Imagine if the infamous Jigsaw Killer from the Saw movies watched Jumanji and got the idea for a new perfidious torture method. The result would arguably be something similar to the upcoming horror film Choose Or Die , which premieres on Netflix on Friday April 15, 2022 .
This is «Choose Or Die» on Netflix
«Choose Or Die» follows college student Layla ( Iola Evans ), who is so short on cash that she plays an ancient retro game she dug up from gamer Isaac’s ( Asa Butterfield ‘s) treasure trove in hopes of winning $125,000 in prize money Has. Curs>r is the name of this supposedly entertainment product, which quickly turns out to be a cruel, manipulative creature that influences the real world and can trick other people into harming or even killing themselves.
The sadistic game also repeatedly presents Layla with highly problematic decisions that can result in the death of other people. But if she doesn’t make up her mind, she threatens to become a victim herself. It’s not for nothing that the title of the film is «Choose Or Die». Together with Isaac, the student is now looking for a way out of the nightmare.
A horror icon & a Netflix star
Robert Englund is one of the most famous horror actors ever. He has played nightmare walker Freddy Krueger eight times in the Nightmare Of Elm Street films and Freddy vs. Jason . You can’t see Englund in the trailer for «Choose Or Die», but you can hear it. Because the actor, who also regularly works as a voice actor, lends his voice to the nasty video game in the original sound.
