Storyline

A man wakes up in a pit of dead bodies with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Fleeing the scene, he breaks into a nearby house and is met at gunpoint by a group of terrified strangers, all suffering from memory loss. Suspicion gives way to violence as the group starts to piece together clues about their identities, but when they uncover a threat that's more vicious - and hungry - than each other, they are forced to figure out what brought them all together - before it's too late. Written by Tribeca Film

Solid horror film for a genre desperate for originality
6 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Engaging from beginning to end with excellent performances from every member of the cast. In a genre so played out, so overblown, and over exposed, this is a refreshing creation that doesn't go into cliché autopilot mode, mock itself, mock you, or mock the industry.

Sure there are one or two bits that are fair game, but overall it doesn't degenerate into some stylized sexist no talent tit and dick prop running around. Instead you have dialogue. I know, amazing concept; making you continually ask who, what, and why like some kind of horror thriller where the protagonist, antagonist, victim and suspect are all the same person, but at the same time they aren't. Exactly.

Great atmosphere through out with solid sound work, unfortunately the ending doesn't do the rest of the film any justice, but it's rare that any endings in these kinds of film do so -3 points. Highly recommended.
