After Mara survives the accident at the old asylum, it makes sense that she has issues. She lost her best friend, her boyfriend, and her boyfriend’s sister, and her family moves to a new state for a fresh start. But that fresh start is quickly filled with hallucinations --- or are they premonitions? --- and then corpses, and the boundary between reality and nightmare is wavering.
