Storyline

How low would you go to win a million dollars? Just how desperate are you for the cash? Desperate enough to enter the Red Room? In this latest and most vicious game show to emerge from the Japanese underground, four contestants (a husband and wife on the edge of divorce, and two sisters) are locked in the Red Room to draw cards in the "king game." Whoever draws the king selects two others to enter a cage where one performs the most outrageous acts upon his or her unlucky victim. The game is played to the death. Survivor takes all, and the losers go home in body bags! Written by Anonymous

The King Game....?
10 December 2007 | by (Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane) – See all my reviews

They had Kings in Japan? Shouldn't it be called The Emperor Game? Whatever.

The King Game. Four people enter a room. Each gets a card. One card has a Crown displayed on it. The other three cards are numbered 1 - 3. Whoever gets the Crown card is obviously the King of this round. The King then chooses up to 2 numbers to play his/her game. The King doesn't know which number belongs to which person, which makes the game even more interesting. The goal then is to make the participants quit the game. You can quit at anytime, but you will leave empty handed and you certainly won't get the grand prize of 10 Million Yen. You accomplish the "challenge", you get to play another round. So whoever is the last person standing, The King, will win the money. And most importantly with this game, anything goes.

Red Room is my second movie with this director. The first was Muzan-E, which is considered by many to be one of the most disturbing flicks out there. And I'd agree. This film isn't really on par with Muzan on the disturbing level, but on a sick entertainment level, it's much better. It starts off almost timidly with the "contestants" not really sure how extreme they should go, but eventually the movie hits a great stride and the vomit, urine and blood begin to flow. I also have to add it has a great opening scene, which is very reminiscent to KIDS' opening scene. My only "major" gripe with the film was that a couple scenes of "challenge" would kind of drag a little bit. The chair scene in particular. Though at least that scene ended with a nice laugh.

Red Room is easily one of the most entertaining flicks of this nature I've seen in a while. I really dug the whole game idea. The movie made me laugh a good amount, it had nudity, sleaze, blood, and perverse situations. I can't see this movie disappointing too many fans of this type of film. Sure didn't disappoint me. I'm pretty pscyhed that there's a Red Room 2. 8.5 outta 10
