Young brothers Alex and Daniel Le Domas (Adam Brody) are seen running through the halls of a house. Daniel, the older brother, leads Alex around the house and finally has Alex hide in a closet when a man approaches him, begging Daniel to help him. Daniel looks at him for a moment before yelling, "He's in here!" The man runs but is stopped by members of Daniel and Alex's family in masks and with different weapons. One of them shoots the man in the chest, and a woman in a wedding dress pleads for them to stop. The man is picked up off the ground and dragged into a room. The door of the room then shuts behind them. Thirty years later, Alex has returned home to marry his fiancée, Grace, a former foster child eager to finally have a family. On their wedding night, he tells her that, as tradition, every outside addition to the family must play a game. Grace has to draw a random card, and the game they have to play will be written there.
The family includes Alex, his alcoholic brother, Daniel, Daniel's snobbish wife, Charity; his drug-addicted sister, Emilie; Emilie's whiny husband, Fitch, their father, Tony, and mother, Becky; and the somber Aunt Helene (Nicky Guadagni). It is explained that their ancestor, Victor Le Domas, made a deal with a man named Le Bail. Le Bail would build the Le Domas fortune in exchange for the Le Domases observing this tradition. Grace draws a card labeled "Hide and Seek." Unaware of the truth, she hides while the Le Domases arm themselves with antique weapons to hunt her down.
When Grace witnesses Emilie accidentally killing one of the maids believing it to be her, Alex confesses that the "hide and seek" card is the only game that requires the family to kill the recipient. They believe that if Grace survives until dawn, the entire family will die, as per the agreement with Le Bail. He kept the truth from Grace, knowing she would leave him if she knew. The last time someone pulled that card was thirty years ago when Helene's husband was killed. Shocked, scared, and angry, Grace becomes determined to survive. She is discovered by Daniel, who is disillusioned with the bloody family tradition and gives her a head start. To prevent his family from tracking Grace, Alex destroys the security monitors before being restrained by Daniel and Tony.
