It all begins with a text message. An anonymous message sent to the cell phones of a dozen young men and women. The message is an invitation to attend one killer of a party. Just who sent the message no one knows, but it turns out to be an invitation no one can refuse, but which everyone will regret. Inside the doors of a dilapidated mansion, they gather, eat, drink, party, and have the time of their lives - that is, until it's time to go. The front door doesn't open; the back door doesn't open. Doors that once led to familiar rooms now lead to new ones; some doors open to yet other doors, and some go straight to dead ends. Only one thing remains constant: every door is a trap, leaving only one way out. Written by Kennedy Goldsby

I must agree with the prior scathing review
1 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not even a movie. It's a MESS! Incoherent incompetence. Was there a script? Did anyone read the script (if there was one) before greenlighting this project? No story line. No character arcs. No hooks. No set ups, and thus, zero payoffs. The majority of the cast don't even know they're in a scene. Obviously the filmmakers just cast their friends or squeezes. With a couple exceptions, the 'acting' was atrocious. Even the great narrator's voice, and one or two decent acting performances were completely overpowered by the total lack of clarity in the clumsy-ass storytelling. As for editing? Well, a story should arise out of the edit bay. BUT, it needs to be on the page first, and then in the can. I dunno, maybe the editors had little decent footage to work with. All movies have outtakes. But if what is actually on the screen here was the best stuff they shot, then this thing was doomed from the onset. The makers of this POS have no business making movies. Uggggghhhhh. Painful.
