A sudden and mysterious inheritance brings Danny (Anthony Ilott) and his friends to Hobb Springs, a forgotten resort deep in the West Virginia hills. Hobb Springs is being looked after under the watchful care of Jackson and Sally, a socially awkward couple who introduce Danny to the long lost family he's never known. A clan by the name of Hillicker. But soon Danny learns his relatives have a different way of living, that for generations, the Hillickers have observed ancient traditions rooted in cannibalism and other taboo rituals. These practices have kept the family strong if not necessarily pure. And tempted by the forbidden, Danny is forced to choose between his friends and his bloodline.
- Premieres during 2014's FrightFest in August.
- Filmed in Bulgaria.
- It's said that this film is "headed in a new direction" compared to the previous installments.
- Directed by Valeri Milev (Re-Kill), who takes over from Declan O'Brien after serving as director for sequels 3 to 5.
- The obvious sixth film in the series. No word if it will serve as a prequel much like the past films, but that seems unlikely.
