The film starts with two college students, Halley & Rich rock climbing in the West Virginia forest. Rich gets to the top first while Halley continues to climb. She is having trouble so she asks for help up. All of a sudden, Rich is thrown off the cliff by unseen men. The killers then start pulling Halley up, but she cuts her rope and falls. She lands next to Rich's dead body, screams, gets up and runs off into the woods. The trees around her move and three eerie laughs are heard. Halley trips over a piece of barbed wire and is dragged away by the unseen killers.
Medical student Chris Flynn (Desmond Harrington) is on his way to a job interview and is driving through the mountains of West Virginia. Due to a chemical spill in the road ahead, he decides to take a different route, leading him through an abandoned dirt road in the middle of the woods. He then crashes into a car stranded in the center of the road.
The car he crashed into belongs to a group of friends on a hiking trip, which includes Jessie (Eliza Dushku), Carly (Emmanuelle Chriqui), Scott (Jeremy Sisto), Francine (Lindy Booth) and Evan (Kevin Zegers). Their car's tires were punctured by barbwire strung across the road. Francine and Evan stay with the cars, while the remainder of the group goes for help. Meanwhile the two who stayed behind are killed by the cannibals. Francine goes looking for Evan and finds his ear. She is then attacked and killed by a mountain man, getting barbed wire wrapped around her mouth.
Meanwhile, the others come across a isolated cabin. They discover that the cabin has many grisly horrors inside, such as entrails in a fridge and body parts in the bathtub. The cabin is home to a group of three cannibalistic mountain men, who are horribly disfigured due to generations of inbreeding.
They hide within the house when the cannibals come back home. The group is forced to watch as Francine is cut up and eaten. After the cannibals fall asleep the group tries to escape but accidentally wake them. A confrontation erupts with the disfigured men and the group flee through the woods. They succeed in stealing the cannibals' truck but Scott is killed when a cannibal shoots him with arrows.
Then the remaining three survivors hit a dead end in the road and continue on foot, meanwhile the cannibals track them. Eventually they end up at an old watch tower in hopes of finding a radio or rangers. There they find a radio but get no response. Someone responds just as the cannibals reach the tower and alerts the cannibals to the group's whereabouts. The cannibals then proceed to burn down the tower, but the three escape by jumping into a nearby tree. Unfortunately, Carly is killed by a cannibal who swings an axe into her mouth after he climbed up the tree.
The remaining two people, Chris and Jessie, climb out of the tree and hide in a cave until the next morning. They make their way through the woods and find a road down the hill. However, the mountain men find them, push Chris down the hill and capture Jessie and take her back to their cabin. Chris finds a police officer on the road who says he heard their call from the radio, however the policeman is shot in the eye with an arrow by one of the cannibals. Then Chris tries to start the cops car but doesn't have the key. One of the cannibals shoots arrows at the car. Chris then hides in a bush as the cannibal puts the cop's body in the back of his car and drives back to the cabin, Chris hangs onto the bottom of the car. When they arrive at the cabin, Chris finds Jessie tied up to a bed and gagged with a dog leash. He goes in and unties her and the two end up destroying the cannibals and their cabin by setting it on fire and they make it out of the woods alive. However, at least one cannibal survives, as shown in the ending credits.
