Lucy (Dani Thompson), Pip (Honey Holmes) and Jordan (Loren Peta) are Scream Team, a trio of paranormal investigators that head a TV reality show of the same name - but that said, only Pip really believes in the paranormal, the other two are more in it for the fame and money, as is their producer James  (David Curtis), who usually sees to it that they have some kind of spectacle in their show. But of late, the show's not doing that great anymore, so much so that James learns that they're cancelled. So when he's offered lots of money for filming a special in Bulgaria where the girls are to investigate a string of disappearances in a small village, he's all for it, figuring with the money they could produce a whole new series of the show. However, once in Bulgaria, things don't look as rosey as they seemed anymore, the girls, James and their team, holed up in a small lodge, are in each other's hair almost constantly while they hardly find any leads in the village as most locals shun them and the few who actually talk to them say much more than warning them to be home before dark, while the man who hired them, Zhivko (Ivo Dinkov), is a bit too creepy for their liking and keeps things in the dark almost intentionally, and the footage they are getting is rather on the dull side. The only ray of light is a local bar the girls visit time and again. But then two team members (Dan Abrams, Shane Salter) disappear, they find traces of blood and animal fur in the woods, Zhivko finally opens up about the creepy story that's behind all the disappearances and agrees for them to leave back to the UK on full pay - and they all need to return to the lodge before dark but the sun's already setting ...


A nice riff on the werewolf genre that's very good at keeping the creepiness up without spelling things out (though the title gives one a pretty good clue what it's about), but instead puts its emphasis on the mystery underlying the story, which is carried by a bunch of relatable and fleshed out characters and their interactions, and does a good job keeping the tone on the light, almost comedic side throughout - which than makes the finale all the more impactful. A very nice addition to the werewolf genre for sure.
