Jump Scare Rating: SIngh uses architecture, landscapes, dungeons and everyday places to illustrate the tortured mind of a serial killer. Around every turn is an unexpected, fun and oftentimes haunting jump scare.

Synopsis: A child psychologist specializing in “virtual reality treatments” teams up with an FBI agent to enter the mind of a deranged serial killer who enjoys suspending himself, by the use of cables and hooks through his back and watching his victims in a large glass cell slowly being filled with water. It’s a race against time in a sick and twisted mind before the next victim’s time run out.
