Totally worthless...
20 January 2008 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

Much more frightening than the actual movies themselves is the fact that one continues to discover slasher movies that were released in the 1980's! This decade truly is an inexhaustible source for low-budgeted and inane horror pictures that often ended up in oblivion shortly after coming out. "Deadly Games" is such a prototype example of the – righteously – forgotten 80's slasher! The plot and characters are derivative, the killings are unimaginative and the attempts to insert humor are downright pitiable. Tension apparently was an unavailable option as well. The plot drags slowly and spends way too much time focusing on bimbos and losers cheating on each other. Past halfway in the film I still hadn't figured out which characters are sleeping together whilst they aren't supposed to, and who the hell cares about that anyway? The strange murder of a voluptuous town girl (sadly, the hottest chick dies first) reunites a group of old friends and makes them speculate together about what could have happened. One of them is a copper – though not a very convincing one – investigating the case, one girl is the wannabe cynical sister of the first victim and all the rest are dispensable dorks. There are plenty of bone-headed who are waiting, no … BEGGING to get slaughtered but nothing happens. At a certain point, the ultimate low point of the film, you're actually watching at how three of the characters (one of them being the copper) sit in a theater and see a film … for several long minutes! What's the freaking point?!? And why can't that chick stop talking to herself or at least realize her jokes and one-liners are totally not funny? If the theater scene wasn't painfully dire enough yet, they carry on playing a board game and football whilst the most abysmal 80's song can be heard. How is this relevant? And you, you stupid cop, shouldn't you be looking for the killer? In case you haven't noticed yet, "Deadly Games" is one of the worst and most redundant slashers of the entire 80's, and that's saying something, since we mentioned the inexhaustible offer before. It doesn't even deserve to be called a slasher, as the slashing is next to none! This is a pile of steaming rubbish about a bunch of losers struggling with midlife crises whilst still in their early thirties. Avoid like the plague.
