Meanwhile, the girlfriends Jennifer and Kiyomi are searching for flowers in the same woods. When Flipp and Kiyomi vanish, their friends meet each other and stay together while a deranged hunter chases new victims for the vengeful spirit of the tree.

Let's have a look at the map.

So, according to police reports,

the missing tourist was

camping near the river here.


What do we know about this guy?

He was just

an amateur photographer.

- They never found his body.

- Right.

The rescue teams searched

the whole area for a week.

And nothing.

Guy completely vanished.

Now, the only thing

they found was his camera.

Those are his last shots.

Let's see.

These are some crappy shots.

I just want you to focus on

the very last picture he took.

It's exactly like

the drawing in your book.

Wow, man.

This is a creepy tree.

This cannot be a coincidence.

And according to

my grandfather's manuscript,

once we find the tree

we will also find

the secret burial ground.

I just hope it's not a bunch

of old skeletons down there.

Guys, we're gonna find this tree.

All righty.

Let's go.

Look, I don't mind doing

some digging and stuff.

Finally get my hands

on some cash.

Got everything?


Where's he going?

So. This is the river.

And this is where

the guy was camping.

Now, based on the reports,

they found his camera

a few miles up the river.

That means...

we're gonna have to cover

all this area.

And this is where

Flipp's gonna build our tent.

Right, Flipp?

Flipp? Where is he?

You hear that?

Take your shoes off.

Did you grow up

in a barn or somethin'?

Take your shoes off.

Jesus Christ.

That's it?


Tell me you're joking.

A man can actually live on beans

and nothing else.

What kind of a man is that?

Corned beef?

- Flipp, you're a lifesaver.

- I don't think so.

I'm on a low-carb diet.

I thought we agreed to

share everything equally.

You thought, maybe. Not me.

Here you go, Sai.

This is for you.

Hey! That dog eats

better than I do.

I'm sorry.

Would you like some?

- Forget it.

- Please.

No. I got some doughnuts

back in the tent.

All right.

Flipp, want some beans?

No, I'm fine, thanks.

Do you want some corned beef?

- I'm good, thanks.

- All right.

Is that your grandfather?


He had Cherokee blood.

He spent his entire life studying

the people that lived in these forests.

Their secrets, their legends.


Then, when he passed away,

he left me his journal.

Who's the girl next to the tree?

That's Satinka. She's a ghost.

Her fingers are made

of little tiny branches.

And her soul was cursed

by this tree right here.

What's funny?

Your grandfather was

really f***ed up, man.

I bet he was smokin' some real

good sh*t when he wrote that.

You know, there's some

really unique stuff in here.

That's why I want

to get it published.

What about

the secret burial ground?

And your f***in' treasure?

You know what?

It's not at all about the money.

It's real important to me

to honor my grandfather's memory.

Cheers to your grandfather.

I can't, man.

I got a lot of work to do.

Sai? Come on, boy.

Get out. Please.



"Once the twig enters

the skin, an infection occurs.

That's how the spirit

marks his victims."

Oh, God!

What the f*** is that?

"The victim will slowly

start to get sick...

"and will ultimately be paralyzed,

as if he were under the effect

of a strong venom."

Where did you go?

This place sucks, man.

I want to go home.

What happened?

Let me see.

It's okay, man.

It's just a scratch.

- Are you okay?

- Yeah, I'm fine.

Oh, gee.

Get on your dancin' shoes

You sexy little swine

Hey, Flipp! Get your ass

out of bed. Go get your dog.

Cool shot.

Hey, Flipp. Wake up, man.



I'm gonna search

the left side of the river.

And I want you and Flipp

to explore the right side.

How much digging have we got?

According to the legend,

the secret burial ground

is just below the tree.

How deep, I don't know.

Why? Got any problems?

Me? No. Flipp, yeah.

He's my problem.

Guy's got a PhD in laziness.

Hey, Flipp! Come on, get up.

We got work to do.


Where is he?

I don't know.

He was down by the river

with his dog.

All right.

I'm gonna go look for him.


We're not alone.

Hey, look what I found.

A Datura stramonium.

Blooms once in every six years.

Let's cut it.


Don't smell it.

It causes hallucinations.

I know.

Back from where I'm from, every kid

used to get high on 'shrooms.

And then we'd go back

to this barn and make out.

Come on, let's go. We only have

two more to go before we go back.

Can I make some tea with this?

It's tempting.


No, thanks.

It'll be fun.

Easy, girl.

That's enough.

Here you go.

Thank you.


To a long, hard day.


That is disgusting.

You know, it's a shame

we have to leave already.

It's so peaceful out here.


Nothing. Just the tea

was a little too hot. That's all.



There was some girl

behind me just now.

I even could feel her breathing.

Okay, listen.

No more tea.

Hey, Josh!

Just don't f***in' do that, man.

I'm sorry.

Any luck?

No, man. He's just...

Well, he was definitely here

this morning.

Must have gotten lost

on his way back.

All right, let's go look for him.

Come on.

I feel happy. Yeah.

Hooray for nature, Jennifer.

What's the matter?

I saw a girl again.

I'm glad you think this is funny.

It's not.

This is what

you get for drinking this sh*t.

Drink some water.

You're just dehydrated.

We've been out here forever.

I think I parked

the truck over there.

Sit tight, okay?

And don't go anywhere.
