Plot – Spoilers:
A convicted killer Malcolm Rivers is due to be executed. A late-night hearing is rushed to determine if previously not-produced evidence is sufficient to pronounce him legally insane.
In the meantime, a group of 11 strangers congregate at a motel during a storm. They include the motel manager, a hooker who’s made enough to start a new life, a family who’ve just been in an accident, the driver of the limo that caused the accident and his passenger – a hasbeen moviestar, a cop and the prisoner he’s transporting, and a recently-wed couple.
One by one the group is killed off and everyone starts suspecting everyone else. So where does the killer Malcolm Rivers fit into all this.
