Grindhouse Releasing’s new 4K restoration of Peter S. Traynor’s DEATH GAME is now playing in theaters, and scoring rave reviews! We couldn’t be more pleased with the audience reaction to this newly rediscovered 1970s cult classic.
Critic Sean M. Peters writes, “It’s sexy, grotesque, shocking and schlocky all at once, a perfectly campy cinematic trip that’ll leave you looking over your shoulder in the kitchen for weeks to come.” (CityBeat)
Jim Healy of the Wisconsin Film Festival calls DEATH GAME “a truly odd and genuinely nightmarish American thriller” – don’t miss the festival screening coming up on April 11!
Bloody-Disgusting editor John Squires says, “If you loved ‘X’ and you’re looking for more of that 70s-era exploitation insanity, make it your next watch. Colleen Camp & Sondra Locke are hurricanes of manic energy. Two of the most fun performances out there.”
Bruce Holecheck of Cinema Arcana calls DEATH GAME “a stunning release that was definitely worth the wait, and an easy inclusion in my Top Ten of 2022 line-up.”
And Nathaniel Thompson of Mondo-Digital hails DEATH GAME as “wholly unique and unforgettable”!
