A midnight screening of a 1970s cult horror film becomes a bloodbath after the members of the audience see one of their friends butchered on the big screen, and quickly surmise that there's a madman in the theater who seeks to slaughter them all. It was just another rundown movie house in a small suburban town -- what better place for a screening of a true cult classic? But this isn't your typical horror film, because five years earlier, the director and star of the movie made a bloody escape from a psych ward five years earlier and may still be on the loose. When the film starts to roll and the heckling begins, the atmosphere in the theater is loose and fun. When one of their friends is viciously murdered right before their very eyes - right on the big screen - Laughter gives way to fear as the horrified audience realizes that it is no prank. When they try to run, they realize that the same psycho they just saw on the silver screen has now trapped them all in the theater. With no hope of escape and their numbers thinning fast, the survivors must figure out a way to turn the tables on the very same killer that they once rooted for in the cult slasher flick. Caught between reality and the screen's flickering shadows, they become the unwilling stars of the very horror movie they were watching.
