Editor's NoteFor years, it's been tradition that Aaron Tyler (Johnathon Schaech, PROM NIGHT) has his buddies over for a weekly poker game. This Monday, however, is a little unusual. After discovering a burglar in the kitchen, Aaron and his friends accidentally kill the intruder and, rather than breach their one true refuge from the real world, decide to dispose of the body without involving the authorities. But the burglar may not have been alone, and the witness seems to be exacting a grisly revenge. Judy Reyes (SCRUBS), Johnny Messner (RUNNING SCARED), Loren Dean (ENEMY OF THE STATE), and Lori Heuring (MULHOLLAND DR.) star in this tense thriller.
