On today’s episode, we continue talking about 1982’s Deadly Games. We predict there has never been a more thoughtful or thorough discussion of this film by any other podcast or media outlet. We discuss the killer’s motive and why his identity needed to be a secret (it didn’t!), and wonder just how many people are boning each other in this town. But before we get into the discussion, Adam Roche from Attaboy Clarence and The Secret History of Hollywood drops by to help us set expectations the film can’t possibly meet.
In this episode, we begin our discussion on 1982’s Deadly Games, a film that, at first, appears to be a standard slasher, what with its wheezing, black-gloved killer and helpless victim, but with the addition of a very cheesy looking board game. Also, what role will football hall-of-famer Dick Butkus play in the film? There’s only one way to find out!
