“you’re a Goth girl in a wetsuit.” [Jason]
Verified purchase
This 2009 supernatural horror sees 7 sceptical ‘acquaintances’ playing a mediaeval ‘prophesy’ styled board game that one of them has acquired from a mysterious stranger. In the game, players are ‘eliminated’ after drawing cards that predict their fate, but the winner ‘gets their hearts desire.’ They soon learn there’s more to it when the first fatality occurs before they even finish the game, but what will happen next?
This maintains a good pace throughout and contains some genuine gore moments but the intense violence of the opening is never recaptured. Despite some bizarre deaths as each player comes to their various ends it all settles down into a ‘standard’ format along the lines of ‘Jumanji’ meets ‘Final destination’ as the survivors realise their situation but the cards have told us what to expect and the surprise has gone [lose a *]. The dialogue is unconvincing in places, although the acting is good for what seems a ‘budget’ movie [although apparently this cost $6½ million], confusingly, the opening scenes are not explained until half way through, while the special effects vary from adequate to very good.
.The single disc plays 2 trailers before going to main menu offering play, scene selection, trailer and set-up [2.0 default, 5.1 English Hoh on/off]. Opening with graphic and barbaric scenes of torture before the titles go up, it’s obvious why it’s rated 18, but other than a nipple shot, there is no nudity and the sex is implied rather than seen, but it does use the F & P words. With some clever editing, this could have easily been a ***** 15, but the chance was lost reducing this to a grudging ****, just don’t expect it to really go anywhere.

Boring
Verified purchase
Like Jumanji only more gore and for older audiences. However having said that 40 minutes in, 3 dead so far and I am bored. I like Eliza Dushku but the characters in this film are all one dimensional and there's no chemistry between any of them. I had to stop at 40 minutes because I just couldn't continue it's so boring I went and took a nap.

Predictable, lazy writing, and unlikeable characters
Verified purchase
Jumanji meets Final Destination. A bunch of immature sexist chauvinistic d-bags and Eliza play a board game that predicts their fates. Slow moving predictable plot, including an obvious ending. Enjoyable only for seeing how they die, but even that was shot low budget and therefore not very inventively and very drawn out. Not unwatchable, but maybe spend your time better elsewhere.

SO !
Verified purchase
The Evil forces of the Spanish Inquisition along with numerous tools of torture created a demonic board game!! Really, like Jumani but with a 18 rating. Weak and only suitable for party watching, with beer and snacks.

Don't
Verified purchase
It's bad, like really bad. Like seeing your grandparents banging bad. Effects, acting, music, story, they're just all awful and not even in the fun Troma way. Don't do it to yourself.
