A nightmarish descent into madness inside the confines of a hotel room, this sinister film will haunt you for days on end.

Tobin Wade, a theatre actor poised to perform in his Broadway breakthrough role, must return to his Australian hometown after the breakdown of his long term relationship and the sudden death of his father. Stuck in a hotel room before the funeral, Tobin begins to unravel, not ready to confront a past long-left behind. When Tobin begins to notice strange and sinister occurrences in his room, he realises he’s not in there alone, and, unable to leave, he has no choice but to face whoever or whatever is in this room with him.
