Descends into repetitive tedium

DEATH GAME is a low rent exploitation flick from the 1970s, fairly strong in places but certainly nowhere near as depraved as something like FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE. Eli Roth must be a fan, given that he remade this film with Keanu Reeves under the title KNOCK KNOCK. The story is a three-hander about an average middle-aged guy who is visited by a couple of teenage girls one night. They frolic in the bathtub, but the visit sours the following day when they tie him up and proceed to abuse him for the rest of the film.

This attempts to be a psychological thriller but I found it grating in the extreme. After the set up, literally half of the running time is merely made up of screaming, shouting, and general craziness. Mrs Clint Eastwood, Sondra Locke, is scarily convincing at times, although not as much as in SUDDEN IMPACT, and Colleen Camp isn't too bad either. But the script is pedestrian and the dated, low budget look of the film works against it, so that you'll be twiddling your thumbs long before the amusing twist ending.

Self Indulgent Mess

There is a lot of talk of torture these days. That's all this movie is. It's about a good person who makes a bad decision. Because of his kindness, he becomes vulnerable to two psychotic women. From then on its a just-for-kicks assault on him. I don't know at what point you do something about it. There is a wife and child out there somewhere; he has great feelings of guilt and fear. But there should have been some times when he could have acted. The movie seems to be somebody's joke. I suppose in the wake of the Manson murders, we had a bit of a fixation on the likes of these two. Nevertheless, why would someone make a film like this? What appeals does it have except for sadism. The conclusion is totally unsatisfying, but that could have been remedied with an obvious plot twist. Oh, well. Another hour and a half of my life.

"We're jailbait".

It's the end of a hot day. I'm tired, ran my six miles in ninety degree heat, threw down a couple of cold ones and figure I'll knock off another flick from my Mill Creek Mystery Collection. At an hour and a half I figure I can get through this without falling asleep and still have the stamina to do a review here. Usually I'll read a few other posts, positive and negative, and then offer my own thoughts. By the way, 'johnmorghen' and 'asgbeat' are the ones to read on this board, I'm only offering my paltry two cents.

That song - please pry me off the ceiling. Every time it came on I wanted to groan and correct the lyrics - it should be 'DEAR old Dad', not 'good old Dad'. A bit of a misnomer though, George (Seymour Cassell) didn't seem all that dear or good to me. But gosh, how was he going to explain all this to the wife and kids when they got home? Especially the delivery guy in the fish tank. George probably should have taken his lumps calling the cops, no fifteen or sixteen year old would have had the street smarts to pull this one off. But it wasn't their first time if you can believe the script. Jackson (Sondra Locke) says to Donna (Colleen Camp) after George's first getaway - "They always take the bait don't they?"

All the while I'm waiting for George to do the manly thing and take out the pair of bimbos, but it was just too maddening. Which is why I take exception to some other reviewer comments disappointed with the ending. For what Donna did to the cat, it was poetic justice to be taken out by the SPCA truck. And a whole lot more satisfying than the end of "No Country For Old Men", if you know what I mean.
