Now We Know That Snowmen Exist

Written by Michael Spencer


Five women go camping in a remote mountain range. None return.


Susan, Chloe, Hayley, Rachel and Lisa. Each has their own reasons for needing to get away. But what starts as a camping trip takes a dark turn when they start to question if they’re really alone on the mountainside. Each has heard the Legend of the Snowmen, but what really awaits the girls outside the relative safety of their tent - and more importantly, do they really know who’s inside it?


Based upon the real events of the Dyatlov Pass Incident this psychological horror transfers events to the modern day, but explores the mysteries that have remained unsolved since the 1950s. Why was the tent cut open form the inside out? Why were the bodies partially dressed in each others’ clothing? And what was meant by the group’s chilling final journal entry; 


‘We know now that snowmen exist’
