“Rainman meets The Most Dangerous Game”

THE EXCURSION

Rainman meets The Most Dangerous Game . . .

It was supposed to be a fun excursion. A rejuvenating get together for Charly Highsmith and her neurodivergent brother. All she wanted to do was reunite with her cousins and play their childhood game up at the cabin. Relive old times. Win.

No. She wanted more than to win. She wanted her cousin, Amanda, to lose.

But when a blizzard buries the cabin before the game can start, the group becomes stranded deep within the Colorado Rockies. A stranger appears and claims the cabin as his own, forbidding anyone to leave.

He’s hiding something in the boathouse.

Charly sees that look in her brother’s eyes. His anxiety takes over. It’s too late. He bursts out into the blizzard, sprints along the lake, and disappears into the forest.

The stranger doesn’t react. Instead, he stands at the window and starts to tell hunting stories.
