“What are we all doing here?”
Death’s Roulette (Uno para Morir) released on May 5th 2023 on Paramount+. The Spanish thriller film stars Who Killed Sara’s Manola Cardona, Maribel Verdú, Carla Adell, Juan Carlos Remolina, Adriana Paz, Dagoberto Gama, and Fernando Becerril. The film runs for approximately 90 minutes.
Seven strangers wake up in an isolated mansion only to discover that they have each been chosen for a deadly and twisted game.
Here is the trailer:
Death’s Roulette is addicting from the opening sequence, bringing us a fun mix of Escape Room and Saw with a touch of Who Killed Sara? to make things over-the-top in the best way possible. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…
Starts off with a bang!
There is no set-up or fluff to deal with in this one. The audience is thrown right into things and I was completely hooked by the opening of this film. The premise may have been done before, but this film takes a step back from horror and re-invents this idea into more of a murder-mystery-thriller, which worked really well here.
If you’ve been missing the addicting series, Who Killed Sara?, you’re in luck! Manola Cardona stars in this film and does a fantastic job. The entire cast played their parts really well and I was on the edge of my seat until the very end.
Plenty of insane twists and reveals!
Sure, some of them are a bit outrageous, but they are SO ENTERTAINING! As long as you just go with it, you’ll enjoy them more.
The brief flashbacks weren’t really necessary…
There weren’t too many of them, but I honestly didn’t need them at all. They took away from the fast-paced intensity and felt more filler than anything else.
I also thought there may have been one too many twists at the end, but I appreciate that the film didn’t let us off the hook so this wasn’t a major con.
So am I in or out?
Crazy, addicting, and so intense from start to finish!
If you’re looking for an entertaining thriller to just simply enjoy, you’re in the right place. This film has some outrageous moments, but it is really entertaining and a lot of twisted fun!
