is mainly about Adam (Leigh Whannell) who wakes up and finds himself trapped in an abandoned toilet. Opposite him is Lawrence of the same fate (Cary Elwes)-they were chained to their legs, and they were surprised to find that there was a terrifying dead man lying between them. The dead man was dripping with blood, holding a VCR in his left hand and a gun in his right.
A tape was put in Adam’s pocket, and he quickly put it in the VCR. The tape said that Lawrence must kill Adam before 6 o’clock tonight, otherwise the two will die together, and Lawrence’s family will not be spared. And the blood from the dead man in front of him was extremely poisonous.
A bloody death game begins. In the few remaining hours, they must find clues and escape from hell. At the last moment, when they thought they would see the sun again, a new round of nightmare had just begun.
