Game of Death

Kill or be killed. Death is the only way out. Once begun, there is no turning back. Thus ominously states the Game of Death, which seven sex-and-drug hazed millennials very foolishly decide to play. When they touch the Game to enter as players, it pricks their fingers and takes some blood from each. Rarely a good sign. The Game is on and it says they must take 24 lives in a given time or die themselves. Within minutes, two of the unlucky gamesters’ heads have exploded. Clearly, this is no joke. The five survivors need to kill 22 people soon or share their friends’ gruesome fate. GAME OF DEATH is an insane, hyperkinetic bloodbath that doesn’t relent for a single minute. What, this outrageous shocker gleefully asks, would you do in this nightmare scenario? Add to this a you-can’t-possibly-go-there plot turn and GAME OF DEATH begs entry into the sick and twisted hall of fame. Absolutely not for those with faint hearts, delicate stomachs, or easily exploding heads. —C.R.
