Game of Death

Kill or be killed is the golden rule of the Game of Death. Sucks for seven millennials who ignored that rule. Now each one's head will explode unless they kill someone. Will they turn on each other to survive, or will this sunny day be the last for the innocent people of their middle-of-nowhere town?

    Que ce film soit une collab USA/France/Canada est parfait. Comédie sanglante filmée avec audace et au générique en animation de OUF. Un must see.

    Musique habilement choisie.

    Ёбаный ж ты в рот, это просто мэш-ап "Джуманджи" и "Королевской битвы". Совсем не мое кино, но получил истинное удовольствие от такого кровавого трэша происходящего на экране. Это даже не бэшка, это прям трэш-цэшка в духе Тромы.

    Ever since Joel McCrea and Fay Wray were pursued through the jungle (well, the RKO backlot) by Leslie Banks' evil Count Zaroff in 1932's The Most Dangerous Game, cinema has offered multiple stories of hapless protagonists forced to go on the run as some sinister force, human or otherwise, hunts them for sport. Sebastien Landry and Laurence Morais-Lagace's Canadian indie Game of Death takes this concept and gives it a novel twist, with its protagonists forced to become the hunters themselves in order to survive.

    During a party, a bunch of obnoxious 'teens' (most are of course played by actors well into their twenties) stumble across a mysterious electronic board game. Deciding to play, each member of the group follows the game's instruction to place a finger on their board, and to their surprise they each have their fingers pricked, their blood being sucked into the device. Then a number - 24 - appears on the game's LCD screen, and a ticking clock noise begins to emanate from its 8-bit speaker.

    Ignoring the game, the friends go back to drinking and acting like asshats, until one of the group begins to convulse, his face breaking out in massive boils until his head literally explodes, Scanners style. One of the group notes that the number on the game has changed to 23, and when a second teen loses their head, it reduces to 22. The game informs its unwitting players that 24, now 22, people must be killed, or each player will succumb to severe head trauma. It's kill or be killed, and the group sets off in search of victims, while debating the ethics of their actions and whether they can actually go through with taking human lives.

    Jumanji gore que pierde fuelle cuando mas trascendente se pone, los fans del genero hemos visto de mas gores.

  • ★★★★ review by William Mahaffey on Letterboxd

    Wastes no time launching into the Scanners style exploding heads and the gore and tension just ratchet up from there. Great premise and will be a blast with an audience.
