The Murder Game is an unabashed love letter to old-school B-movie slasher flicks. Everything is here; a group of teens find themselves trapped with a killer, while one by one they get killed off. Yes, you’ve seen it all before, dumb characters making dumb moves and separating from the group and we even get a little sex and drugs to spice it up. But guess what… it works. This reminded me of an earlier low-budget horror show called Hide and Go Shriek, which was also incredibly flawed, but it wasn’t trying to be anything more than what it was. The same goes for this game. When a group of teens play this murder game in a storage facility, you get what you expect, yet director Robert Harari knows what he is doing. With a low-budget, he uses what he has and really makes the kind of movie he wants to make. I really dug the storage setting; seriously, I’ve been in one and they are pretty damn creepy. Add to that a couple of make-up effects that actually work and a few stalk and slash sequences that are better than most of the big-budget Scream rip-offs that this celebrates, and you’ll have yourself a good time.
