Storyline

Best friends, Steve and Luke, set out to create a short film for their Film Studies class' final project. Over their objections, Luke persuades Steve and their film's cast members, Natalie and Quint, to deviate from the planned shooting schedule and film their final scene in an abandoned warehouse. Inside they discover a cache of guns and drugs, and find a man savagely beaten and being held hostage by a merciless drug cartel. Before they can make their escape and get help, cartel enforcers return and heinously murder their hostage. Realizing they are not alone, the cartel sicarios hunt down to execute the film students that have witnessed their crime. Relentlessly determined to kill them, the college classmates must evade capture and survive against these hitmen, or become their next victims. Driven down into the massive subterranean labyrinth of the warehouse, the students come across a group of captive women held as human trafficked sex slaves, the cartel's secret drug processing ...

Solid Small Budget Thriller
16 September 2019 | by WillWatchForFoodSee all my reviews

This movie has a great premise in that four kids witness a cartel murder and try to escape being killed themselves.

The story was well crafted and held my interest. The dialogue was natural, entertaining and not full of fluff for the sake of dialogue. Each character has their own personality and it shows. We get to know them well and are invested in their escape.

I do wish they made it to the warehouse earlier in the movie, and we got to explore more inside cartel building to see what other scares were lurking around.

Overall good small budget thriller thats worth the watch.
