2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mark G. on 4 April 2012
Format: DVD
4 people have decided to play the dangerous 'King Game' in order to win a cash prize of 10 million yen.
The rules of the game are simple. 4 cards are dealt, three of the cards are numbered from 1 - 3 and the fourth card bears a picture of a crown.
Whoever is dealt the crown card is 'king' and it is their job to issue a task for the other players in the hopes that they would rather quit than perform what has been asked of them.

The first few tasks are fairly straight forward and the players soon realise they are going to have to up their game if they want to make the others quit and claim the cash for themselves.
Through the course of the film you will get to see some nice displays of people being vomited on, urinated on, molested, using a hairdryer in a novel way and...well that guy's clearly not a qualified electrician as that's definately not where a lightbulb goes.

Although it isn't filled with out and out gore which is what I was expecting it does have some great cringeworthy moments and is a good little torture flick that works by the element of chance in the game whereby no one knows who is going to be 'king' or victim until the cards have been dealt.

The film is shot very cheaply with very basic looking sets but none of that really matters as this is all about the torture and even though (as I stated earlier) this isn't a gore fest it still works well as a torture film with some unique moments that are sure to make more than a few viewers wince.

Red Room seems be a new Japanese game show where four contestants draw cards for the privilege of daring each other to whatever disgusting and painful forfeits they can think up. Contestants are eliminated if they quit, and the final survivor gets to collect a prize of ten million yen (presumably still a significant sum of money).

The film is clearly made with a budget of zero, as all the action takes place in one room and features a total of five unknown actors. The clever premise and script allow this to be overlooked, and an element of absurd black humour lifts this out of the rut of the torture porn genre. Actually the gore is very mild and the horror is mainly psychological.

It's like Truth or Dare, but the dares become more daring 22 Dec. 2008
By John's Horror Corner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
First off, a warning: the film quality of this movie is destitute, barely meeting the quality of a poorly-budgeted soap opera. Furthermore, the acting, music and sets were subpar even compared to the film quality. That said, when I noticed these flaws during the first few minutes I wanted to return it--then, I decided to wrench through it only to be pleasantly surprised.

Sometimes a movie wins my favor even when it's trash. Red Room was trash. But fun trash to watch with friends and a few drinks. Watching this in solitary sobriety would be a grave, aggravating and likely boring mistake. This in mind, my rating is one of personal entertainment value and not a rational assessment as it would apply to all viewers.

I found myself appreciating some of the torture-pornesque "dares" (although I would have taken the dares much further had I been the writer) of the over-simplistic King Game. In this game all four players draw one of the four cards each. He who holds the King gets to declare what the others must do in order to remain in the game. Naturally, as the game progresses and people who were victems of previous turns become Kings, the dares evolve from sophomoric to mean to cruel to perversely malevolent. But the players, who were given poorly written backgrounds to convince the viewer of their desperation to win, endure since they all covet the prize money.

The violence and gore of which the viewer would be admonished on the DVD cover are more implied than graphic. There is nothing of shocking nature to anyone who has seen either Saw 1-5, Cube 1-3 or Hostel 1-2 (all of which were WAY more shocking than anything in Red Room). My entertainment came with the quiet anticipation of the next vengefully cruel challenge by the King. The scenes including sexual content seemed to be jestingly choreographed with ridiculous sound effects. Such scenes were presented as if a pair of virgins who just discovered the means of kissing and intercourse moments ago were charged with direction and starring in those scenes. Again, watching this alone would result in a growing desire to kill anything making a sudden movement. However, among jovial friends, I found myself having fun mocking the quality of a trash movie.

This movie is for those who enjoy bad, bad, bad horror and thrillers. If you are not one of these people, don't even rent Red Room.

Gorehounds beware!!! 19 May 2007
By Michael Daggett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I would have liked to give Red Room no stars at all, but unfortunately you have to give it at least 1. That's 1 more star than it deserves. I bought this DVD thinking that it would be something similar to the infamous Guinea Pig series. Boy was I wrong! Yes, they are B-movies, but while Guinea Pig delivers exatly what it promises, this movie gives you nothing that it promises.

On the front cover, it warns the viewer that this movie contains graphic violence. That could not be further from the truth. What I got most out of this movie, was almost soft-core, excruciatingly fake sounding, sex-scenes, and IMPLIED scenes of disturbing violence. That's right. Implied NOT graphic.

Now, I am a big fan of japanese movies and Unearthed Films has released other good, very gory movies, like Guinea Pig and Aftermath. However, Red Room was not worth the $14.99 I paid for it, or the 68 minutes I spent watching it. Red Room is not worth a single cent of your money, or a second of your time.

The sad thing is, Unearthed Films probably realized this, which led to their false-advertising DVD cover. For shame, Unearthed Films, for shame. You disappoint me.

If you're looking for a movie with almost soft-core, fake-sounding porn scenes, than Red Room is for you. However, if you're looking for some graphic, gory, ultra-violence, than I suggest you watch Guinea Pig: The Devil's Experiment. It took away the bad taste in my mouth that Red Room left.
Great Idea. Poor Execution. 28 Sept. 2014
By Hector - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The idea behind this movie is great. How far would you go to win X amount of money? What would you be willing to endure for...? Fantastic idea. However, this is really low budget and much of the gross out or shock scenes are just over the top. It's too much, too gross and not in a good way. Great idea. Poor execution.

OMG!!! 2 Mar. 2008
By Roberta Wright - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
THIS MOVIE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!!! This Japanese movie is very good, but it made my stomach sick after watching it.

Red Room is about four people locked in a room playing a card game. The one who gets the KING card gets two people, and they have to do what the person tells them to do.

This movie is not for kids. Of course, everybody knows that right?
