A group of friends celebrate their high school graduation at a lake house in the woods. One of the classmates recommends that they have a bit of fun playing the old fashioned game 'Dead Body' - where one player is "the body", one player is "the killer" and all of the other players try to figure out "whodunit". Unfortunately, on this particular night, the game ends up featuring real dead bodies and a real life killer. The bodies begin piling up and, in an Agatha Christie "And Then There Were None" sort of style, the survivors are forced to solve the mystery of who the killer is amongst them before there is no one left standing. Contains strong language, violence and gore.
While weekending at a lake house, a group of high school friends play the game 'Dead Body' - where one player is "the body" and one player is "the killer." On this particular night, the game ends up featuring real dead bodies and a real life killer.

My best friend and I watched this. She called it in the first 3 minutes of the film. We wanted to skip to the end because the acting was so bad. We decided to watch it in its entirety, instead. Bad decision.
Thought this was a really clever movie, to be truthful. The acting didn't really stand out as bad to me, and while I didn't really pinpoint who the killer truly was until 3/4ths of the way in, I'm still new to this and deeply enjoyed this movie. If anything, I'd love a little more character building so each death felt more monumental then just "oh, now this person died, okay". By the end, I will admit that I was emotionally enveloped in the remaining characters, and the motive was one that was both sensical and believable, but I felt like there could have been more that went into this. Overall? 74%, it was definitely worth a watch but I hardly think I'm going to rewatch it anytime soon.
BAd acting but amusing! HA!
Not a bad flick. The acting is subpar for the most part, though a few scenes are decent. The killer, while not the most obvious, is easy to detect if you're paying attention. The cinematography isn't noteworthy, but its better than what I'd expected. The set pieces and atmosphere are really good, though, and even though the characters aren't that great you eventually at least grow to like the main two enough to not want them dead. Good popcorn movie, worth at least one watch.
