In the fictional town of Grace Arbor the answers are never clear. Who is underneath the mask? This is the story of a group of high school kids who amuse themselves by pulling pranks on unsuspecting students and teachers. They are all popular, good looking, the kids voted most likely to succeed. But at their core lies a cruelty and shallowness which comes with the territory of privilege.

One night, a prank goes horribly wrong and a teenager is killed. The gang covers it up as a drowning accident but five years later, their lives are turned upside down when Jimmy Edwards, is killed by a serial killer wearing a haunting Marilyn Monroe mask.

Soon, the gang are killed one by one in manners mirroring the pranks they pulled in high school. Is it revenge? Is it karma? Is it the dead boy’s spirit coming back to avenge his death? Is it his twin brother, Liam, who has come to Grace Arbor asking questions? One thing is certain… No-one is laughing now.

Reviews:

Kill Game is a film that’s constantly working against itself. Everything about it that’s “good” is undermined by something mind numbingly stupid. Cliched horror tropes are checked off like a grocery shopping list with the cherry-on-top being the baffling last act which defies explanation. Suffice to say, the final two items to cross of the list of tropes are (1) terrible character decisions and (2) a poorly conceived trick twist, and the film crosses them off with gusto.” Luke, Killerflix
