A group of strangers awaken in a mysterious square room, with hatches in each of the walls. Not knowing how or why they are there they begin to look for an exit, travelling through a series of identical, interconnected rooms. Soon however it becomes clear that some rooms contain lethal traps and as the group become more tired and desperate, tempers flare and their frustrations turn on each other. This remake of Vincenzo Natali’s claustrophobic sci-fi has a more industrial look and feel with subtle changes to the original story that provide a modern twist about the nature of society.

This film contains scenes of strong bloody violence and gore.
