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.
