Choose or Die Trailer: Netflix Cursed GameBy RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies
I remember playing a few of those text-based games way back in the day. I still have nightmares of trying to get through The Lurking Horror (look it up). Surprisingly these games are still popular with hackers and the like. Well, Netflix has given us Choose or Die, their latest original in which a retro game “Curs>r” is unboxed and wreaks havoc on a town.
Choose or Die begins after a young coder (Iola Evans) fires up a lost 80s survival horror game and unleashes a hidden curse that tears reality apart, forcing her to make terrifying decisions and face deadly consequences. Asa Butterfield helps her play the retro horror game and A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Robert Englund is also credited in the feature.
The official synopsis: Kayla, a broke student, decides to play an obscure 1980s survival computer game in pursuit of an unclaimed $100,000 prize. After a series of unexpectedly terrifying moments, she soon realizes she's no longer playing for the money, but for her own life.
Choose or Die arrives on Netflix beginning April 15.
