Horror thriller directed by Greg McLean and written by James Gunn, which follows employees of the Belko Corporation who after noticing that their Colombian colleagues have not arrived for work, office worker Mike (John Gallagher, Jr.) spots some unfamiliar security guards entering a large hangar nearby. Moments later, a voice comes over the building’s PA system and calmly explains that the employees must kill a certain number of their co-workers, if not, they will be killed themselves.
While their boss, Barry Norris (Tony Goldwyn), tries to calm the troops, Mike belatedly realizes that something truly sinister is going on and it soon becomes clear that friends and colleagues are now suddenly enemies in a bloody and brutal battle to the death.
