Horror starring Jensen Ackles as Jake Cummings, an average high school teenager whose life is irrevocably changed when a fellow student introduces him to a video game called 'The Pathway'. After submitting his information into the computer software, Jake finds that he is having visions of a half-goat/half-human creature. After much doubt about the game, Jake uses the pathway to get revenge on his boss. One by one, his friends and family suffer the same fate, death by self-mutilation, always a slow and painful death and an amputated tongue. As Jake tries to unravel the mystery, Marisol (Shannyn Sossamon), the young woman who cares for his crippled mother, aids him. A romance develops between Jake and Marisol. When Jake realizes that The Pathway is the cause of the deaths, he confronts its creator, Dale Kater (Martin Cummins), a Satanist. It is this encounter with Kater that reveals to Jake the identity of the creature and everyone who is associated with its torturous ways.
