Juniper St.

Vanessa is a young woman who decides to take a much-needed break from her hectic life by booking an Airbnb for a relaxing weekend away. The Airbnb is situated in a remote area surrounded by lush greenery, and Vanessa is excited about the prospect of disconnecting from the world and enjoying some peace and quiet.

Upon arrival, Vanessa meets the Airbnb host, Malcolm, a middle-aged man with a friendly demeanor. Malcolm informs her that he's currently renovating the basement and apologizes in advance for any noise that may disturb her. Vanessa doesn't think much of it and decides to explore her new surroundings.

As the weekend progresses, Vanessa becomes increasingly uneasy. Malcolm's behavior becomes increasingly strange, and she begins to suspect that he's not who he claims to be. Vanessa starts to hear strange noises coming from the basement and becomes convinced that something sinister is going on.

One night, Vanessa sneaks down to the basement to investigate. What she finds is horrifying - Malcolm has been posing as an Airbnb host to lure unsuspecting victims to his home, where he kills and eats them. Vanessa realizes that she's trapped in the house with a serial killer and must find a way to escape before it's too late.

Malcolm's behavior becomes more erratic, and Vanessa realizes that she's running out of time. She tries to escape, but Malcolm is one step ahead of her, blocking her every move. Vanessa knows that her only chance of survival is to fight back, but it's a race against time.

In a terrifying climax, Malcolm catches up with Vanessa, overpowering her and killing her. He prepares to eat her remains, satisfied that he's found another victim to add to his collection.

The film ends with a haunting shot of the Airbnb, now empty and quiet, with no evidence of the horrors that took place within its walls. The audience is left with a sense of unease, knowing that there are real-life serial killers like Malcolm out there, lurking in the shadows and waiting to strike.
