||A remake of “Death Game” from 1977.
||Two young women turn up at the door of a luxury house, inhabited by an architect whose wife and chidren are away at the beach. It is raining and they are dressed in skimpy party gear, and are soaking wet. They persuade the householder to let them in, and what follows is mayhem of one sort or another.
||There is female nudity, sex and violence and actually not much else.
||Had I known anything about the director’s previous work I would not have watched this – breaking my first rule. However I did not break the second one, and watched it to the end. You can imagine how it goes. After the sex there is retribution, but honestly what was the point. It was weak. Could the girls have dug a five foot hole in the garden with shovels? I think not.
