Some of the locals in the small Scottish village of Ballantrae still tell tales about haunted Bennane Head, the cliffs just up the coast where mythical mass murderer and cannibal Sawney Beane is said to have dwelt with his inbred family during the seventeenth century. Never walk past there at night, they say, or heaven help you. Just a ghost story to give the tourists a thrill.
Phil, Griff, Sam and Cairnsey are local boys who enjoy a smoke, a beer and the occasional tab of mind bending acid, and celebrating the end of high school a night’s camping at Bennane Head sounds like a grand old time. But when their drug- fueled revelry descends into a nightmarish fight for their sanity and survival, those who make it through the night will know that know that true evil never forgets unpaid debts.
