Find a chair and you can stay, But if you don't you'll go away.

The last survives another day... Pop Goes the Weasel.

Welcome to Junior's world where six invited guests, trapped in a room, play a deadly game of musical chairs for their lives.

Every ten minutes "Pop Goes the Weasel" signals the start of another round, and the horrific end of another player. Sit you live, stand you die- this is Junior's simple, twisted rule.

Seven begin the game, only one will end it. Who will it be? Grab a chair and find out. Very poorly acted movie that is very derivative and implausible. Think about it: there's a guy in the room with you killing people. Why not attack him? There are more of you than he. And if he got in, there must be a way out.

It's very slow moving as well and talkie which is a problem when the acting is so bad. In better hands, this could have been a good movie, but it needed someone who could think it through better.
