  • Game Of Death's playful tone does land some absurdist laughs, but attempts to reconcile the film's ironic distance from its pervasive bloodshed and the serious moral conflict produced by the game's rules land with a splat.

  • Game of Death has no parts that I feel didn't work. The entire movie titillated me.

  • Game of Death is quiet, edgy, dark and violent. It's got a faux-retro vibe in only the way that 2000's babies will appreciate. It's the Spring Breakers of Horror.

  • Fountains of blood and questionable millennials populate Laurence Morais and Sebastien Landry's campy Game of Death, a slick and uproarious horror comedy where its kill or be killed in a heady celebration of schlocky violence and over-the-top gore.

  • This could have been an intriguing short film, but instead it's a drawn out slog that becomes more and more obnoxious as it goes on.

  • There is a lot to like about Game of Death - the gore, the premise, the opening scenes - but Landry and Morais-Lagace's project is undermined by poor pacing, bland narrative arcs and a lack of conflict.
