‘Play, strip… or die!’
Strip Mahjong: Battle Royale is a 2011 Japanese horror thriller film directed by Mac P. Forever [as Makku P. Fôevâ] from a screenplay written by Ryosuke Oomine. The movie stars Hiroaki Kawatsure, Nina, Anzu Sasaki, Kaori Sasaki, Runa Shimotsuki, Hitomi Usano and Yuzu Yamanashi [as Mako Higashio].

A handful of mysterious Japanese women take part in a deranged web show that makes them remove their clothes when they lose a round of Mahjong. When there is nothing left to hide, secrets are revealed and they must take their punishment…


” …this film is pretty much Poker After Dark meets a Pink film. It’s not a ground-breaking film by any means you can find better Asian sleaze almost anywhere else […] But you get a rather absurd concept with it’s tongue planted firmly in it’s cheek along some pretty solid nudity and some decent suspense.” Cinema Head Cheese

“Perhaps an even cursory understanding of Mahjong might let us in on the suspense, but even the sequence of losers is predictable and their punishments monotonous. It’s also hard to sympathize with characters who would adhere to the rules of the game rather than ganging up on their torments (who they have outnumbered), and even more unbelievable that their “hosts” would adhere to their own rules at the climax when they have cheated earlier on.” DVD Beaver

“Perhaps if you’re a mahjong fan, watching four women play a few rounds is entertaining, but this film managed to provide me with the unusual experience of being bored with a quartet of naked Japanese women.” DVD Talk

“I suppose I was anticipating a derivative movie that mirrored something like Red Room, however, this film is really just a drawn-out striptease. As long as you know what “kind” of film this is, you’ll be alright. Kato is good for a few laughs as a pretty wacky game show host, beyond that it’s a countdown to full frontal.” Horror News

“This was a very unpleasant film. Very misogynistic. And since I don’t understand the game of mahjong it was very confusing to follow as well. I can’t recommend this film to anyone, but I suppose there is someone out there who might like this.” Inside Pulse
