Synopsis by Mark Deming
A good Samaritan discovers the stranger she's helped is an evil genius with strange and dangerous powers in this horror story. Lacey Cole (Catharina Conti) is a pretty young woman who has recently lost her husband. Lacey is living in a small town in the logging country of the Northwest, where she has few visitors and little contact with the larger world. One day, Lacey encounters a man named Michael Bodine (Brennan Elliott), and she offers to help the friendly stranger who seems to have been lost in the woods. However, Michael turns out not to be as friendly as Lacey imagined -- Michael is a mass murderer who has escaped from prison, and he also possesses a keen but twisted intellect and psychic powers that allow him to tap into the minds of the recently deceased. Michael taps into the mind of Lacey's late husband and wins her trust before she realizes she's welcomed a violent lunatic into her home.
