    • Synopsis
    • ALPHA PAPA meets THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE in this high-octane comedy horror.

      Two very different groups arrive at the same building on the same night after the same plunder. Buried deep within an abandoned Victorian bathhouse, a vast hoard of Nazi treasure remains hidden since the end of WWII.

      One group, led by seasoned thief BROOKS, form a unit of professional cat burglars. Hardened, experienced, and on one last mission before retirement. They believe the priceless treasure forms part of a Nazi hoard smuggled into the country after World War Two.

      The other group, led by council job-seeker retraining officer TIM, are ... well, not so professional. A bunch of misfit unemployed youngsters, who accidentally stumble upon a treasure map, they convince TIM to search the old building as it would be “a good team building exercise”.

      But neither group's ready for the horrors they encounter...

      One obstruction stands between them and riches beyond their wildest dreams. A deranged security guard, the son of one of the soldiers who smuggled the treasure back, has spent decades preparing the building against invasion and set up a labyrinth of deadly and disturbing traps.

      As the two groups venture deeper, the traps become ever more elaborate as the guard unleashes terror and torment in a bloodcurdling battle to the finish.

      One by one they are picked off until only two remain. But do they have the treasure?

      Who will survive the night?
      Why are they being hunted?
      When will the next trap be sprung?
