Oscar and Golden Globe-winner Geoffrey Rush ("Quills," "Shakespeare in Love") stars in this chilling remake of William Castle's cult classic. Five strangers are each offered a chance to earn one million dollars if they can survive a night in a house that was once an insane asylum run by a deranged and sadistic doctor. But what starts out as a harmless birthday prank soon turns into a night of horrific terror. Co-stars Bridgette Wilson ("The Wedding Planner," "Love Stinks"), Taye Diggs ("How Stella Got Her Groove Back," "Go"), Peter Gallagher ("Mr. Deeds," "American Beauty"), Ali Larter ("American Outlaws," "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back"), Chris Kattan ("Undercover Brother," TV's "Saturday Night Live"). Famke Janssen ("X-Men," "GoldenEye") and singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb. Produced by Joel Silver ("The Matrix" trilogy, the "Lethal Weapon" franchise) and Robert Zemeckis ("Thir13en Ghosts," "What Lies Beneath").
