In 1879, long after the first abducting of a man in Willow’s Peak, people’s suspicions grew when more townsfolk began to act up. As if under some sort of spell. As if poisoned. Foaming at the mouth…sitings of strange creatures…vivid nightmares…even reports of supernatural powers…the small town on the side of Willow’s Mountain starts to dwindle. When The National Society for Devilry, or TNSD, lets out a report of monstrous werewolves in Willow Forest…a group of teens see no other way to find out what the hell is going on then to head inside. Not only are there demonic creatures in those trees…but a large, and supposedly haunted mansion that belonged to the Robert’s, a family from the late 1600’s that were murdered and mauled by who knows what. These teenagers, or Spencer Smith, Orabelle Reed, Emmett Sherman, Cecily Shirley, and Ivy Harriet venture into the forest, only to figure out that the monsters they are trying to kill and get away from aren’t on the outside or in the trees, but in themselves.
