Five college friends on a class trip to an isolated farm uncover a sinister plot against them.

Synopsis:

Five college friends are failing a class in small business management, so in a last ditch effort to pass, they agree to spend a weekend on a small farm way out in the country. When they arrive, they discover just how cut off from society they are: no phone, no internet, no TV, and the only people there besides themselves are the owners, Mr. and Mrs. Graves, a stern, quiet couple who barely interact with their guests.

With nothing better to do, they decide to watch some horror films in the farmhouse basement, since Dave, the resident horror fanatic in the group, brought with him a huge collection of scary movies. His favorite of these is called Death Watch, a supposedly real collection of snuff films, appropriately enough, all filmed on a farm. As they watch this movie, their initial fear of Graves Farm turns to shear terror when they recognize the tool shed in the video as the very same one from the farm they’re now on.

Now convinced that their lives are in danger, they try to plan an escape, but suddenly, Farmer Graves appears at the door to the cellar with a shotgun and blasts a load of rock salt at the five friends. He then grabs one of them and locks the others in the cellar. As the remaining four recover from the shock, the TV they had been watching suddenly switches to a live feed from the tool shed, where their friend is now being tortured by a crazed beekeeper, whose identity his kept hidden by the beekeeping mask he wears.

Eventually, their friend succumbs to a horrific death at the hands of this beekeeper, and Mr. and Mrs. Graves return to the cellar to pick their next victim. But this time, the kids fight back, which leads to series of thrilling chases and fight scenes, leading to a climax in which Dave’s girlfriend is captured by the beekeeper, taken back to the tool shed and about to be killed on film, when Dave comes to her aid and attacks the beekeeper, who ends up dying on camera, in his own final snuff film.
