Editorial Reviews

A wealthy socialite couple (James Caan and Katharine Ross) find themselves in over their heads in the psychological thriller Games. After inviting a mysterious woman (Simone Signoret) into their home, the couple discovers her psychic abilities and asks her to arrange some "mind games" for their amusement. The fun soon turns dangerous when one of the games goes horribly wrong in this edge-of-your seat mystery that will leave you guessing until the very end.

Mystery and thrills at every angle.

Oh, they threw in one last surprise - but it was really a let down (and a bad attempt to fool us "Diabolique" fans.)

Every once in a while I search the internet for the DVD and am amazed that this is still unavailable.

Now for some good news: the Universal/Amazon MOD disc of GAMES (1967) has been corrected by Universal Home Video. The new revised edition surfaced in early November of 2011. I can now heartily recommend it to fans of the film. The pixilation that marred the final chapter has been corrected. The film is presented in anamorphic widescreen (2:35-1).

This video-on-demand Universal Vault Series DVD looks like it was produced in a fog through a gauze filter, dark, grainy, as if the print used for the copy was completely worn out. It's not watchable. TCM recently showed this film and it looked pristine, so clearly this is a manufacturing problem. It's an interesting, stylish film but its not worth watching in this Amazon on-demand offering. $17.99? You must be kidding. I want my money back.

This is the one of the BEST thrillers I've ever seen. The plot is written to keep even the most intelligent viewers guessing to the end. The movie takes a little time to build steam, but watch out when it does, these guys play some powerful mind, and realistic games.

I am with the other reviewers here, this classic is great...but the DVD messes up at about 1hr, 32min. into the movie. Universal needs to fix this problem, because this movie is great when you can see it in its original widescreen Techniscope aspect ratio (back when they made "real" widescreen movies). The video quality is ok for DVD-R, until the picture "speeds up" near the end. It's like it is time compressed for some reason? Who knows, who cares! Just fix the problem because I doubt this will ever be a "legit" pressing from Universal. These DVD-Rs are usually limited, so if you are a fan of this classic mystery, get it! Even with the mess up near the end, it is great to have a copy of this on widescreen DVD after all these years. They sure don't make movies like this anymore...
Final score: Movie 5 stars, DVD 3 stars.

[GAMES - (1967) - Widescreen - directed by Curtis Harrington] I was unfamiliar with this title, but the cast intrigued me enough to give it a stab, and I was pleased I took the plunge. James Caan and Katherine Ross play an affluent, eccentric couple who engage in peculiar activities to amuse themselves, some of which are occult based without having real ties or connections to actual dark magics. Performed more for kicks and staged to entertain guests held at soirees at their incredibly atmospheric 60's decorated home, which is prominently featured throughout the film and which adds a distinct element of the surreal necessary to make the movie a success.

Enter Simone Signoret, a tarot reader and pseudo-psychic who sells cosmetics, who engrains herself into the couple's lifestyle, and soon moves in and adds newfound mystery to an already ambiguous household. Soon enough, there is an unspoken "Let the games begin" aura of cat and mouse as mystery, mayhem, murder and madness become the houses' New Order. Bewitching in its execution, it's entertaining right 'till the end credits roll.

Simone Signoret steals the show, Katherine Ross is fine as the frazzled housewife but, surprisingly, James Caan is the film's weak link as far as the acting goes - he's no more than adequate, and his role could have been portrayed by almost anyone else with the same conviction. True, it's an early role for him, but none of the fire of his 70's creations are displayed here. No matter, the film is still extremely entertaining as a 60's timepiece of murder mystery, and very much a by-product of 1967 sensibilities, which worked wonders for me. Oh sure, if you think hard while watching you can deduce what the probable outcome will be, but if you're content to sit back and let the amusement unfold, you're in for a treat. Enjoy the 'Games'.

Katharine Ross and a pre-'Godfather' James Caan star as a married couple that love games. Strange, occult, imaginative ones. Simone Signoret is an Avon Lady that stops in and ends up staying. Enter 'Norman', a delivery man who is strongly attracted to Ross. The couple think it funny to freak Norman out and shoot him, thus starting a new game that isn't much fun anymore.

A favorite since 1969, this movie has been hard to find for years. Katharine Ross is a pleasure to watch, and James Caan is interesting, knowing what a performance he is capable of as Sonny Corleone just three years later. Simone Signoret, always a star, gives a mystique to the film. More substance in this than many "thrillers" made today.

I'd seen this years ago and enjoyed the psychological mystery elements. These are so well played by excellent actors, (Katherine Ross and James Caan just getting their starts) and the mesmerizing lady with the secret behind her secrets with her bee-stung eyes (Simone Signoret). I searched for this for years and am so glad to be able to view it again with its innuendos and "games", trying to ferret out which "games' are real and which are simple teases, only later to turn into something real at ever deeper depths. It's one to be kept in the collection vault for a stormy, dark afternoon.

Cult director Curtis Harrington's 1967 bizarre thriller Games is at last available on DVD, via Amazon's Univeral Vault on-demand dvd-r line. It's a feast for the eyes as the weird characters indulge in perverse occult-y moves in their lavishly decored home. Stars Simone Signoret, Katharine Ross and James Caan. There were complaints about the first pressing that it was either suffering from pixellation or speeding up in the final moments. This has been corrected, but I have to say the movie still looks very grainy as if shot through a gauze curtain, but this may well be the way it always looked in cinemas. You won't find it anywhere else, so if you're a Harrington fan this is the only Games in town. And well worth checking out.
