In the Sangre De Cristo Mountains in New Mexico, a group of five students are on a GPS Internet treasure hunt. Amber takes video as the others find a stone box. However, it’s much older than they expected and Noah identifies it as Aztec. Eve finds a way to open it and Marty takes out an old pot with something inside. Eve opens it and they discover it contains liquid blood. Eve dips her finger in it and they wonder how it didn’t clot. Amber takes the pot and inadvertently spills the blood, and the light in the chamber starts to fade...

Episode Quotes
Host: (opening voiceover) Five close friends looking for a last good time before graduating college and going their separate ways. But their light-hearted search is about to take a dark turn. For the cave they're exploring isn't an ordinary cave, it's a passageway leading directly into The Twilight Zone.

Host: (closing narration) The sun has returned and the grateful world is warm again but for these four survivors, a bitter chill remains. Haunted by uncertainty they can find no peace of mind, no escape from the shadows of doubt, no light to guide them out of the murky depths of The Twilight Zone.
