Plot

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? (Filmaffinity)

Movie Reviews

Game Of Death’s playful tone does land some absurdist laughs, but attempts to reconcile the film’s ironic distance from its pervasive bloodshed (…) land with a splat.” Katie Rife: AV Club

“A prime example of a horror film where gory doesn’t always mean good. This is a shame, as the film has an amusing plot that is unfortunately squandered by an underdeveloped script” Trace Thurman: Bloody Disgusting 

Game of Death” is more nasty fun than most viewers will want to admit (…) A stylish, self-aware exercise” Dennis Harvey: Variety
