1997 Canadian horror flick that tells the story of a group of people who suddenly find themselves in a bare 14x14 room with six doors. One door leads to another 14x14 room, while the others all lead to horrible demises. They must find a way out, figure out the system, before they run out of air, die of hunger or loose it and kill each other. All three possibilities seem to become more and more likely the longer the movie progresses. And their biggest problem is that they have no idea if there even is a system or a way out.

I gotta say, I didn’t love this movie. The acting is pretty second rate and the story doesn’t really go anywhere. While the methods of death are creative, what happens in the room otherwise is all pretty conventional. The people have pasts they don’t want to disclose, they begin to question whether or not there’s a way out, they fight amongst each other, one of them may be a mole, etc. In other words, all the stuff happens that you’d expect to happen in a movie like this. In other words, it wasn’t awful, but it’s not all that good either. A definite Saturday afternoon sort of movie.
