A young man named Eddie has been locked in the basement of his apartment complex. Living there are a grumpy handyman, a young female reporter, two young women living as roommates, an ex-con, a mob boss, and the members of a rock band, each group or person with their own story. The whole place is booby-trapped, and Eddie gives you the controls to the traps. However, all is not as it seems, and freeing Eddie will only kick-start a deadly mystery surrounding a mysterious statue in the building, and the rumor of a treasure contained within. Can you manage the trap controls and save the day? Written by Anonymous

What is the plot? Well you will never know if you want to win.
1 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

Yes, as with all Sega CD movie games featuring actors this game has a fatal flaw that is common theme with about all of them. This one seems to have better actors than most and it has rather interesting gameplay though rather simplistic. You basically use security cameras to monitor rooms, you have mob type dudes and ninjas are something and when they step on certain points on the screen you push a button and trigger a trap and they get bonked or fall in a hole or something. It is somewhat fun watching them fall in these traps and seeing the different types of traps, but it does get old. As for the fatal flaw you ask? Well you have scenes going on while you are monitoring the rooms, explaining motivations for some of the characters and such. Well if you take the time to listen to these scenes you lose the game as to many of the intruders will break in. What is the point of filming these scenes with this actors and actresses if you can not watch them? So you end up just catching random people without really knowing what the heck is going on, however the ending is kind of funny as you put Eddie (Corey Haim's character) through some real hell.
