Thriller. Chloë is a rising star of the model world. Having just arrived in London from America, and having been the victim of several anonymous telephone calls, she leaves for a romantic weekend in Devon with a new boyfriend, Ned. Chloë is soon unnerved by the rest of the houseguests, who behave oddly, in particular Stan, an ex-musician. Most of the guests leave unexpectedly, leaving Chloë in the hands of Stan and his friends, including Gordon, a sinister young man who keeps a video diary. When Chloë eventually wakes and finds a video of other young girls who have been abused while drugged, she tries to escape, but is held by Stan. Her escape depends on Stan's mute daughter, Theresa, who is also staying at the house - and her anonymous telephone caller.
