Fatal Games is a little slasher from the 80's which is best left forgotten. The movie starts off OK, has some nice deaths but halfway the slasher plot stops and we get a bunch of teen angst, about boyfriends moving to another town and parents pressure and how hard it is to combine sports with good grades at school, ugh... The plot is centered around a gymnastics school, where all of a sudden all the best athletes, on the way to the national championships start to get killed one by one by a dark figure using a javelin! The story is badly developed, the characters suck, well you know the kind of "bad" we're talking here, its an 80's slasher for God's sake! That's not the problem! The problem is that the movie takes itself too seriously about these teenager's problems and forgets about what matters: sex and gore! There's no sex! There's nudity, natural boobs in the showers from a few girls, but nothing that really stands out! The gore on the deaths is minimal! A few drops of blood at best! The javelin is actually kind of cool as a slasher's weapon, but the lack of gore kills it! So all you get is dialog and more dialog! The acting is atrocious even for the time and genre. The slasher's motive is as lame as can get, again, even for the genre! And so weak, c'mon! I mean, this slasher wouldn't last five minute's with Cassie Hack (comics reference BTW, Google it, its awesome). There really isn't any reason to watch this, even for hardcore fans of 80's cheese! Its not hilariously bad, its just bad without being campy! The girls aren't even that hot!
