The only sign of life is an old abandoned shack, which upon closer inspection reveals a note.  It reads:  “If I catch you inside, I will kill you.”  Signed ‘Bob’”  Naturally, this inspires the desire to enter the shack.  This story takes its real life origin and drives it to the limits of imagination as the group enters the shack and discovers the origins of the note, and the true purpose behind it’s warning.  Full of twists and turns that leave the audience guessing what is really going on, Bob is an action/horror/comedy that targets a wide variety of audiences.  It never takes itself too seriously, and evokes themes reminiscent of films such as Army of Darkness, Hellboy, Aliens, and This is the End.
