Their maniacal rampage may be in jeopardy, however, through an ironic twist of fate: a documentary filmmaker’s car breaks down in Mansionville. While stranded and waiting for parts in the non-functioning town, he learns of the sisters, their secretive month-long vacation, and the many men who have disappeared. As the fresh meat is being brutalized and murdered, the filmmaker starts asking questions–and he begins making the connection. Is he on the road to an Oscar? Or an untimely, horrific death?
