Alysa King plays Kylie Winters, a teen who is coerced into a sexual encounter at a party by a popular boy (Aaron Chartrand), whose friends send video of it across social media. Her self-confidence in shreds, and her reputation in tatters, she is in chronic victim mode when she reluctantly agrees to a desperate plea by a couple in a secluded castle-like mansion to babysit their two children on Halloween. The children’s mother makes clear she knows about Kylie’s rep, and would rather anybody else be guarding her children that night. Alone in the country, Kylie is a prime target when she begins receiving prank phone calls, and a boy wearing a pig’s head makes a suspiciously-late trick-or-treat call. What follows is a game of cat-and-mouse between Kylie and a gang of butchering hicks. It is a test of will that requires her to stand up and take charge if she and the children in her care are to survive the night.
