‘Open Grave’ Trailer

What would you do if you awoke in a pit full of dead bodies with no memory of who you were or how you got there? That's the dilemma faced by Sharlto Copley in director Gonzalo López-Gallego's (Apollo 18) latest thriller Open Grave. Watch as one man struggles to learn the truth about his dire situation. In theaters and on VOD this December.

The high-concept thriller follows a man who wakes up in a pit of dead bodies with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Fleeing the scene, he breaks into a nearby house and is met at gunpoint by a group of terrified strangers, all suffering from memory loss. Suspicion gives way to violence as the group starts to piece together clues about their identities, but when they uncover a threat that's more vicious than each other, they are forced to figure out what brought them all together - before it's too late.
