Fear for your life. FBI Agents Hank Garrison and Billy Boddicker are called in to try to piece together the murders of three people found in a Massachusetts house. When a video tape turns up at the crime scene, they soon realize that the murders were nothing more than a series of sick and twisted psychological experiments that turned out to be deadly. Now it's a race against the clock to try and solve the elaborate riddle the killer has left for the agents. And while they're trying to piece together the puzzle, the murderer is getting ready to conduct a second deadly experiment; one involving eight college students and the things they fear most. Lost in the abundance of clues and suspects, the agents are part of their own experiment- one where time is running out and failure may mean the deaths of many. Will the murderer be found? Will the potential victims be saved? Or will the experiments end up leaving everyone scared to death?
