Five students sharing a ride to a party in the desert find themselves stranded at a recently deserted motel when a remote highway is closed. Refusing to let this interfere with their fun, they settle in only to be interrupted by odd, haunting visions. The gruesome sightings may explain the sudden abandonment of the morel, but the appearance of a strange man confirms their worst fears. He too has seen the dying people - victims of a killer, one that has likely taken his wife - a killer trailing a dark force of decay and rot. As the body count rises, the bizarre mystery deepens... can the group survive the night and confront what appears to be a terrifying abyss between the living and the dead?
