About the film:Â â€œOn a walk through local woods rumoured to be haunted, writer Adam Shay come across a strange sight: a statue of a half-man, half- goat creature, a satyr from ancient legends, that comes to life before his eyes. Soon, women in the town begin disappearing, summoned to the woods by the satyrâ€™s hypnotic piping. When Adam gathers his friends to hunt down the satyr and save the women, what they uncover is an unholy evil hell-bent on protecting itself and spreading its seed… â€œ
