Title in Japan: ファイナル・デス・ゲーム
Director: Álvaro de Armiñán

Country: Spain
Running Time: 90 min

Jumanji hooks up with Final Destination to produce this patently ridiculous story about a bunch of kids who unearth a creepy board game called Mamba, apparently left over from the Spanish Inquisition. Right. Of course they have to play it. Each throws the dice, takes a card and reads its cryptic message (in English!), then dies accordingly and horribly, usually accompanied by screen-saver-level special effects. The last two players (Mike Vogel and Eliza Dushku) then learn that they, too, will have to roll the dice, because though to lose means death, winning will undo all the nastiness. Double snore.
