Asian horror films in many ways are much better than American horror films because they tend to push the limits of terror, and they introduce unique concepts to the genre that expands traditional elements, which make horror still relevant and fun. Directed by Chukiat Sakveerakul, 13: Game of Death tells the story of Chit who is heavily in debt and is fired from his job. He is contacted y an unknown caller who offers him the chance to gain some money by participating in a game where the contestant must complete 13 different challenges. Each challenge is worse than the previous one. The concept with this film is great; however I thought that the execution was kind of poor. The film tends to be hit and miss, and despite its original plot, I felt that the film had the potential of being so much more. I felt there was something missing to really make this film memorable, and despite its twist ending, it left a lot to be desired. The film is good and it's entertaining, and lots going for it, but like I said, things could have been done slightly better too. With a concept like this, you could see so many great ideas that could have been, but wasn't even brought to the screen. There could have been a bit more effort into the film, and I think it's a shame because the idea is really interesting, but the execution is average. Good film that has its fair share of flaws, 13: Game of Death is a must for horror fans, but expect to be slightly disappointed with a few aspects of this film. Even with its entire fault, there's a good film here to enjoy, but one that is not memorable or demands additional viewings.
A down-in-the-dumps Bangkok salesman gets a much needed financial lift courtesy of a twisted and mysterious game show which requires participants to complete a series of 13 challenges, each one completed awards cash, but the challenges are from easy or legal! Real good fun with doses of violence, stomach-turning moments and the odd laugh. Always entertaing and fast-paced enjoyment. Definitely one of the better films I've seen from Thailand.
Whilst this film isn?t totally original in it?s internet/reality killing style game, it is one of the better ones of it?s theme and certainly offers some cringeworthy scenes, depending on what you least prefer to watch from the 13 games.
The escalation of games and questioning of morals makes for exciting watching .
The ending was enjoyable and offered some way of explanation, but then turned very quickly into a somewhat anti-climatic finish.
