Summary

Teenagers Bill and Jane are taking a late night walk into a forest. Things become heated when Jane brings up Bill's traumatic experiences. They reconcile but soon Bill starts becoming paranoid when he hears weird sounds coming from the trees. Suddenly they are attacked by a hooded figure. Bill wakes up at a hospital bed where he sees a creepy male nurse staring at him with a smile. A second female nurse tells him that policemen are waiting to talk to him. He is interrogated and the policemen who tell him that Jane was murdered. They do not believe Bill's version of the story as they claim CCTV footage did not show anyone else entering or leaving the forest at that time. They then bring up the violent murder of his mother when he was a boy, in which the assailant was never found. Meanwhile we see flashbacks of Bill's mother shouting at him, a young terrified Bill and a hooded figure with bloody clothes waiving goodbye to him. Bill breaks down and becomes aggressive to the policemen who ask him again to tell them the truth about Jane's death. They leave the room for a bit. Bill cries and we see scratch marks on his hands. He looks terrified to the chair opposite him where he sees the creepy man from the hospital staring at him with a smile waving at him.

But, also, Bill has scratches on his arms. Was he the attacker? The police claim there was no one else in the forest....
