Adam (Leigh Whannell) and Dr. Lawrence (Cary Elwes) wake up to find themselves chained to some rusty pipes in a hell hole of a chamber. Between them is a dead body lying in a pool of blood holding a gun. Neither of the men can figure out why or how they came to be trapped here but with a certain set of clues, they both find small microcassette tapes and the dead guy has the player. Once they struggle to get the player, the tapes start to explain the "game" has been set before them. Dr. Lawrence needs to kill Adam in eight hours in order to save his family.
In the outside world, Detective David Tapp (Danny Glover) is becoming obsessed with finding the person responsible for some gastly self induced murders that have been surfacing. Will he be able to find the person responsible in time?
