247F is a 2011 horror-thriller film directed by Levan Bakhia and Beqa Jguburia, starring Scout Taylor-Compton, Christina Ulloa, and Travis Van Winkle. The movie revolves around a group of four friends – Jenna (Taylor-Compton), Renee (Ulloa), Michael (Van Winkle), and Ian (Michael Copon) – who decide to take a weekend trip to a remote cabin in the mountains. However, things take a terrifying turn when they get locked inside a sauna, leaving them trapped and struggling to survive against increasingly hazardous conditions.

The film opens with a group of friends, Jenna, Renee, Michael, and Ian, heading towards the mountains for a weekend getaway in a cabin. Jenna plans to spend her vacation relaxing and soaking in the hot tub, while Michael intends to party and have some fun. When they reach the cabin, they find the sauna inviting and decide to use it. However, things go awry when they get trapped inside the sauna, with no way to escape.

As the temperature inside the sauna begins to rise, the four friends begin to panic. They try using a showerhead to cool themselves down and create a vent for fresh air, but their efforts are in vain. Their phones and other electronic devices are also out of range, leaving them with no way to call for help.

As time passes, the friends' situation deteriorates rapidly. They start to hallucinate, becoming increasingly delusional due to the intense heat. Jenna imagines that she is back in her childhood home, with her father telling her stories about Native American rituals, while Michael becomes paranoid and aggressive. The group dynamics start to break down as their survival instincts kick in, and they begin to turn on each other.

Just as things seem all but lost, Ian remembers that he has a lighter in his pocket. The group decides to start a fire with the wood in the sauna to create smoke that will attract the attention of any nearby rescuers. However, the flames soon become uncontrolled, and the cabin catches fire, throwing the friends into a new wave of terror.

The movie builds the tension and suspense well, with an eerie and ominous atmosphere that is heightened by the claustrophobic setting. The hot, dark, and cramped space of the sauna creates a sense of unease in the viewer and sets the stage for the events to come.

The performances of the cast are commendable, with Scout Taylor-Compton delivering a standout performance as Jenna. She portrays her character's fear and desperation well, making the viewer empathize with her struggles. Christina Ulloa, Travis Van Winkle, and Michael Copon, too, do a good job in their respective roles.

The cinematography, sound design, and production design are all well-executed, creating an immersive and intense experience for the viewer. The close-up shots of the characters' faces and the use of dim lighting add to the film's sense of claustrophobia and grimness.

On the downside, some of the plot points and character arcs could have been explored in more detail, leaving some viewers feeling unsatisfied. Additionally, the movie falls into some horror movie tropes, with characters making illogical decisions and behaving in ways that place them in danger.

In conclusion, 247F is a suspenseful and intense horror-thriller that delivers on its promise of a gripping and terrifying premise. The cast and crew create a truly unnerving atmosphere that will leave the viewer on the edge of their seat. While not a perfect film, it is well worth a watch for fans of the genre.

247F is a 2012 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 27 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.8.
