? Or someone (or something) else?
