Hell Fest is introduced as a horror theme park, which travels across the country during the Halloween season. A young girl from Cincinnati is shown to be separated from her group during one of the mazes. There, she is confronted by a masked figure known entire as "The Other" (Stephen Conroy). She recognizes The Other as a man who had been following her and her group of friends the night. The Other attacks the girl, stabbing her in the gut before hanging her. The young girl's corpse appears to blend in with the other prop bodies as The Other leaves the scene. Natalie (Amy Forsyth) is shown to be arriving at her former apartment where her best friend, Brooke (Reign Edwards), still resides. She greets her old friend, but is disappointed to learn that a former classmate, Taylor (Bex Taylor-Klaus), whom Natalie does not get along with is living with her. Though Natalie's visit was planned, Brooke is shown to have been uncertain that Natalie would actually arrive as she had been distant of late due to school and work. As such, Brooke and Taylor arranged a visit to Hell Fest with Brooke's boyfriend Quinn (Christian James), Taylor's boyfriend Asher (Matt Mercurio), and their respective friend Gavin (Roby Attal), who is attracted to Natalie. The group meet at Hell Fest where Gavin hands all of them VIP wrist bands so that they can skip the lines. At the same time, The Other arrives wearing worn-out and steel-toed boots. The Other notices a girl named Britney insult a worker at the amusement park. After Britney walks into The Other and dismisses him as not being scary, he targets her, stealing a knife from a worker making snow cones. The group arrive at a haunted maze where Natalie, Brooke, and Taylor get separated from the group. As the girls are about to finish the maze, they watch as Britney appears, disheveled and in fear, telling them that a man is after her.
