Can you go to Putney, mate?


Let's go home, asshole.

Take us to the airport.


F*ck it!

I'll see you guys

tomorrow night.






She's OK.

She just had a panic attack.

- Let's get her upright.

- Come on. There you go.

- Hello. Welcome to the house.

- What the f*ck is going on?

Now if you listen

and you don't speak...

I'm sure all of your questions

will be answered.

Now you know how you got here,

but I'm sure you're all wondering...

what you all have in common

to be here...

and most of all why.

Why me?

You can search all you want, but

you'll never find a common thread...

because I have chosen you

quite randomly for who you are...

but a little bit more carefully

for what you are.

Now you're probably

wondering right now...

about all those people who are

out there looking for you...

your friends and your family.

Well, please don't bother...

because they've all been

settled with...

quite easily in some cases.

I want you to consider yourselves

to be mice in a laboratory...

rats in a cage if you will...

because this is the ultimate

test of human character.

Only here, this test is

purely for entertainment.

My entertainment...

and what is this entertainment,

you must be thinking.

Well, right now I'm

watching you all.

Yes, I'm using seventy five


and just as many hidden microphones,

but don't try to find them all...

because you'll never be able to,

but one of you here...

one of you will win

and the one that wins...

will receive five million dollars

for his or her participation.

I'm sure you've all seen

the shows...

but on my show, all you have

to do to win this prize...

is to be the only one to walk

out of this house alive.

You won't be hearing

from me again.

The rest is up to you.

So good luck and may

the best person win.

- Who the f*ck was that?

- Fucking hell!

- What's going on?

- It's OK.

- What are we going to do?

- It's OK, it's OK.

- Well, is that it? Have they gone?

- They can't just leave us here.

- Everyone please, let's keep calm.

- Calm my arse!

He's right.

Everybody calm down...

- and let's think this thing out.

- You don't think this is real!

Come on, this has got

to be some kind of joke!

- Pretty sick joke.

- Yeah well, I'm not laughing.

I need to get the f*ck

out of here now, man!

I don't think it's a joke.

It's a game maybe.

He told us only one will live.

What does that mean?

What, is someone going to kill us?

- Oh my God.

- No, they aren't going to do that.

Are you deaf? That's what

he just said, one person lives!

If they're not going to

kill us then who is?

- What else can he be talking about?

- How do you know what he's gonna do?

Because they left me

here with this!

- F*ck!

- Son of a bitch!

- How the f*ck did you get that?

- Relax. I'm a cop.

Great! One of us has a gun

and it's a fucking white cop!

- Oh God, don't say that!

- Oh yeah. That's fair, isn't it?

All of us are supposed

to try and survive...

but the copper's

left with a gun!

This is so fucked!

It's fucked, man!

It kind of puts the odds a little

bit in his favour, doesn't it?

It's kind of bullshit,

that's what it is.

Last time I saw one of those it

was in my little brother's head...

smashing his face in the ground.

He was sixteen!


Well, that wasn't me, was it?

- Well, it don't make a difference.

- This is not the time.

Mr. Cop, can you put away your gun?

You're making everybody nervous.

Guys, do we know if we're

alone in here? I mean is it safe?

What do you mean, do you

think there's traps or something?
