Sick: Survive The Night (2012)
Two years after the infection began, billions have died. Governments have collapsed and the human race is on the brink of extinction. Dr. Leigh Rozetta is a young, maverick scientist,
who’s been living in a secret underground government facility since the outbreak began. After constant failed attempts to find a cure, Leigh sneaks away to return to her parent’s house.
On her way she crosses paths with Seph and Mckay, two militant survivalists, who only just barely escaped an attack from a group of infected. With nightfall close at hand, the three of
them know they need to seek shelter, as the SICK are more active in the dark. Boarding themselves up in Leigh’s parents house, the plan is simple: survive the night. But with the SICK surrounding the house and their own tensions through the roof, they’ll be lucky if anyone makes it out alive.

the infamous area known as The Devil’s Tramping Grounds. After 3 days without contact, the last remaining group that is working on the upcoming horror film, assemble with the intention
of finding their friends and bringing them back…However, once they too enter The Devil’s Tramping Grounds they quickly find there is no escape. Lead by Paul, Chase’s brother, they
must decipher the footage their friends have left behind and use it as a guide to unravel the horrifying mystery of what happened if they have a prayer to get everyone out safely, with
their souls in tact.
