The Beach House

Emily (Liberato) and her boyfriend, recent college dropout Randall (Le Gros), decide to spend some quality time together at his parents' vacation home. Once there, they are met by Jane (Nagel) and Mitch (Weber), old friends of Randall's father, who have arrived at the property for down time of their own. Agreeing to share the sprawling beach house with each other, the couples end the night partaking in some recreational drugs Randall brought with him. Shortly thereafter, a strange fog rushes into the house, which they chalk up to the drugs, and the group passes out immediately. As Emily wakes up, she knows that something is terribly wrong. With the fog still settling in, Jane covered in lesions, Randall severely sick and all the running water they can access now a disgustingly thick texture, it becomes clear that they — and the world around them — have been exposed to a life-ending illness.
