Synopsis

Thirteen-year-old Rachel “Ray” Gardner suddenly wakes up in the basement of a disused building with no recollection of how she got there. Desperately looking for a way out, she wanders around aimlessly only to run into a mysterious figure with a bandaged face carrying around a giant scythe like some kind of grim reaper. The mysterious man, who turns out to be a serial killer, introduces himself as “Zack”. Hoping to find a way out of the building and back to her parents, Ray reluctantly teams up with the scythe wielding murderer and heads for the next floor…
