    It reminded me of everything from "Ten Little Indians" to a low-budget take on Neil Simon’s "Murder by Death" without the laughs. It’s diverting for people who love games, but not for the squeamish. show more

    Jeannette Catsoulis The New York Times

    By the midway point, viewers will be questioning whether they would rather remain in their seats or put their eyes out with a fork. show more
