Amy, played by porn star Sasha Grey, is an aggressive player who immediately plays to win. Shepard has an obnoxious son (Robin Taylor) who insults the players.
There is a fairly decent intensity factor with this film, but it really doesn't stimulate the grey matter. The whole set up is rather inane. If you like the "ten little Indians" style movies with slasher elements, this one is satisfactory as long as you keep your expectations low. Perhaps 5 stars on a Red Box rental scale.
If you liked this film you might also like "Truth or Die" which I thought was superior.
Parental Guide: F-bomb, no sex or nudity. Attempted rape. Not an abundance of violence to women considering the plot.
The basic bones of the film isn't highly original being a bit of a "Saw" rip off with a nod to "Hostel" here and there too, though the film has some violence it's nowhere near as graphics as those. The story is based around "Iris" (Brittany Snow) who is desperate to save her sick brother Raleigh (Logan Miller) but can't afford the cost of finding a suitable bone marrow donor.
Dr. Barden (Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.) who is treating Raleigh kindly introduces her to Shepard Lambrick (Jeffrey Combs) a sadistic minded millionaire who offers her the chance to "win" in the game he is hosting at his luxury house (Dr. Barden being a prior winner of the contest hence the introduction)
Of course Iris accepts and is picked up to have dinner at Lambrick''s House, here she meets other contestants and Lambrick's son who seems to enjoy the proceedings as much as his father does. Lamrick's party trick is to get people to do things they don't really want to, or disagree with by offering them money, firstly he gets a former alcoholic to have a drink, then Iris a vegetarian decides $10,000 is enough to eat a bit of meat the guests are served with.
Once the meal is over we find the guests are now part of a more sinister game but they have to make a choice from two options in each round. The game is designed to eliminate each player so that only one person is left, this is done with some rather cruel and painful ways and you get your usual couple of guests who try to escape and don't want to play.
So is it any good?Read more ›
Iris is taking care of her brother who needs a bone marrow transplant. With no suitable donor and mounting medical bills she is struggling to make ends meet. When she is invited to a private dinner party where guests are invited to take part in a winner takes all game and she could go home very rich she decides she has nothing to lose and agrees. What she doesn't realise is that the stakes are high and that the players are playing for their lives.....
It's a shame this film only seems to be available on region 1 as I found it really good and I would love to purchase a copy on dvd.
The quality of the acting, which some reviewers have questioned, is actually quite reasonable, and there's nothing inherently wrong with the cinematography, dialogue, pace or action. The script is what lets this film down. It's derivative, tiresome, predictable and not particularly interesting. It's also unnecessarily unpleasant, with little or no redemption for characters who try to do good and are not rewarding.
Ultimately this is a deeply depressing film, with a plot twist at the end which devalues the whole affair and leaves the viewer cold. A wasted opportunity for a decent horror, and not worth the viewer's time.
To the positive side, the concept is a delightful one and one that leaves your skin crawling. It gets at the real heart of humanity and digs down to human's true nature. The action is non-stop and the role of Bevans played by 'Jonny Coyne' was wonderfully heartless. This isn't a movie to write home about but it sure makes your dinner settle faster.
The negatives of this movie are really just that you can see all the action coming. It is unrelentingly dark and that's wonderful but after a while you start to anticipate everywhere the movie's going to go as it just heaps dark upon dark upon dark upon grim. As one who hates a happy ending, this one left me nodding in appreciation.
To summarize, this one is a solid choice for some light viewing. Doesn't take too much attention but delivers a pleasant level of entertainment without TOO much gore.
