    Camera Obscura Releasing Deadly Games

    Source.

    German label Camera Obscura has confirmed that it will bring to Blu-ray director Rene Manzor's film Game Over a.k.a. Deadly Games (1989), starring Brigitte Fossey, Louis Ducreux, Patrick Floersheim, and Alain Lalanne. The release is expected to arrive on the market in time for Christmas.

    The upcoming Blu-ray release will be sourced from a brand new 2K restoration of the film which Camera Obscura will complete together with French label Le chat qui fume. A French Blu-ray release is also expected to be made available for purchase during the winter holiday season.

    Synopsis: He is nine years old. His name is Thomas. He is a little genius. He believes in Santa Claus. His two favorite pastimes: computers and super heroes. December 24th, midnight. Hidden under the dining room table, Thomas waits for Santa Claus to appear, but he is about to experience the most frightening night of his entire life.

    I''ll take it, sounds interesting, I'm really looking forward to Fango Bollente though and wish they would release that one this year.

    Looks rather Home Aloneish, but this came out before that, right?

    Finished this last night. Takes a bit of time to hit its stride, the first half hour is slow, but after that, it proves to be really entertaining stuff. It's not ultra gory at all but definitely creepy in spots - strong enough that it's not really kid friendly, haha - and it's dated in a lot of ways but that adds to the fun. It's VERY eighties, but also really creative, unique and well made.

    I can't recommend this movie highly enough. I absolutely loved it, best film I've seen in a long time! Definitely Home Alone-ish but that's fine by me! Clever, creepy, well-shot and great performances all around. I'm already planning on watching this again this week! I know it's an expensive release and not everyone has Region B capabilities but for those who do have a way to see this, I would strongly suggest doing it!
