    • Synopsis
    • A small town in rural Maine gets turned upside down as a mysterious animal attack leaves a local resident brutally ripped apart on the side of the road. It is deemed to be a random bear attack by town officials, however, freelance journalist Max Frome suspects it might be something more.

      The medical examination of the body brings back inconclusive results, so Max teams up with his photographer friend and former partner, Harriet Standz to dig deeper into the mystery.

      As more attacks surface, they begin to find similarities that point to something different than a bear and they learn of a creature that may have been around for eons undetected until now.

      Max becomes obsessed with breaking the story of the century and strains his relationships with his boss at the newspaper and Harriet who begins to fear that they are holding information that could be vital to the the police.
      After a close encounter with the creature at Max's house Hariet finally convinces him to bring in Charlie the local sheriff for help.

      Unfortunately that help comes too late when Harriet becomes the creatures next victim. Max Charlie and his deputy then launch a hunt for the creature in its out territory to try and stop it before it can do any more damage.
