Possible Influence on Television's "Survivor"
11 September 2006 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

Millionaire Barry Sullivan invites the usual assortment of friends, relatives, and hangers-on to a dinner party where he proposes a cruel parlor game. Each guest must justify his existence to the others or be voted out of the room. Souls are bared, resentments are dredged up, and feelings are hurt until only two people are left.

The excellent cast does what it can, but the film is confined mostly to the dining room set and is all talk with no action. The bizarre final image may just be symbolic, or perhaps there was something supernatural in all this. Either way, I have not seen this movie on television in ages, and it doesn't appear to be available on VHS/DVD. I'm actually waiting for it to show up on a Mill Creek 50-Movie Pack.
