Audience Reviews for Deathrow Gameshow
This movie is darkly hilarious, over the top, and low on the budget, I really enjoyed it. Sure the idea of a gameshow for inmates is taken from The Running Man, but this movie is a lot funnier, and has a better feel for it's television spoofness. It's also straightforward and a bit cheesy, but it works. If you like dark comedy, you should see this.
Okay, so while I admit to having a few laughs with this one, it's still a fucking terrible film and should be rated as such, regardless of what enjoyment one gleans from it via sarcasm and the like.
Definite rental, as you would likely NOT want to own this one.
Deathrow Gameshow is a darkly humorous and gleefully over the top film in every way. What I really love about this film outside of the fact that is a very funny film, but it is also a film that never takes itself seriously and loves to do all sorts of weird, fucked up things just because it can. I would definitely have to say that this is one of the most unique and underrated comedies I've ever seen. If you enjoy watching films that are totally bizarre and satirical, Deathrow Gameshow is definitely worth checking out.
