The long synopsis to Richard Roundtree’s Dogged reads as follows:
Dogged is a dark fairy tale meshed with psychological terror and explores our primeval fear of “what lurks in the woods”. When protagonist Sam and his girlfriend Lola are caught making out in his fathers car by a bizarre masked man, their escape seems all too easy. As they return to their normal lives, they are plagued by visions of masked people watching them, and their lives begin to unravel in a depraved spiral of paranoia.
As Sam digs deeper into these visions, he discovers that all is not what it seems in his seemingly idyllic rural community, and he uncovers a murderous cult who will stop at nothing to preserve the status quo of their environment, and keep their identities a secret”
