Open Grave

Now Playing Synopsis: A man who awoke in a mass grave discovers that his escape is only the beginning of his waking nightmare in this thriller from Apollo 18 director Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego. Awakening in darkness on a pile of corpses, a man (Sharlto Copley) suffering from total memory loss escapes with the help of a mysterious stranger. Armed with a pistol, he makes his way to a nearby house to find a small group of people who had also dug their way up out of the earth. They, too, lack any recollection of just how they managed to get into such a grim predicament, and in the desperate search for answers, a dense fog of paranoia descends over the group. Meanwhile, as the various clues to their identities and histories slowly begin to add up, a new threat emerges, forcing the frightened survivors on a frantic race to identify the one factor that binds them all together so that they might live to see another day. Thomas Kretschmann, Josie Ho, and Joseph Morgan co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Sharlto Copley, Thomas Kretschmann, Josie Ho, Joseph Morgan, Erin Richards, Max Wrottesley Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
