"Fuck you again, you punk ass motherfucker" - Pin Stripe
Because I'll watch Keith David in anything I checked out this lowkey indie film variant on the '13 Beloved'/'13 Sins' films. A group of strangers are lured into an underground clubs progressively more dangerous games, in the hope of winning its big money prize.

Started well with hints it was going down an anti religious/capitalism route but it never really set out a motive for its madness other than personal greed. And it futher suffered by having weak central protagonists and dull supporting contestant characters. Not to be too harsh on filmmaker Nicholas Bushman though, it did contain a few decent scenes like the music montage (wish I'd have made a note of the song), and Lion looked pretty dope.
