The thriller stars Christopher Backus ('Among Friends'), John Getz ('The Social Network'), Shirley Knight, Michael Mercurio, Amanda Pace, Rachel Pace, Devin Ratray, Joey Slotnick, Tehmina Sunny and Waleed Zuaiter along with Icelandic hottie Anita Briem -below ('Journey to the Center of the Earth', 'Dylan Dog: Dead of Night'). Check out the plot and DVD artwork below. The flick arrives on DVD here in the UK from 3 September.
"Nine strangers are stuck in an elevator on the 49th floor of an upscale Manhattan high-rise… and one of them has a ticking bomb! But who… and why?
The rising star TV news reporter … building security guard … or soon-to-retire millionaire CEO with his granddaughter? The bond trader … struggling comedian … pregnant office worker and her successful boyfriend …or the elderly widow?
With no escape, each will do anything to survive. Desperation and panic grow as help fails to arrive and people slowly unmask—revealing racial tension, financial scandal, scorned lovers and revenge—with an unthinkable horror becoming the only solution!"
