Ella’s new next-door neighbour is confident, verging on cocky. He’s keen to prove to Ella and her friends that he knows no fear, and when he learns that the local woods are supposed to be haunted, he persuades them to join him in exploring them. However his confidence is soon shattered, and the stories about the forest’s terrifying, blood-drinking inhabitant seem to be true as awful things start to happen to the group.
