In ‘X-GAME,’  Hideaki is kid­napped and when he awak­ens the next day, finds him­self in a recre­ation of his old school­room, along with his recent­ly reunit­ed class­mates. Trapped and held cap­tive by mys­te­ri­ous hood­ed fig­ures, each of them must now play a bru­tal­ly vio­lent, ver­sion of the pun­ish­ment game…or face death. A twisty, horror/mystery ‘mash-up’ pep­pered with dark humor and inven­tive gore, direc­tor Yôhei Fukuda’s (‘Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad aka Chanbara Beauty’) shows how revenge is a dish best served cold and not very sweet — Japanese style
