Critics reviews

Not especially novel in its use of hackneyed plot twists, GAMES is worth viewing for the mise-en-scène alone. Famed costume designer Morton Haack was responsible for compiling the mod-meets-carnivalesque décor of the brownstone, which features a Roy Lichtenstein painting, a fun house mirror, and a sadistic pinball machine.

It’s about the shrewdest movie tide of the year, and the movie itself is not as disappointing as its plot, which is riddled with implausibilities. The difference is the decor in all its dazzling popeyed presence as the main protagonist of this horror film. If there are chills in the film, they emerge from our expectations that the walls are going to start climbing up the characters, rather than vice versa. The best way to enjoy Games is to case the joint and forget the tenants.
