A movie I "Saw" this weekend
The participants are not told the real reason they've been gathered together. What little bits of information they do manage to get from the old man are cryptic phrases and nonsensical riddles, often delivered through a tiny man with a strangely-colored face and a crazy voice. One by one, each participant falls victim to some sort of trap or tragedy, as each one succumbs to their own vices and is lost to the madness of the psychotic host's sick twisted game. As the clock runs out, one participant is finally able to figure out the game and "wins," but in an unexpected plot twist he becomes the man's apprentice, chosen as the lone survivor to carry on his legacy. The movie ends with a shot of the psycho host and the "winner," letting the viewer know that the real story has only just begun...
That being said, I think Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a movie that everyone should see.
