During a Turkish archeological dig early last century, an ancient board game said to have entertained demons was unearthed. Now nearly 90 years later, a group of vacationing friends -- including a cynic (Danielle Harris of HALLOWEEN), a rich jerk (James Duval of DONNIE DARKO), a slutty starlet (Mircea Monroe of ''Hart Of Dixie''), a jock (Nick Menell of FRIDAY THE 13TH) and prudish twin sisters (Electra & Elise Avellan of GRINDHOUSE) -- discover the game hidden in an old house on a remote Maine island. And with a roll of the dice, their darkest secrets will unleash all the greed, jealousy and lusts of Hell itself. Richard Tyson (BLACK HAWK DOWN) and Robert Patrick (TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY) co-star in this gory shocker that Horror.com calls ''good ol' fashioned horror movie fun!''

Yes, we all know how easy it is to pan a movie (no pun intended) when you've viewed it as a "freebie" and have invested nothing in it financially; it's something else entirely when after watching a movie under such circumstances you declare, "HELL YEAH! I'm DEFINITELY going to go out and *BUY* that one for myself!"
No, many of the "negative" reviewers are not entirely incorrect in some of their assessments -- the story can get a bit "formulaic" at times, and it *CAN* seem confusing and full of plot holes if one is mere "casually viewing" and not paying particularly close attention to the details of the story as it unfolds. One of the biggest complaints, re: the physical representation of the "Pan" character, is such a lame diss to me that I fear that these folks probably would've preferred that the thing had been done in some gaudy CGI effect rather than in the raw and very surreal way in which they presented it in this film which actually fits the mood and the tone of the movie. As for any problems I might have personally had with the movie, my biggest and only real complaint with the movie, as some others have already mentioned, was its tacked-on ending which while not anything that totally destroyed the movie still played like a safe-escape puss-out that leaves us with the sort of ambiguous ending that forces us to draw our own conclusions (a severely overdone staple in modern horror movies) rather than just letting the movie end on its raw & gritty note... in other words, they chose to go with more of a "Jumanji" type ending than one that evoked more of its "Evil Dead" element.
So there's my dilemma: recommend a movie that I think gets short shrift unjustifiably only to set myself up for flaming missiles of hatred should someone accept my recommendation and winds up agreeing with the common concensus? ...or just keep my opinion to myself and enjoy all the fun trappings this movie has to offer in the peace of my own home but feel guilty that there are others out there who might likewise have the same appreciation for this movie as I but who have been made apprehensive about wanting to take that chance on something so universally frowned upon? (sort of like how the game in the movie challenges you to bear your soul honestly... and suffer the consequences of what you've just shared with everybody -- a classic "No Win" situation)
Now it is not the best movie out there, but it holds it's own horror movie wise. It reminds me alot of jumanji and the evil dead. Its a very fun idea and a great watch. At the end of the day it's a good movie and it doesn't cost alot of money to own. Where can you go wrong?
Actor Robert Patrick of Terminator 2 fame both acts and produces this movie about ancient evil spirits being released and possessing people.
The premise is good but poorly executed with the typical sub standard acting of a lower budget film.
Bottom line recommendation ... It's okay to rent and watch once but to purchase I would recommend you spend your money on something better.
great plot good acting too and some blood and dead bodies for good measure
this movie reminded me of another movie called open graves mbam-setup-220.127.116.112
