Welcome to a world where death is certain but life is not. Deep in the woods of a sunless forest dwells a strange race of mutant cannibals who fancy human flesh for nourishment. They've been driven from their world, banished from society, and must survive in the woods on their own...with only their primal instincts of hunting and killing for food. When a toxic blast almost annihilates them into extinction, some escape and form a pack of mutated monsters feeding off humanity and the vast wildlife around them...until people start entering their domain and become their main course. Backpackers, hikers and hunters all start disappearing, torn to pieces for the tasty delicacy of their fresh flesh offerings. Eventually, the mutants precious resources start to dwindle; winter is on the horizon, and hibernation is imminent. A honeymoon couple celebrating their upcoming wedding are hiking and picnicking in the woods. Soon their romantic excursion becomes a fall from paradise when they encounter this strange breed. And what devilish atrocities await them as the couple is taken hostage and not used as basic consumption, but as a means of escape from the creature's dying habitat? Peril into the dark and strange world of The Banished, where beauty and savage beast meet...and life is just a heartbeat away from ending.
