As kids, we are given countless rules to abide by. We are told to respect our elders, we are expected to do as our parents say, and we are taught to follow the rules of our teachers. Most of the time, it’s pretty easy to follow these rules.
We stop talking to our dolls when it’s lights out, we finish our dinner to get ice cream for dessert, and we stop poking our little sister in the eye because apparently, it’s not very nice. Our little minds are so absorbent and fragile that we’ll follow these rules because we think that they are for our better good – but as kids start to grow up and think with their own minds, these rules sometimes go out of the window.
Yes, more and more kids start to rebel against their family and their rules as they get older, and they start getting themselves into trouble. We’ve all done it. We’ve all stayed out later than our curfew, we’ve all snuck down into the kitchen at night to steal a little bit of the cake your mom was saving for your family dinner, and we’ve all said that we’ve completed our homework when in reality we’ve not even started it. Most of the time, these are harmless rebellions that rarely receive more than a simple telling off.

Perhaps you were scared of your neighbors’ dog, perhaps you just couldn’t stand the thought of walking to school by yourself, or perhaps you were scared of a dilapidated building you passed every single day. We wouldn’t be surprised if that were the case. Horror movies almost always take place in abandoned buildings in the middle of nowhere, and we all know that there are rarely any happy endings in these movies. So, when this man decided to check out an abandoned cabin, he knew the risks were high…
