Street-smart Laquita Johnson has high hopes for a fresh start at her new school, but those hopes are halted when the dean forces her on a field trip with the cheese-loving, dim-witted students of Archepology 101 led by the daffy Professor Thompson. On the bus, each 80's student archetype is in attendance, but once the group makes it to the haunted woods of Black Holler, roll call becomes impossible! The campers were warned that the woods were dangerous, but they were all too busy hooking up, drinking beer and eating cheese to get the message. With her classmates disappearing left and right and with everyone seemingly oblivious to the dangers around them, Laquita has to confront her troubled past in order to fulfill her destiny, escape the horrors of Black Holler, and save some of the students along the way. It’s about to get campy in this comedic homage to the horror movies and pop culture of the 1980’s!
