Choose or Die (2022), formerly known as CURS>R (which they should’ve kept), is a survival horror film similar to SAW and Escape Room (any of the movies with the same name). It follows Kayla, who finds a cassette game (Woah, flashbacks) in a box at her friend Hal’s place.
The opening scene hooked me and gave me a glimpse of what to expect. I was not disappointed. The effects were excellent, and the 64bit renderings were a great touch to keep the whole found 80s game thing going.
I wish some of the game segments were longer. My favorite was in the diner, which was ridiculously good.
It seems they left it open for a sequel too, so we’ll see if that happens.
I loved Choose or Die and gave it 4.5 out of 5 Stars.
