Every neighborhood has their "haunted house." Calvin Burnett lives at 220 Arabella Ave, behind which stands the mysterious Southern Darby Forest and The Red Barn, the most notorious site of rumor and paranormal speculation in town. One day, Calvin and his best friend Arlo get the bright idea to capitalize on the infamous backyard by “documenting” the mysterious goings-on surrounding it. Their plan is to fake some creepypasta videos, gain some internet fame, and scare their classmates. Once the cameras start rolling, however, Calvin and his friends learn that the Red Barn and the trees surrounding it need no special effects or trickery to scare the life out of them.
