Sondra Locke, perhaps best known for her Clint Eastwood movies, is phenomenal as the brilliantly disturbed lead, Jackson. She is rageful and calculating and in complete control. Little touches like the ringmaster outfit she dons and the "horns" she draws on her forehead with lipstick make her character the epitome of sexy as well as undeniably frightening. (I hope to find someone like her someday-minus the psychotic tendencies, that is.)
Well known vixen Colleen Camp plays Donna, Jackson's lover and cohort. Obviously the female in the relationship, Donna has a more playful, little girl appeal about her.
Although this movie was not improved for DVD, has horrific sound quality(Seymour Cassel's voice was dubbed with someone else's), and is too dated with it's disco montage, it is quite a little treasure. I rented it a couple years ago and fell in love immediately, particularly with the Jackson character. With all the stupid remakes of today(like Psycho!), it's a pity something like this slips through the cracks. Death Game (a.k.a. The Seducers, a.k.a. Mr. Manning's Weekend) is good and deserves higher recognition.
By the way, this flick is based on a true story. Oooooooohhhh!
The DVD, needs to be redone. I don't think they were working with much of a source, but they caused some of the problems I saw, I.E. pauses at the chapter breaks. Plus, I think there is something on the screen, once you get into the movie, that may have been on the source but looks like something that possibly scanned in with their equipment. It is as if there is a screen between the movie and your TV screen and it has a glare on it.
ANYWAY, at least it is a cheap DVD. If you think this will be the only release of this film on DVD buy it cheap now. At least you get to see it and hey, the cover is kinda cool looking. If your hoping, as I am, that there will be a better release some day then you can pass this one by.

I like this movie but the DVD is awful. It's not letterbox, the "wedding" scene in the bedroom is cut, and the overall quality of the print is trash.Published on May 3, 2008 by H. J. Pacheco

I purchased this video just to see Colleen Camp and Sondra Locke before they got famous. The movie was a bit over the top and alot of unnecessary mayhem.Published on March 31, 2007 by Daniel M. Lefever
This movie is strange. Sort of a cross between a thiller and a S/M movie. Not one that most people would like and it should not be shown to Childern.Published on January 12, 2007 by J. R Richeson
