A smart, shocking and funny satire of media culture and human greed, 13 GAME OF DEATH is a stomach-churningly intense thriller that will have many viewers squirming in their seats. Adapted from the Thai comic-book series My Mania by Eakasit Thairaat, the film stars Noi Sukosol as a struggling band-instrument salesman who is insidiously sucked into an underground Internet reality game in which he must complete a series of 13 increasingly degrading, dangerous and deadly stunts in order to win 100 million baht. “This taut thriller was my favorite Thai film of 2006, and one of the best Thai films to come along in years.” -Wise Kwai
Screener’s Note: This film is NOT for the faint of heart. Be forewarned. Happy Halloween!
