Plot Summary

Student Regina wins a holiday break at the remote and seemingly idyllic Red Wolf Inn. The elderly couple who run the place seem friendly enough, if a bit eager to please. But Regina soon learns that people check into the Red Wolf Inn and never leave – and there's something very suspect indeed about the couple's barbecued ribs…
