Storyline

Jenna, Renee, Ian and Michael arrive at a lakeside cabin owned by Ian's uncle Wade. Intending to enjoy a carefree weekend, instead, three of them become locked in the hot sauna. First they think its Michael playing jokes on them, but soon realize that help is not coming and they must find a way out before the heat kills them. As the heat rises they are pushed to their physical and psychological limits - staying alive is not easy any more. Breaking a small window - may be the worst thing they can do, because cool air will trick the thermostat to run the heater full blast. They need to get out, but all they can is wait! Wait for what, wait for who?! How long could you wait in the heat up to 250 degree Fahrenheit. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The true event that the movie is based on happened in Georgia, where this film is made and filmmakers are from. 4 friends were in the sauna, one left for the toilet, locking his friends in - exactly as it is shown in the movie. He never came back, and when he woke up he didn't remember that he left them in the sauna, and started to search for them elsewhere. Fortunately no one died since they managed to turn the heater off, but they had to spend over 10 hours in the decreasing heat, until they were found. See more »

Quotes

Ian: I'm just saying I know what the worst could be.
Renee: Oh, yeah? What's that?
Ian: Well, this thing can get up to about 250 degrees. Do you want to risk that? Do you want your skin to fucking melt?

Saunas do not work that way
18 January 2013 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Here's a thought: If you're going to make a film based entirely in a sauna, you might actually want to do a little research on the subject. A gas stove? Really? And why would you go to a sauna in your UNDERWEAR?!

Not that accuracy would save much in this extremely stupid film. Everything that happens in this movie happens simply due to some incredibly bad luck or just plain stupidity. The plot is absolutely pointless and serves no purpose whatsoever. What did this film try to tell us?

All the characters are hollow and one-dimensional. You just simply do not give a damn whether these people survive or not because there is absolutely nothing to relate to.

Absolutely worthless.
