And I will leave you in this room to rot.

Any idea who that is?

Let the game begin.

- He knows us.

- Come on.

What do you think?

Probably a joke, right?

Let the game begin.


Follow your heart.

What the hell does

"follow your heart" mean?

There, right next to you, on the toilet.

Come on.

- Anything?

- No solids.

Take off the lid.

I really wish I had checked in there first.

What is it?

Mind passing me the other one?


He doesn't want us

to cut through our chains.

He wants us to cut through our feet.

I think I may know who's done this to us.

- What did you say?

- It's not someone I know personally.

It's just someone I know of.

Jesus Christ! Tell me. Who is it?

The last I heard...

the police still hadn't caught him.

And the only reason I know that

is because I was a suspect.

I'll start from the beginning.

This one's not fresh anymore.

At least three weeks out.

Victim's a 46-year-old male.

Died of massive blood loss.

Mostly through the femoral artery.

He started at the back of the cage...

and tunneled his way

through that razor wire so fast...

it's amazing he got as far as he did.

Cut himself so deep, we found

traces of stomach acid on the floor.

We also found this.

Hello, Paul.

You're a perfectly healthy, sane,

middle-class male.

Yet, last month, you ran a straight razor

across your wrists.

Did you hurt yourself

because you truly wanted to die...

or did you just want some attention?

Tonight, you'll show me.

The irony is that if you want to die

you just have to stay where you are.

But if you want to live,

you'll have to cut yourself again.

One path through the razor wire to the door.

But hurry. At 3:
00 that door will lock...

and then this room becomes your tomb.

How much blood will you shed

to stay alive, Paul?
