Two-time Academy Award®-winner* Olivia de Havilland stars in a suspenseful shocker that also features future Oscar®-nominee** James Caan in his first major film role. Alone in her residence over a sweltering holiday weekend, a widow (de Havilland) is accidentally trapped in her home elevator during a power failure. Her meticulous, well-organized world is shattered as the elevator, stalled nine feet above the floor, becomes a claustrophobic chamber – a cage. Unable to escape, her situation becomes even more desperate when the emergency alarm attracts a swarm of terrifying intruders – a drunken derelict (Jeff Corey) and his boozy prostitute friend (Ann Sothern), as well as a trio of young delinquents (Caan, Rafael Campos, Jennifer Billingsley) who embark upon an orgy of wanton vandalism and sadistic brutality that culminates in murder.
