Official synopsis:

A group of aspiring actors are chosen for a reality horror TV show. In the show, they must survive being chased by a killer. The program is filmed with scores of tiny cameras, in a cabin and the surrounding forest.


What the contestants don’t know is that this murderer is a real killer and the television program is a ruse. Deep in an underground bunker, a psychotic voyeur watches as life and death play out for his amusement. The only prize, here, is survival…




” …gives you an ending that makes you feel like the movie is either unfinished, or they just ran out of money. There’s not even a hastily tacked on ending like Raw Meat (a guilty pleasure of mine) — it just abruptly ends in the middle of the action. And that was unforgivable. Too bad, when watching Tyson in creep mode was icky fun.” Alan Dorich, Letterboxd

” …standard v.o.d. shitty 2010s slasher but the acting really took me to some kinda ecstatic bad movie nirvana […] also this literally ends in the middle of a scene!!” pd187, Letterboxd
