From The Press Release

The series follows a wealthy, dysfunctional family that gathers for a reunion on a secluded island only to learn they’ll be pitted against one another in a cruel game of life and death, all while being stalked by a mysterious masked killer.

Shudder members won’t want to miss a single episode of this incredible event series.”
