Storyline

November 17, 1988, is a day of mourning for some... and for others, a lucrative opportunity. On that date, eight university students were found murdered in the old arts building at the college. An anonymous source told police the 20-somethings were in the midst of a local role-playing game, called Chill. The name of the game is to stay alive. But for the players that November evening, few would be getting up for another round. But when a scheming student decides to profit from the tragedy and revive the whodunit game as a web series, the new players soon discover, for some, this game is still all too real...

An excellent homage to classic slashers.
4 March 2015 | by (Barberton, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I have been watching horror movies for a long time. I started with classic horror in the 70's, and then relished the golden age of the slasher in the 1980's. I've seen so many horror movies, actually, that the vast majority of the modern ones bore me... endless torture porn, poor reboots of classics, and insipid writing have left me as cold towards modern horror as a corpse.

Chill: The Killing Games, however, is different. An homage to the classic horror slashers of the 80's, Chill gets all of the elements right... great characters, a killer (no pun intended) premise, and genuine suspense combine to create a horror film actually WORTH SEEING.

The plot is pretty straightforward (which is a plus, because plots that bend over backwards to be "edgy" or "twisted" often come across as lame): Chill is a popular role-playing game played in a small Ohio town. Everyone draws roles at the beginning of the game, and one person is chosen to be the "killer". The rest are their potential "victims". The killer then uses toy weapons to "get" the others, and anyone who survives the night is the winner. One night in the 1980's, however, people actually died playing the game, and so it went unplayed for years. All of this changes when a group of students decide to revive the game... with deadly results.

One thing this film succeeds at is making the viewer genuinely like the characters. Far too often, characters in these films are introduced just to increase the body count. However, the suspense factor is heightened when one genuinely likes the characters (one of the reasons that Friday the 13th Part IV is so well regarded is this very same thing). Special kudos go out to Roger Conners and Angelia DeLuca for creating likable, memorable characters. And Kelly Roger's goth chick is hilarious.

Now, this film IS micro-budget, and it shows in spots... the audio is a bit uneven, and the soundtrack is a bit odd in spots. But DP/Co- Director Noelle Bye's cinematography is first-rate. Besides, I'd far rather watch a good film with a few technical flaws over a slick production that sucks overall. This Heathen Hippy says to check it out.
