"Set in the 1970s, this horrific tale pulls its inspiration from a real case of paranormal studies. It was 1974 when Professor Joseph Coupland (Harris), an unconventional but charismatic figure on campus, lured a batch of students to a remote location to implement a peculiar experiment to discover if it is possible to manifest negative human energy and channel it into creating a poltergeist."
