reality building

Believing they have been selected for a hot new reality show, Tally and six other strangers arrive by limousine at a large abandoned building. Their charismatic host, Jasper, welcomes them to enter "Reality Building" - a game where they must ascend, floor by floor, obstacle by obstacle, to the building's only exit through the roof. At stake: one million dollars.  After seeing the first contestant executed before their eyes, Tally and the others soon realize that, in this game, elimination is permanent. As they fight to outlast the demonic terror of Jasper's fun house, their humanity is tested when they must vote off team members or suffer the verdicts of Jasper's whimsical games of chance. Their hope dwindles with their numbers, until only Tally is left to face the coldly maniacal Jasper in a savage struggle for survival.

Reality  Building  is  a  wild  ride,  from  start  to  finish.    With  thrills  and  chills,  it  promises  to  deliver  what  every  genre  fan  is  looking  for  and  then some. With  the  tongue-­in-­cheek  wit  of  SCREAM,  the  horror  elements  of  SAW,  and  the  pace  of  QUARANTINE,  the  action  is  fast  and  fun.      The film  centers  on  a  charismatic,  star  host  –  whose  performance  shifts  from  the  captivating,  to  the maniacal  without  ever  losing  the  polish  of  a game-­show  host. He  has  meticulously  and  sadistically  designed  each  floor  to  bring  the  contestants  face  to  face  with  their  deepest  fears.    Their terror  is  his  pleasure. His  sole  purpose  is  to  satisfy  the  audience’s  insatiable  appetite  for  cruel  brutality.

Thrust  into  the  immersive  world  of  Jasper’s  fantastical  imagination,  the  contestants  confront  mortal  danger  at  every  turn.    More  than  that,  their psychological  torture  is  brought  to  a  boil  in  the  “safe-rooms”  at  the  end  of  each  floor,  where  they  must  choose  between  sacrifice  and  survival.   For  them,  this  is  not  a  show,  but  a  primal  struggle  fueled  by  unbridled fear.
