The Poker Club (2008)

The Poker Club (2008)

A group of friends deal with death on poker night.

RATING:

2h2s

PLOT

A poker-themed horror/thriller in which a group of friends meet for their weekly poker game and discover that there is an intruder in the house.  After accidentally killing him their lives are never the same and they start mysteriously dying off one by one.

SKILLS

This movie avoids the complete ’72’ rating because at times I actually found myself intrigued by the story.  And it does deserve a bit of credit for being the only film in the genre of ‘poker horror’, but overall I can’t recommend this film in any serious way.  The best thing I can say is that the acting, dialogue and screenplay are soild, bordering on mediocre.

LEAKS

Let’s not kid ourselves, this is a terrible movie.  The story doesn’t make a lot of sense ( I still don’t fully understand the ending, and not in a good way) and the acting is just a step above comedically-awful.   Don’t waste your time, there are better poker movies out there, and there are certainly better thrillers out there.

POKER AUTHENTICITY

Not relevant.

There’s basically no poker in this movie, save for a brief opening scene.

 

Watching poker is great, but wouldn’t you rather be playing? Play free poker.

Psssst! We’re on social media. See, what we do there.
