The opening scene introduces us to Sarah and Ed, driving through the beautiful Scottish countryside, excitedly anticipating their new chapter in life. They arrive at their new home, an old, isolated farmhouse nestled in the rolling hills. As they settle in, strange occurrences begin to happen: the animals act strangely, objects move around the house, and they hear ominous noises at night.

One day, while exploring the surrounding lands, they stumble upon a well-hidden graveyard, and Ed discovers a strange symbol etched into a nearby stone. As they investigate further, they find that the symbol belongs to an ancient clan that once lived in the area.

As night falls, the intruders arrive and begin their barrage of terror. Sarah and Ed are forced to fight for their lives as the group of masked individuals relentlessly hunts them through the night.

The acting is strong, with McIntosh and Williams delivering impressive performances as the terrified couple. Joanne Mitchell is also outstanding as the leader of the masked group, bringing a chilling intensity to her role.
