WE WERE HERE FIRST

When a young couple moves into the only house in an entire subdivision, a protest by the local teens turns deadly.

Synopsis: A young couple looks for a place to raise a family. They stumble upon the deal of the century. A huge house with all amenities sitting in the middle of a housing development that died on the vine. Their modest means can afford this place, only because it’s in the middle of nowhere. No cell coverage. Nothing but a small band of skateboarders who have come to think of the subdivision as their own skateboard park.
Friends help the couple move. It’s an all-day affair, and there is more than enough room for a sleepover. The move comes off without a hitch. In fact, they finish in time for a subset of the group to find a sports bar. Beer and pizza for some. Peace and quiet for the others. Except for one woman. She takes her yoga mat to the deck to meditate. When the group finds her, she’s been decapitated.
Cell phones are inoperative. The cars and moving van won’t start. Only one vehicle, the car in the garage, runs. Two men take off to call the Sheriff. The others work to keep body and soul together.
The car is wrecked before the Sheriff can be notified. Walking back, one of the men takes an arrow in the chest. Emotions run high as the group chases two goals—a call to 911 and staying alive.
Neither goal is met.
By morning, a single survivor battles a person who wears a mask. The winner will live. The loser joins all the others.
