Come on man, let's get in the picture.

Big smile.

Woo, woo!

Who wants to make money?




Can anyone hear me?


Hello, hello?

Ryan, is that you?


What the f*ck is going on?

Where have you been?

I need your help.

They want money.

What are you talking about?

They took me...

Who took you?

Took you where?

You have to get me out of here.

Where are you?

It's so hot...

Slow down.

Tell me where you are.

Small room.


There's a heavy door.

It's locked.

Heat is coming down from the ceiling.

The temperature's rising fast.

Is there a small window?


A small window...

How did you know?

'Cause I think we're in the same place.

We're gonna die Ryan, we're gonna die!


We're not gonna die.

Oh jeez, alright.

I'm gonna figure this out, okay?

Hang on.

Just hang on a second.

Wait a minute.

Can you hear that?

Tell me if you can hear this...

I think so.

I don't know.

The banging!

Can you hear the banging?

I'm hot.

They're turning up the heat here...

Help me...

I'm trying to help you!

What about this?

Can you hear this?

What's going on, Ryan?



Hello, is anybody out there?

Do you remember who took you?


I just...

Woke up...

And I was...


Tell me everything

that you can remember.

I was at the hotel...

I think...

Yeah, with those two girls.

No, no please!

What's happening?

Turn it off.


Turn it off!

No, please, don't...


Just make it stop!

Make it stop!

I'm burning!

I'm fucking burning!

Help me!

Help me!





Your call has been forwarded

to an automatic voice message system.

Let me outta here!

Do I have your undivided

attention, Mister Hinds?

How do you know my name?

You don't get to ask anything

but I will give you the chance

to figure out the answer.

What the hell is that supposed to mean?

It means you get one shot

at answering a question.

You're fucking crazy...

That may be the case...

But you're the one locked up.

You wait until I get out of here.

That could be sooner than you think...

Guess the answer and I'll

let you walk free right now.

What's the question?

Two minutes...

As many guesses as you want.

What's the question?

Just guess who I am, Mister Hinds.

Say my name and this

can all end right now.

Two minutes.

You're wasting your time.

What are you hoping to

achieve, Mister Hinds?

Look, I arrived in Houston last night...

We signed a big deal...

We were celebrating.

I Met with the investors

for a drink with Bruce.

There were two girls there,

Erika and Mandy...


The investors...

I don't know.

The investors, you're one of them.

What were their names?


Luke Farell...

Luke Farell.


Karl, Karl, what the f*ck is your name?


Luke Farell, Karl Giussani

and Bob Makeson.

One of them!

You're one of them!

Which one?

I don't know!

How the f*ck should I know?

Oh f*ck you.

Wrong answer.

Hey, the heat!

Can you hear me?

Turn the heat off!

What the?


Oh God.



I'll do whatever you want.

Do you hear me?

Just tell me what you want me to do.

I'll do whatever you want!

Those are the magic words, Mister Hinds.

Whatever I want.

Do you know the story of

the frog in boiling water?

If you place a frog in water

and heat it slowly enough,

the frog will not jump out.

And the frog will be cooked alive.

I'm afraid you're that frog.

How and if you die here

is totally up to you

but I can assure you

that perspiration stains

on your $300 shirt

are the least of your worries.

It's a $500 shirt, asshole.
