Four friends go on a camping trip in the remote woods. One night, around a blazing fire, a mysterious tramp approaches them. In return for sharing their fire and food, he tells them four scary stories. The first, "The Hook," is about a serial killer who murders his victims with a metal hook he uses for a hand; the second, "Overtoke," tells about of a bunch of pot smokers who find out that their "grass" isn't quite what it seems to be; the third, "The Fright Before Christmas," tells what happens to a greedy yuppie who murders his mother on Christmas Eve; the fourth, "Skull & Crossbones," has a crew of pirate zombies after the evil buccaneer who murdered them.
