Battle Royal meets Office Space meets Lord of the Flies.

Good concept. Fair execution. Predictable characters and standard clichés, but it still had some fun moments. There is a ton of gore for folks that like that. IMO, they dropped the ball with the final boss reveal (it was mediocre at best), however I did like the Final One's response. It was gratifying to see a couple of repulsive characters pay their dues, but I would have preferred some more grey characters (within the first five minutes, you can immediately tell which camp a character will fall with).

Still, I've always liked films/stories where people are trapped together in a dire situation/extreme stress and are forced to react (Night of the Living Dead, Battle Royal, etc.).

I would give it 3 gun room keys out of 5.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

I watched this last night and can't disagree too much with your assessment.
Overall well-done, a bit predictable, but I did think the performances were fairly strong.  The gore was over the top from start to finish, and I did like the little twist at the end.  The idea that someone would spend the money to create an office building in the middle of nowhere, hire a hundred or more employees, rig it with impenetrable, retractable shades, and then let it run for a year before springing the trap on their "lab rats" is downright spooky, though!

I think the most interesting/scariest thing about the movie was the whole "company puts a chip in you" business.

This is actually becoming reality.  They just had it on the news that a company wants to put a small chip in their employees so they don't have to log in, use credit cards in the vending machines, use keycards on doors, etc.  I'm too lazy to find a link right now, but still... kind of creepy, IMHO.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
