Open Grave

Synopsis: A man wakes up in a pit of dead bodies with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Fleeing the scene, he breaks into a nearby house and is met at gunpoint by a group of terrified strangers, all suffering from memory loss. Suspicion gives way to violence as the group starts to piece together clues about their identities, but when they uncover a threat that's more vicious - and hungry - than each other, they are forced to figure out what brought them all together - before it's too late.

Wait! Come back!


Please help me!

Help me!

- We should help him.

- Not until we know what's going on.

Maybe he has access.

There's a storm out there.

We don't know what's going on.

He could be dangerous.

He's not the lot of us.

You don't know him.

We know nothing about him.

- Well, he has to eat...

- Yes, he can.

He'll die if we

don't get him out of there.

Not really my main

concern at the moment.

He has no food.

He has no water.

He's not one of us.

We have to take care

of us right now.


- Drop your weapon.

- No.

- Drop your gun.

- Both of you, please don't.

He's here to kill us. I'm going

to blow your f***ing head off.

Drop your gun.

I won't put it down.

You put yours down.

Do it.

Put your gun down.

Tell him to put his gun down.

- Tell him to put his gun down!

- Lukas, please!

Is this your house? Huh?

Whose house is this?

- You killed those people in the pit?

- F*** you!

You killed those people.

Who are you?

Uh, I don't remember.

That's bullshit.

Who are you?

I woke up in a pit. Yeah, I

don't remember anything before.

She helped me, okay? This woman helped me.

I need to talk to her.

You let him out?

You stupid...

- Hey...

- Easy!

You know me?

Why'd you let me out?

I need...

- Get you f***ing hands off me!

- Sorry!

What's wrong with him?

Help me!

Just breathe!

- Get your hands off me!

- What's wrong with him?

Just breathe!


- Here, here, here.

- Look at me, you will be okay.

It's water.

Easy now.

Okay. Okay. All right.

What the hell is going on?

You people know each other?

You just need to breathe.


Hey, who are you, man?

I don't remember who I am.

None of us do.

Okay, we have

no phone and no computer.

There's no way to

contact the authorities.

All we have to go on is this.

So we know our names.

I'm Sharon!

I... Michael.

You've met Lukas.

So this must be Nathan.



I'm Nathan.

I don't know my name.

I didn't have ID.

We also have keys.

I own a Nissan.

I have a key.

- You have cars?

- No.

There's no cars. I've looked

around outside. There's nothing.

Can you understand

what she's writing?

She's writing over and over again.

Can you read this?

What language is this?

- She can't understand you.

- Hey, she helped me, okay?

- Do you know me? Why did you help me?

- I've tried this...

Stop trying!

You're freaking her out.

You know me, okay?

You helped me out of the pit. Don't

look at these f***ing idiots.

It doesn't matter what you

say to her, she can't understand.

- Hey, shut up!

- She doesn't understand you, okay?

- What, is she deaf?

- No! She's not deaf, all right?

She can hear you. She just

doesn't understand English.

She's mute.

But she acts like she knows us.

We all woke up in this house a

half hour before we found you,

and she was already here.

Anything else?

I'm Catholic, apparently.

And that's it?

Well, you also had a gun.

Yeah, you had a gun, too.

I didn't dig it up out of

a pile of dead people.

We're all in the same boat here.

No! We're not

in the same boat.

We were in the same boat. He was

in the boat with all the corpses!

I don't trust you.

I don't trust you.

I don't trust any of you.

Have you checked the house?


We both have this.

Why? What happened?

What happened to us?

I know. What happened?

Hey, where is the girl?

I need to talk to the girl.

Guys, I need to

speak to the girl.

I need you to look

at something for me.

Look at this.

Did you do this?

Did you write this?

Yes. You wrote it. Okay.

What does it mean?

- Hey, guys, come and look at this.
