John woke up in a pit of dead bodies with no memories. he fleeted the scene and broke into a house where he heard a group of people were arguing. they were all strangers to each other, suffering from memory loss. the urge to survive triggered suspicions, which eventually led to violence as they started to uncover their identities. but at the same time, they also found a treat more vicious than each other. they were forced to work together and figure out the mystery before it was too late.
the film was smart and constantly had us trying to solve the mystery ourselves. the suspense started the very instant the film started. the heavy and dark atmosphere supported it very well. it was easy to get absorbed into the film as long as the we were able to follow the mass amount of dialogues. other than gores, there were also a few good scares and action scenes to speed up the pace every now and then. despite knowing none of the actors and had no expectations whatsoever, we were pleased with the film and its uniqueness.
