How does a nice week in the woods sound? Like screaming. It sounds like screaming.Ever since the old Silverwood Electrical & Engineering labs shut down, the site, surrounded by trees on a quiet mountain, has been a peaceful refuge for campers of all kinds. But soon after a ragtag troop of scouts and a bus full of corporate drones arrive for a week of roughing it, the forest turns against them.There’s a strange pollen in the air that is making everyone agitated. Violent, even. There’s a creepy girl with a teddy bear. A giant, monstrous teddy bear. And there’s a malevolent force beneath the dirt, desperate to open a door between dimensions and return home. All it needs is blood.Welcome to Silverwood, campers.
There are only a few people left in the forest around Silverwood Electrical and Engineering who are not dead or not bent on murder. A scout chaperone huddles in a bunker with his daughter, her friend, and a receptionist from the financial company that was also on retreat in the woods. A few of her coworkers are in thrall to a little girl with a monstrous teddy bear. Where is everyone else? Just follow the screaming.What did you think of the episode?
