When You Think The Worst Has Happened....Think Worse


At the beginning, a man is shown trapped by a mask around his face. The captor introduces a tube in his mouth, making him a drink an unknown subtance. The man starts to spit blood, and dies. The captor then smashes his head. The movie then cuts to Jennifer Tree, a young fashion model and cover girl, who has captured the attention of photographers and the public. On an evening out alone, Jennifer is stalked and drugged. She wakes to find herself captive and confined to a cell.

A series of metal bins and numbered lockers abruptly swing open in front of her. They contain personal items taken from her apartment. She is forced to view videotapes containing images of the victims that were tortured previous to her captivity as well as videotaped interviews she had given to the media in the past. Trapped, realizing there is no way out, Jennifer pleads and screams to anyone that might hear her. During her confinement, she is subjected to various forms of psychological and sensory torture. Jennifer eventually finds she is not alone. A young man, Gary, is being held captive in an adjoining cell. The two make contact and try to find out why they are being held.

They find their way out, and a fight ensues between Gary and the captor. Ultimately, Jennifer is drugged once again and wakes up confined to a "torture chair" with Gary. Ready to pull out Jennifer's tooth, Gary insists the captor take his out instead. Back in their cells, Gary and Jennifer become somewhat intimate. Gary later awakens to find that Jennifer has been drugged once again. He takes out a key to an adjoining cell. A tape is shown of a woman lying on her bed with cigarettes and pills scattered everywhere, apologizing to her son for "touching" him. The boy then repeatedly stabs his mother, killing her. He then snaps a picture of his dead mother. In a little corner glancing at the photo, a smirk appears on his face.

Meanwhile, Gary's key opens a door into a house, revealing that Gary and his older brother Ben are actually the captors. Gary joins Ben in the kitchen where they make sushi. Gary tells Ben that he is falling in love with Jennifer. Ben strikes Gary and says "Play them, don't play with them." Ben then puts something in the refrigerator. Gary then stabs him. He then watches the same tape of the woman lying on the bed that was shown earlier. The boy stabbing his mother is revealed to have been Gary looking at a smirking Ben. After the tape, Gary is seen reviewing a series of pictures in an album, when there is a knock at the door. Two detectives are looking for Ben. Gary tells them that his brother is not at the house. The detectives enter the house, getting comfortable and asking to watch a big sports game on TV. One of them flips the channel to the surveillance video of Jennifer sleeping. Seeing this, Gary shoots them both.

He runs down to where Jennifer is being held and tells her that he has killed "them" and that it is time to go. He places Jennifer in a room and tells her not to go. One of the detectives, not dead after all, jumps out at her but she beats him with a bat, believing him to be one of her captors. Jennifer then discovers the albums, and sees that Gary is in all of them. She is then attacked by Ben, who is not yet dead. She manages to finish him off by stabbing him again. After viewing the albums, Jennifer hears the detective's pager ring and she goes through his personal belongings. Gary is seen recording Jennifer and claims she belongs to him and will help her clean the mess up. She tricks him and sprays ammonia in his eyes before running off.

On her way she cuts a series of wires and electrical cords, preventing doors, code entries, and lights from working. Jennifer picks up a flashlight and the gun used on the detectives, but fails to cock it. Gary then throws her on a bed and points the gun at her, explaining why the gun had not fired, while firing a round into the ceiling to demonstrate this and intimidate her. She kicks him in the groin and retrieves the gun from him. This time she cocks the gun. Instead of then shooting him in the head she shoots him in the groin. She then shoots him in the heart and exits the room, leaving the house...

The movie cuts again to the beginning, where the captor is shown to be Jennifer killing a man acussed of murder......has she done this before????
