Storyline

GAME... "Hunting Season is Now Open".

GAME is an eight-minute horror entertainment from Nova Scotia, Canada. A terrified woman flees through the woods, trying to evade three monstrous pursuers... but maybe the game is about to change. Inspired by 1950s EC Comics and 1970s Canadian Hinterland public service announcements.

GAME is a dark, tongue-in-cheek directorial debut from Josh MacDonald, writer of THE CORRIDOR, edited by Jason Eisener (HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN) and produced by Angus Swantee (TORTUROUS).

GAME premiered at Fantastic Fest 2012 (Alamo Drafthouse-- Austin, TX) and has since played in 60+ film festivals worldwide. GAME is the winner of multiple prizes for Best Short, as well as prizes for Best Actress, Best Creature & Best VFX.

Nominated for Best Short at SITGES, Spain; sold to FEARnet; cover story for Go Social Film Magazine; and selected by "Short of the Week" and "Vimeo Staff Picks" during Halloween 2013.

GAME is a must-see!
24 July 2013 | by elkane85See all my reviews

I only gave this a nine instead of a ten only because I want to see it become a feature film. Otherwise it was flawless. I saw this last year at the Freak Show Film Festival in Florida and my husband and I had no idea what to expect because we'd only heard the name, we had no clue what the plot was. This film impressed me to no end! Not only did it pack a great punch story wise, but the special effects were that of a big budget studio film. They must have had some ridiculously talented people working their special effects.

The story, although short, leaves me giddy in anticipation for what this film crew will come out with next. I can only pray that they turn this into a feature film or decide to feature it in an anthology with other amazing horror shorts.
