A group of college graduates rent a cabin in the woods and begin to fall victim to a horrifying flesh-eating virus, which attracts the unwanted attention of the homicidal locals.
Just when you thought you were safe from water, director Eli Roth shows that even water can be deadly. When a flesh-eating parasite gets into the creek of the cabin, the waters become contaminated with the virus. This contamination makes the water in the town very lethal to anyone who touches it or drinks it.
