The first scene starts out with an insouciant conversation between two coworkers immured in a matrix of white walls and hallways. But, in a twist that shakes the horror genre, they are not just waiting for emolument but are part of a sacrosanct ritual. In a systemic manner, a foray upon the youthful and prurient is about to begin. The five persona, the whore, athlete, scholar, fool and virgin, would each die and have a short philippic prayer for their obsequies. This tendentious route is not commensurate in different cultures because each one is different. There is a whole panache of ways for this ritual to be carried out. One thing is for sure, though; that  these gods were aficionados of pain and were browbeating these people for results. Without trying to make a cliched homily, this film will be remembered for being a vicissitude of all thriller and horror movies in the future.
