Half the story is that 10 storm-stalled travelers in a Bates-like motel are dying one by one. The other half is a surprise, sort of, in an ornate psychological thriller built on a showy display of clues in a game whose rules aren't explained for arbitrary reasons. John Cusack, Ray Liotta, and Amanda Peet are among the stranded strangers.
