Plot Summary

A group of friends reunite after a long time to plan a vacation. They finally decide to go on a hiking trip in Sweden (Eastern Europe). When one of them is injured, they have no choice but to cut through the forest in order to arrive at the lodge a couple of hours sooner. During a raging rainstorm, they spent the night in a spooky, abandoned house. What awaits them are things they never expect out of this supposedly bonding trip. Written by heyitsnuel

Trivia The original tagline that was used when advertising the film was 'They should have gone to Vegas'. But due to the massacre in Vegas that took place on 1st of October 2017, the tagline has now been changed to 'They should have gone to Ibiza'. See more »
Goofs The hiking appears to take place in or around summertime. According to the map they are in Sarek which is far up north in Sweden where the sun never sets in the summertime, in the movie it's pitch black in the night. See more »
