Five highly qualified applicants interview for a coveted job with the Carcharias Corporation, a powerful conglomerate whose business practices are shrouded in mystery. On the night before the last round of interviews, they are all kidnapped and drugged. The next day, they wake up trapped together in a locked room without any hope of escape. Soon the true nature of their situation is revealed when they receive a phone call from the mysterious CEO of Carcharias, known only as The Employer. He informs them that they are about to experience the final interview, but it's not at all what they were expecting. Written by Hyrax Entertainment

You've seen it a million times
30 June 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Well that was boring, halfway through I began fast forwarding through the rest.

The premise of people trapped in a room, is old. People trapped in a room for a job, has already been done too (can't remember the name of the movie though).

The production value is inexistent. My HDCam makes better pictures than what I've seen here. Acting is bad, lighting is awful, score is generic, nothing in this movie is new.

McDowell played 6 minutes in this movie, he probably just needed a morning to get the filming done. Well, lately he showed up in Z-Grade movies anyway. Seeing him casted is a strong indicator for a poor movie.

Please excuse my low quality review, but I just did it to balance the 10/10 fake reviews written by the PR guys.
