Storyline

This story begins 30 years ago, in a remote English village. Then, many believed the odd tales they had heard of a millionaire scientist and socialite named Rathbone, who often performed ungodly animal experiments, but mysteriously disappeared one day from his mansion house. But the village locals version of the Rathbone legend took his oddities quite a bit further. They were quite sure that his experimenting included humans, in addition to the local fauna. So no-one was upset or too curious when he went missing, even after rumours that one of his human subjects had got loose, killed him, and escaped. Now, a group of teenagers, decide to go looking for clues about the lore, or even about the crazed scientist himself. Then one night out in the woods, beyond the village - ...is what they encounter, captured on video.
