A different scene where Liz reveals to Mike why she locked them in.
An alternative beginning with Liz sitting in a chair having flashbacks about the hole, at the end the door of the hole closes.
Not as advertised but a solid little thriller none the less
Liz stumbles towards her boarding school, bloodied and shaken up after being missing for several days. She tells the police psychologist of a party in a hidden bunker planned for her and three friends by her friend Martin. However when Martin doesn't return things turn nasty in the bunker. However when Martin is found by the police he tells a very different story. Slowly the true events are retold in flashback.
I saw the trailers for this and assumed it was another teen slasher I didn't even know it was set in Britain until someone told me. I think the trailer is an example of a studio unsure of how to sell a product and just plumping for the lowest common denominator. However this film rises above that. Instead of being a slasher or a horror it is a thriller with a horror twist. This makes it better it may not be as scary as you expect but it is a better story and is creepy rather than schlocky!
The cast are good despite being young. The weaknesses come in with the adult cast especially the cops who have clearly watched too much Sweeney! However the teens are good and are more than the sort of fodder that is put in teen movies.
Overall this is not what you expect. But it is better than you'd think. The thriller story is gripping because you're not sure what happened in the bunker until the end and I had questions answered as I went. Not great but certainly better than another teen slasher movie.
