A loan officer who evicts an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point.
Five friends head to a remote cabin, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads them to unwittingly summon up demons living in the nearby woods. The evil presence possesses them until only one is left to fight for survival.
Christine Brown is a loans officer at a bank but is worried about her lot in life. She's in competition with a competent colleague for an assistant manager position and isn't too sure about her status with a boyfriend. Worried that her boss will think less of her if she shows weakness, she refuses a time extension on a loan to an old woman, Mrs. Ganush, who now faces foreclosure and the loss of her house. In retaliation, the old woman place a curse on her which, she subsequently learns, will result in her being taken to hell in a few days time. With the help of a psychic, she tries to rid herself of the demon, but faces several hurdles in the attempt. Written by

I am very up set with the people who write negative comments for a movie like this. they don't have sense.
Don't listen to anyone with negative comments on this title. Watch it and you will enjoy it for the next of your life. Its really more then an excellent movie.
I am a real hardcore horror fan. so don't get it wrong. I have never seen a movie like that in my life Wrong Turn series, Hostels, Saws, are good But this one is excellent. for sure. go for it and you will be jumping in your seat. if you want to really enjoy it just watch it in a dark room in the night if possible, alone and if possible turn on your headphones to listen. and you will not be disappointed
