In this slightly sci-fi version of the classic Headless Horseman tale, legend has it that 100 years ago a madman went on a killing spree through the town of Wormwood. He brutally beheaded many innocent children, and was in turn beheaded himself by the angry townspeople. Every seven years, the headless horseman's ghost returns to Wormwood for another deadly ride through town, where he seizes the heads of seven people in an act of revenge. This year, seven college students have the bad luck of getting lost in Wormwood on the same day the horseman is expected. Will they be his next victims or will they find a way to end the curse'
