A Psychological Suspense Thriller with a Twist...

Ten strangers, recruited by an edgy new reality show and marooned on an abandoned island overrun by wildlife.

One dies in a horrible accident.

Nine realize they are all past survivors, alive only because they've beaten incredible odds once before.

One by one, their hidden secrets are revealed.

Eight discover they are trapped. Caught in a game so deadly that the most terrifying experiences of their lives were only its qualifying round, they must now face the greatest danger on the island... each other.

There's nothing deadlier than a survivor-type whose back is against the wall. And one of them is not who he or she claims.

Seven fight to escape.

Six try to solve the mystery of who lured them there and why.

Five... Four... Will anyone survive New Year Island?
