Storyline

In the future, two television networks compete for ratings by producing violent game shows. One network produces a modern day version of the Roman gladiators, only on motorcycles instead of chariots, and uses convicted murderers as the participants, The network decides it needs a champion for this sport, so they frame a constant winner from another game for murder, and place him on the show.

Trivia

The year 2072 isn't gratuitous (but is always misspelled in different countries releases), the Roman Coliseum was built in the year 72 A.D. therefore the main event is part of the bi-millennial celebrations. See more »

User Reviews

Fulci at his worst
20 April 1999 | by abattoirSee all my reviews

This film, a precursor to The Running Man, depicts a futuristic game show in which contestants are stalked and killed. Bad special effects and dubbing throughout. Only for Lucio Fulci completists, this is even lacking in the gratuitous gore and nudity that usually characterizes Fulci's work.
