David (Luke Wilson) and Amy Fox's (Kate Beckinsale) car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. The bickering couple decide to spend the night in a motel, home to a creepy manager named Mason (Frank Whaley). Soon after they discover that the low-budget slasher movies they're watching on the room's television are not fake and were filmed in the very room in which they're staying. They are afraid they'll become a part of a similar snuff film. After lots of in-between bickering, they crawl through an underground tunnel to escape from their room, which leads to the lobby of the motel. David and Amy struggle to get out alive while cameras watch what is going on. They are able to make a 9-1-1 call, which summons a police officer to the premises, but he is killed by one of the accomplices who helps make the films, David is eventually stabbed by one of the accomplices as Amy watches from a secure hiding spot. In the end, Amy kills the thugs with her car and, after a long battle to defeat the manager, succeeds in killing him. The film ends with David regaining consciousness after Amy makes another call to 911.
A sequel is now being made. It will be written by Mark L. Smith, the same writer from the first one, and directed by Eric Bross. It will be starring Trevor Wright as Caleb. For other cast members, go to the link "http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1204979/."
