After forbidding Mann to see their daughter, Terry and Alisa McGhee think that the worst has passed, but little do they know that the real nightmare is waiting around the corner. When extended family visits the McGhees' house, they are welcomed by Terry and Alisa's cold bodies, but Amanda McGhee is nowhere to be found. Could she be alive? Abducted? Or worse?
