Help! Someone help me!

Is someone there?

Oh, shit. Im probably dead.

- You're not dead.

- Who's that?

Turn on the lights!

Wish I could.

What the f*ck is going on? Where am I?

I don't know yet.

What is that smell?

I don't see a thing, asshole.



No one can hear you.

- What the f*ck is this?

- Calm down. Just calm down.

- Are you hurt?

- I don't know. Yeah!

What's your name?

My name is very fucking confused.

What's your name? What's going on here?

My name is Lawrence Gordon. Im a doctor.

I just woke up here. Just like you.

- Recognize that man?

- No.

- Do you have any idea how you got here?

- No.

- What's the last thing you remember?

- Nothing.

I went to bed in my shit-hole apartment

and woke up in an actual shit-hole.

What about you?

There's not much to tell really.

I was on my way home from work

and I don't remember anything else.

First dead body I've ever seen.

Look different in real life.

They don't move.

From the looks of these chains...

someone didn't want us

to go very far either.

- Can you see any scars?

- What?

This is what they do.

They kidnap you and drug you...

and before you know it, you're in a bathtub

and your kidneys are on eBay.

- No one has taken your kidneys.

- How can you tell from way over there?

Because you'd either be in terrible agony

or you'd be dead by now.

Trust me.

- What are you, a surgeon?

- Yeah.

So, you going to tell me your name or what?


Well, Adam...

what we need to do...

is start thinking about why we are here.

Whoever brought us here

could've killed us by now.

But they didn't.

They must want something from us.

Question is what.

- That clock.

- What about it?

- It's brand-new.

- So?

So somebody obviously

wanted us to know the time.

Wait. I think I might be able

to reach the door.

What is that?

Excuse me.

- It's a tape.

- Where did you find it?

It was in my pocket.

It says "Play me. "

Come on.

Throw it over here.


- Use your shirt.

- What?

Your shirt.

Come on.

It won't work.

Look around.

There must be something else you can use.

- There's nothing.

- There must be something.

Come on. You can do it.

Come on. Again.

Rise and shine, Adam.

You're probably wondering where you are.

I'll tell you where you might be.

You might be in the room that you die in.

Up until now,

you simply sat in the shadows...

watching others live out their lives.

What do voyeurs see

when they look into the mirror?

Now, I see you as a strange mix...

of someone angry and yet apathetic.

But mostly just pathetic.

So are you going to watch yourself

die today, Adam?

Or do something about it?

I don't get it.

Throw me the player.

No. You throw me your tape.

Look, we're going to have to work together

if we want to get out of here.

Now, just throw it to me.

Im not going to risk breaking it.

You throw me your tape.

Dr. Gordon. This is your wake-up call.

Every day of your working life,

you have given people the news...

that they are going to die soon.

Now you will be the cause of death.

Your aim in this game is to kill Adam.

You have until 6:00 on the clock to do it.

There's a man in the room with you.

When there is that much poison

in your blood, the only thing left to do...

is shoot yourself.

There are ways to win this...

hidden all around you.

Just remember:

"X" marks the spot for the treasure.

If you do not kill Adam by 6:00...

then Alison and Diana will die, Dr. Gordon.

And I'll leave you in this room to rot.

Let the game begin.

Give me that. Now.

...then Alison and Diana will die,

Dr. Gordon.
