Story: Stupid Games starts when Celeste (Tortomassi) is hosting a dinner with her friends Mia (Ganpule) and Riley (Huckabay). She has invited Jaxon (Rolando) who must bring two friends, with Rex (Robinson) being one and the apartment maintenance man Stanley (Terzakis) filling the final slot.

The night together brings the group together for an unusual board game. It puts them through a series of tasks as the secrets of the night start to come to life.

Verdict on Stupid Games

Stupid Games is a horror mystery following a group of friends who spend a night playing a game. However, as the night unfolds, they learn about a much more sinister side to the game, which becomes a battle for survival.

This movie feels a lot like an evil Jumanji, as the game night turns from fun to demonic quickly. The idea the players are controlled by the game and forced to finish adds plenty of intensity to the story. When it comes to the activities in the game, they start simple and even get referenced as chapters of other popular games, to add some familiarity to the night. In the end, this turns into a fun horror, with a twisted addition to a game night.
