“All Fun and Games” emerges in the ever-evolving realm of horror cinema, with the promise of twisting innocent childhood games into harrowing nightmares. Set in Salem, Massachusetts, the film introduces a cursed knife and malevolent spirits that coerce victims into participating in eerie renditions of classic games. While the premise is captivating, the film disappoints in execution. The games lack innovation, missing opportunities for thrilling adaptations. The storytelling fails to address fundamental questions, diminishing immersion. The fear factor leans towards cheap scares rather than genuine chills, relying on abrupt jump scares and rushed editing. “All Fun and Games” ultimately falls short, failing to deliver the potential horror masterpiece. To truly excel in the genre, filmmakers must embrace creativity, detail, and suspense, providing a deeper exploration of fear and a more satisfying cinematic experience for the audience.
