This movie is a product of the Satanic Panic, a phenomenon in American history were widespread fear about the presence of Satanic ritual during the 1970s, and to an even greater extent during the 1980s and 1990s, was common in an attempt to suppress any activities considered anti-Christian, such as rock music, masturbating, and using one's own imagination. Life would be hell if I couldn't masturbate while pretending to be heavy metal Jesus.
It's also not a hit piece on D&D and it doesn't look down on the people who play this game.
Take a step back. Forget there is a game going on in the background, and study the characters. There is even a bit of foreshadowing going on at the beginning.
My kids actually wanted to watch this one with me but it was their bedtime. to be perfectly honest there is nothing in here a child can't see. other kids may find it rather boring. My kids would actually enjoy it for the simple fact that they enjoy sociology (yeah we're weird....sue me...) they also enjoy fantasy and anything related to D&D, unfortunately this is not that. The game takes a backseat. the majority of the film is all about building the characters and showing how each one has a personal battle that only they can fight (who doesn't!?)
Still a good movie unless you're looking for naughty armor, men in furry underpants and people waving magic swords over their heads.
So take it from a level 14 Fighter 5th edition "Stay away from the Devi's Chess", especially if your a normie.
