The couple are warned not to open one particular room on the second floor of an old building, which is always kept locked.  One day, the wife decides to open the door out of curiosity triggering off a series of horrific accidents.

The film boasts no famous names, but critics are praising it for its outstanding storyline, makeup and special effects.

Jiang has a long pedigree in horror movies and is a Golden Horse Award and Hong Kong Film Award winner. His most famous movies include "Illusion Apartment" which came out in 2010 and "Cold Pupil", released in 2013.
