Description: Ten people gather together at a complex named ?Ankikan? after hearing of a short term job paying 112,000 Yen ($1,236 USD) per hour. The ten people are informed that they will be monitored 24 hours a day for 7 days straight in a psychological experiment. They are then sent to individual rooms with a different weapon located in each room. Once they are locked in they learn the rules of the psychological experiment. 1.) Each person must return to their room by 10 PM. 2.) At the end of 7 days or when there are only two surviving members left alive the experiment will end. The next day a person is found shot to death. Now, what looked like a dream job will turn into a nightmare ...
What money will do to people
If you saw a job ad that said that if you can survive seven days in a remote underground house, you’ll be paid 112,000 yen per hour, would you do it? 10 people (5 men and 5 women) decide that despite how far fetched this sounds, they want to try this out.
When they arrive in the house they are told to give up their belongs and enjoy the full experience. They must also remain in their rooms after 10pm and not leave until morning. If they leave their room, then they’ll be punished. If a crime happens the group must vote for a criminal and said criminal will be placed in the prison. The criminal, along with the one who accuses them and the one who died, will receive a money bonus. The game ends when the seven days are over or when there are two survivors left.
When someone dies, it doesn’t take long for the group dynamic to change from a carefree one to one filled with paranoia and fear. As others continue to die, the survivors realize that they can not escape until the game is over.
I really enjoy psychological dramas, so I instantly wanted to watch this. It starts off as a game of what would you do for money, but overall the theme is paranoia and what people would do if they are in that situation.
Not only are they stuck there, but their turmoil is broadcasted to the world. Kind of making one wonder, "Who would watch people being tortured like that?" Sad thing is, if you watch the movie you’re one of those people. Thankfully, it’s fictional. Thankfully.
There are some predictable parts and the majority of the characters are not that developed, but the film was still interesting to watch. This sort of thing has been done before and I’m sure it’s been done better, but this was still enjoyable.
