At first everything goes to plan, but once inside the labyrinthine mall, Kelly and her fellow pledges find themselves locked in, and they're not alone. Who is the stranger stalking Kelly and her randy teen friends through the department stores shadowy corridors? And how is this unseen assailant connected with Kelly's terrible recurring nightmares of a man burning in agony?

Rewind or Die (aka House of VHS) (US/CA): A group of six friends from around the world descend upon an old abandoned house in the French countryside. Soon, they discover an old VCR and a stack of VHS tapes, all filled with vintage horror movies.

VHS is not dead... you are!
