Storyline

The Woods family gathers at a cabin resort to hear the last will and testament of their wealthy patriarch George Woods ten years after his death. All vying for the much-anticipated Woods' fortune, the players include his greedy sister and her grandson, an eccentric niece and two ambitious nephews, his mistress, and his missing daughter's husband with their amnesiac granddaughter. Before the players can stake their claim to the family fortune, each must survive the family attorney's investigation into the mysterious disappearance of Woods' adopted daughter Mona. Why did Mona suddenly run away before the death of Woods? Will she show up to claim her fortune, or was her disappearance the result of a conspiracy? As the story unfolds, family members turn on each other and murder is the weapon of choice to reveal a dark secret.

A mystery drama over a thriller
29 April 2020 | by nhossain-15971See all my reviews

The family lawyer plays a smooth and moderate host to great effect, and the rest of the group is also believable - they have so much fun when interact with each other in the room - I really enjoy some of the wise and humorous dialogues. I think the locations are all natural and beautiful. The story has a strong backbone with different timeframes told through flashbacks, all of which can get you very emotional. Regardless of number of death, I prefer it defined as a mystery drama over a thriller. If you're a type of essential horror flicks lovers, then perhaps this is not for you.
