Dive into the Story of Hemlock Island

Laney Kilpatrick's serene vacation home on Hemlock Island has become a beacon for strangers. While opening her private sanctuary to others brings a rush of anxiety, it's a necessary step. The aftermath of a pandemic-induced divorce left her with Hemlock Island as her sole possession, and renting it out is the only way she can hold onto this fragment of her past.

However, the island retreat doesn't remain serene for long. What started as minor damages—broken items and near-disastrous campfires—soon spirals into a series of chilling events. From the discovery of bloodied bones and eerie hex circles to the horrifying sight of blood and scratch marks in the guest room closet, it's clear that something or someone is amiss. The climax? Renters, paralyzed with fear, fleeing the premises, haunted by the thought of someone desperately trying to escape... but meeting a grim fate instead.

As the mysteries pile up, Laney, driven by concern and curiosity, arrives on the scene, her young niece accompanying her. To her surprise, she's not the only one drawn to the island. Her ex-husband, Kit, is already there, alerted to the strange occurrences. With him is Jayla, his sister and Laney's once-closest friend. The circle expands when Sadie, a blast from Laney's high school past, arrives with her brother, now donning a police badge.

The atmosphere on Hemlock Island grows thick with tension, secrets, and hushed conversations. The woods, once a source of tranquility, now echo with whispers of the unknown. The discovery of a lone hand emerging from the ground sends shockwaves through the group. And when its accompanying body is unearthed, panic sets in. Their only way off the island has been commandeered, leaving them stranded. As the hours tick by, it becomes chillingly clear: they're not alone, and their unseen companion has no intention of letting them leave Hemlock Island.
