Rima Te Wiata,
A group of auditioned stage actors rehearse for an upcoming musical production. While locking themselves in the theater for rehearsal, not knowing that an escaped psychopath sneaked into the theater with them.
Elliot Brindle is a bright, meek salesman, drowning in debt - and desperate as he's about to marry the love of his life. Upon receiving a phone call informing him that he's on a hidden camera game show where he must execute 13 tasks to receive a sum total cash prize of $6.2M, Elliot dismissively follows through with his first two instructions: swat the fly that is currently bothering him, then eat the fly. With thousands of dollars suddenly appearing in his bank account, Elliot remains skeptical, though comforted by the knowledge that he can stop playing at anytime if only to lose every penny that he's won. Trapped into the horrors manipulated by unseen spectators, Elliot's need to complete the game escalates as the tasks grow more extreme, to a devastating point of no return. Written by
Perlman did not see the original film, as he did not want it to influence his performance. See more »
Having graduating levels of prize money is pointless because he can never opt out of the game at any level and claim a lesser prize - either he wins or loses. If he fails any level or opts out at any time he "loses any prize money won up to that point", so having increasing tiers of prize money is irrelevant. See more »
was pleasantly surprised by this film, it's not great, and nothing about it is great, but pretty much all of it is pretty good, the story, the acting, the twists.
you'll be talking with whoever you watch this with or know has seen it what stage you would stop playing the game. Which is tricky because if you go so far it's difficult to turn back, which is the whole point.
was a little disappointed with the end, can't help but think 'YOU IDIOT!!!'
Well worth a watch if your into similar films, not much to hate about this in my opinion.
