4 contestants in an enclosed room. 1 box of household items and a lot of imagination paints the wall red with in this ultra splatter film from Japan. This dvd will have all sorts of goodies so beware!

1.0 out of 5 stars Gorehounds beware!!! May 19, 2007
Format:DVD
I would have liked to give Red Room no stars at all, but unfortunately you have to give it at least 1. That's 1 more star than it deserves. I bought this DVD thinking that it would be something similar to the infamous Guinea Pig series. Boy was I wrong! Yes, they are B-movies, but while Guinea Pig delivers exatly what it promises, this movie gives you nothing that it promises.

On the front cover, it warns the viewer that this movie contains graphic violence. That could not be further from the truth. What I got most out of this movie, was almost soft-core, excruciatingly fake sounding, sex-scenes, and IMPLIED scenes of disturbing violence. That's right. Implied NOT graphic.

Now, I am a big fan of japanese movies and Unearthed Films has released other good, very gory movies, like Guinea Pig and Aftermath. However, Red Room was not worth the $14.99 I paid for it, or the 68 minutes I spent watching it. Red Room is not worth a single cent of your money, or a second of your time.

The sad thing is, Unearthed Films probably realized this, which led to their false-advertising DVD cover. For shame, Unearthed Films, for shame. You disappoint me.

If you're looking for a movie with almost soft-core, fake-sounding porn scenes, than Red Room is for you. However, if you're looking for some graphic, gory, ultra-violence, than I suggest you watch Guinea Pig: The Devil's Experiment. It took away the bad taste in my mouth that Red Room left.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's like Truth or Dare, but the dares become more daring December 22, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First off, a warning: the film quality of this movie is destitute, barely meeting the quality of a poorly-budgeted soap opera. Furthermore, the acting, music and sets were subpar even compared to the film quality. That said, when I noticed these flaws during the first few minutes I wanted to return it--then, I decided to wrench through it only to be pleasantly surprised.

Sometimes a movie wins my favor even when it's trash. Red Room was trash. But fun trash to watch with friends and a few drinks. Watching this in solitary sobriety would be a grave, aggravating and likely boring mistake. This in mind, my rating is one of personal entertainment value and not a rational assessment as it would apply to all viewers.

I found myself appreciating some of the torture-pornesque "dares" (although I would have taken the dares much further had I been the writer) of the over-simplistic King Game. In this game all four players draw one of the four cards each. He who holds the King gets to declare what the others must do in order to remain in the game. Naturally, as the game progresses and people who were victems of previous turns become Kings, the dares evolve from sophomoric to mean to cruel to perversely malevolent. But the players, who were given poorly written backgrounds to convince the viewer of their desperation to win, endure since they all covet the prize money.

The violence and gore of which the viewer would be admonished on the DVD cover are more implied than graphic. There is nothing of shocking nature to anyone who has seen either Saw 1-5, Cube 1-3 or Hostel 1-2 (all of which were WAY more shocking than anything in Red Room). My entertainment came with the quiet anticipation of the next vengefully cruel challenge by the King.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG!!! March 2, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
THIS MOVIE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!!! This Japanese movie is very good, but it made my stomach sick after watching it.

Red Room is about four people locked in a room playing a card game. The one who gets the KING card gets two people, and they have to do what the person tells them to do.

This movie is not for kids. Of course, everybody knows that right?
