Director: David Guy Levy
Main Stars: Brittany Snow, June Squibb, Jeffery Combs, Sasha Grey, Robb Wells, Enver Gjokaj
Storyline: A young woman is desperate for money to help her younger brother. She signs up for a game hosted by a sadistic rich man.
Review (Spoils): Young Iris (Brittany Snow) is hungry for money as she needs to look after her younger brother. She does a interview and passes and takes up the interest of getting dressed up and heading to a rich man’s estate to play “Would You Rather” for money. While is there and other guests join she starts to mingle with a few people and we learn that there is a room full of different individuals that all would like to be rich. As they al, sit at the table they are introduced to the sadistic Shepard Lambrick (Jeffery Combs) who starts the game. Who has the guts to last till the end?
First off, I love Jeffery Combs, so this was going to be good in my head from the get go. Brittany Snow is good looking, and I was interested in her character and than add Robb Wells from Trailer Park Boys and the classic legend herself Sasha Grey! How the hell is this going to be bad? Yes, the film does have a bit of Saw feel to it, but this was a gem that I could not stop watching.
The film was not long which worked very well and got right to the point. Combs rocked as the sadistic asshole that you just wanted to hate. Shepard Lambrick is someone I would love to see again in a sequel. We have tons of awkward gore and blood. People hurting each other for the greed of cash, such as drowning, electrocution, whipping, eye slicing, stabbing with ice picks and even a small bomb taped to hand. This film has it all !!!
Rating: This film is damn good, and I recommend everyone to check it out if you haven’t as it is little horror gem that I was not aware of. Just wish they didn’t type cast Sasha Grey and her death a little more graphic but anyways …. Check out this Film! The ending is worth it!
