Movie Info

Based on an interesting plot from a novel by Robert Sheckley, this movie features tongue-in-cheek performances by Andress and Mastroianni, which are responsible for its status as a minor cult favorite. Set in the 21st century, this science fiction movie depicts a society in which population control is facilitated by the use of legalized murder. The society plays an assassination game for fun, in which the last person left alive is the winner. The movie is made for entertainment, but there are some sexual situations.more

Petri directs with tongue firmly in cheek, lampooning the media obsession with high risk contests and games of chance with cool sixties style ...

The problem for modern audiences is that the film is so fundamentally mired in the swinging silliness of mid-'60s Euro culture that the message gets lost amid all the gaudy colors, insipid pop music, and generally deranged production design

A droll, Sterlingian arabesque

From the outrageous fashions to the less than hidden anti-media agenda, this revamped version of The Most Dangerous Game is like a retro Running Man meshed with a Cinzano ad.

Not sure what category to put this one in I got it from a list of 1965 Italian Movies, but it is also on the fringe of Euro spy Movies. Some put it in the science Fiction Category because its supposed to be in the future, being back in 65, would make now the future. Anyway its about people who join a hunt club, you have 10 hunts and you hunt humans one time your the hunter next your the victim. Ursula Andress is the Hunter, and for a 1965 movie she is wearing some beautiful dresses. If you like Italian made films and slap stick you will enjoy this one 4 stars.

I really loved this movie. Not only because it stars Marcello Marstoianni, but because it's a futuristic thriller with a bit of comedy. I highly recommend it.
