A young couple on a cross-country road trip lose their way in a blizzard and wind up stranded in the middle of nowhere. As the days pass, their relationship slowly deteriorates, leading to the film's chilling climax.
A group of friends must survive a night in the wilderness after one of them is found stabbed to death. The dilemma is whether the killer is out in the woods, or is one of their own. The answer depends on unraveling the six month old mystery of their friend Sophia, who died suspiciously and whose killer was never found.Written by
The script had been in development since 2003, but was preceded by a novella that Johnson wrote in 1999, which in turn was preceded by a short story titled 'Conversations' that he wrote his junior year in high school (1994). See more »

Alone in the woods?!? A terrific first effort for Johnson
I caught the East Coast premiere of "Shadowed" last week and my wife summed up the edge-of-your-seat suspense when she leaned over and whispered: "I'm so glad I'm not out in the forest with them!"
There's something primal about being lost in the woods when the sun goes down... a sinking feeling in the stomach and growing panic. Add the reason for being in the woods in the first place - 5 twenty-somethings mourning the loss of a murdered friend - and you've got the recipe for a looong night.
More than just a murder mystery around the campfire, Johnson blends convoluted relationships, unspoken grudges, creepy characters, and an ominous soundtrack to keep the pace moving and the audience guessing until the very end.
