Synopsis: This dark, bloody imaginative fairy tale about a camping trip that turns into deadly carnage draws on such influences as Lord of the Rings, Friday the 13th and The Devil’s Backbone. The story follows 12-year-old outcast Sam who, along with his troop of cub scouts and their teenage supervisors, camp in woods rumored to house a mysterious and deadly werewolf. Inquisitive Sam, certain the woods are inhibited by something evil, soon stumbles upon a feral young boy and eventually, his evil psychopathic mentor. But convincing the others of the danger falls on deaf ears, and soon for the non-believers, dead ears, as ingenious traps begin to take their violent toll on the group. A wildly entertaining “killer in the woods” actioner.

"Fast paced and entertaining...kinetic and brutal, gory and graphic with comedic beats in-between. Yeah, CUB is a bloody good time." - Bloody Disgusting

"A refreshing mix of terror, action and depth. We've seen "killer in the woods" movies before, but while CUB uses the basic framework of the subgenre it layers the story with characters and details that feel fresh and creative in their execution." - Film School Rejects
