Several years ago, a sleepy Pacific Northwest town was terrorized by a skull-faced maniac with a thirst for blood. It seemed no man, woman or child was safe from the North Bend Reaper, a crafty serial killer who became infamous for stealing patches of clothing from his bloodied victims. Despite a massive manhunt, the Reaper was never found. Fast forward to the present - a group of actors try to cash in on the town's notoriety by hosting an interactive murder mystery party based on the unsolved killings. After isolating their guests at an abandoned summer camp, they come to the terrifying conclusion that someone in their midst is killing them off one by one. Has someone chosen to continue the North Bend Reaper's bloody legacy? Or has the Reaper himself come back for one last dance with death?

The character of "Dreighton" the host of the murder mystery game had originally been written as an African American. He was described as an over the top "voodoo priest" with a skull painted on his face. After seeing several actors for the part the filmmakers were not happy with their choices. Something was missing. When Benjamin Gutknecht (Benjamin G Arthur) came in to read for the part of "Andrew" they soon realized his commanding presence and large stature would suit the "Dreighton" character better. Soon as he was cast the screenplay was re-tooled and the make up re-designed as an homage to "Alice Cooper/KISS". The Dreighton make up and costume took an hour each day to apply. He wears the make up for 70% of the movie. Director Dan Zachary's younger sister Angie Zachary plays the role of "Lisa" the naive goody two shoes camper. Dan also appears as one of the redneck's chasing the reaper through the woods in a flashback sequence. He can also be heard as the operator on the cell phone in the woods and as the radio announcer at the end of the film. Co-producer and co-writer John Knox plays "James" the perverted creep of the group.
