Logline:
Seven college friends find the gateway to Hell, when they open the box.

Synopsis

What should have been a great day out by the river for seven college friends, turns into one of fear and murder when they decide to explore an island and discover a derelict colonial mansion.

Itís spooky but not deadly, even when they enter the loft and put on the old clothes they find. Itís all harmless fun until they discover THE BOX.

Opening THE BOX releases a dark swirling mist that engulfs them, sucking them into it. They emerge in 1863 not knowing where they are.

Eventually, five of them work it out, when they see the colonial mansion in all itís glory but in Georgeís mind, heís a Union Officer fighting for a cause. And his friends are dressed as his enemy.

One by one he eliminates his quarry, then leaves the island. Only to be confronted by the local Sheriff and his men, searching for seven missing college friends.

The Sheriffís investigation leads to the discovery of six bodies and the arrest of George, for murder.

The police are baffled. The mystery draws them deeper and deeper until, they too, discover and open - THE BOX! Then all is explained. . . or is it?

George knows!
