Movie Reviews

Surprisingly good
the dude | 12/25/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It doesn't have the slickness of a Hollywood movie. But, for a little low-budget film, it works. Fun, gory, entertaining, just what it should be. A fine effort."
A warm cup of slash

"What is with the harsh reviews for this film? I do not get it. This movie is one of my personal faves. Why you ask? Well it is so comforting I know its a slasher but on a rainy day this movie is perfect. It takes no brains and the movie is never boring. The acting is a mixed bag but the main characters do a very good job. The best thing about this film is how good of a job they do of hiding the killer. Bravo filmakers. Overall a fun ride."
2.5-3 stars

"This movie was a bit low budget, but it doesn't do too bad overall. The actors, for the most part, stink. The twist is pretty neat and there are some really cool and different style kills. There's certainly an element of gore and the movie kept my attention for the most part. I guess if you could find this DVD for 5.00 or under it'd be a justified slasher movie to own."
Uhhh, timeout! Maybe Xbox wasn't so bad

"Gotta love independent horror! The Murder Game is a pretty bloody brilliant low budget slasher flick that is twice as entertaining as most recent Hollywood offerings.

Kids will do the darndest things. A group of high school friends have invented a fun new way to pass the time--Murder! Pretend killings, of course. It's like hide and seek, but instead of tagging your victims you viciously bludgeon them with a toy hammer, plastic knife, etc... Nothing seems to bond boys and girls like a little simulated violence.

Late one night they all sneak into a storage warehouse to play. Well, it's all fun and games until several of them start spewing blood and getting decapitated. Dang, playtime is over!

This has some fairly gruesome kills to accompany the horrid acting. Some of the students do look like they're pushing thirty, but oh well. There are some hot chicks with a little bit of sex transpiring but no nudity (sigh). Plot twists ensue as this doesn't totally overcome the stereotypes of the genre. Still a good time.

Reccomended for slasher and low budget horror fans. 3.5 stars."
