The isolated location, a group of teenagers bent on partying, a disturbed individual (the killer) roaming the area.
A group of teens arrive at an isolated lakeside cabin to clean it up and ready it for sale. The cabin belongs to one of the boys' dead grandmother. When they arrive, they discover someone has been living in (and making a mess of) the cabin.
There's the inevitable fight amongst the teenagers and one of the boys goes stomping out into the darkness. Of course, he is the first to die. The remaining teens decide to make a break for it, only to realize that their vehicle has been disabled by the killer.
One of the girls dies in a terrible conflux of events as she's trying to call for help on her cell phone. Her boyfriend, the grandson of the cabin's owner, goes out to confront the murderous madman, only to get himself killed. The lone girl left tricks the killer, stabs him in the neck, then sets him on fire. She escapes, and presumably summons the authorities.
A year later, the family who owned the cabin, and whose son died there, finally sell the property. However, it is implied by the ending that the killer survived the fire that consumed the cabin.
Honestly, the whole thing was a bit too Friday the 13th for me. And it wasn't the least bit scary. The only surprising thing in the whole story was that the grandmother was having an affair with the killer, before he went crazy.(less)
