Reviews
Mine: Some good moments. The games show parody is quite amusing.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: It's 2019, and the U. S. is a totalitarian state; framed mass murderer Arnie is ordered to take part in a Most Dangerous Game-type TV show where convicted felons get their one chance for freedom. Relentlessly trashy big-bucks exploitation picture gets big boost from Dawson's sleazy portrayal of the game-show host. Based on a novel by Richard Bachman (Stephen King).
