” …the lack of buildup and stakes make scenes in Story Game dry rather than inspiring cold sweats. The twist at the end is interesting, compared with most of the film, but it is not enough to make the movie watchable. Story Game is what happens when a film tries to draw from movies rather than life; weak dialogue and slack tension.” Nightmarish Conjurings
