"Either by direct action, or conscious inaction, I have something to do with everyone's death," says the man in Interrogation Room 4, and he might actually be telling the truth. After a gruesome multiple murder, Dean McCallum, a seemingly good and decent man, walks into a cafe covered in blood. Brought in for questioning, detectives Jared Lamb and Reina Herrera begin a series of interrogations to determine if McCallum is a psychopath, serial killer or suffering from multiple personalities. Yet McCallum's increasingly bizarre and unsettling comments, his paranormal awareness of things unknowable to him, and disturbing peripheral occurrences, suggest there may be otherworldly influences. Now they must determine if McCallum could be possessed by demons, be the Devil himself, or if there is something even more shocking to consider. Once the truth is revealed, everything they believe in will be questioned and the foundations of their very reality will be shaken.

Now let the truth be told.


Did You Know?


Despite an extremely small budget many of the film's numerous settings were built sets. Director/production designer Daniel C. Nyiri is a scenic designer with experience in making the most out of limited resources. In the film hallways could only open onto one finished room at a time because the building materials (false walls, practical doors etc.) were re-used to save on expenses. One of the film's production offices was transformed into multiple settings. Some furniture purchased for sets was carefully disassembled after shooting and returned to their boxes exactly as they were originally packed (the art dept. used reference photos to insure this). They were then returned for a refund. Other furniture pieces were fake; one detective's unique bed was little more than a fake headboard attached to a false wall, and the scene in the lead detective's bedroom includes a completely false closet constructed just for the shot.
