Watching people play a board game ain’t ever going to be scary, and that’s essentially what we have here—after a laughably amateurish intro set in the 1920s, when the dice and cards are unearthed (in Turkey). The friends that assemble on a modern-day Maine island to try it out are uniformly obnoxious, and only the twin babysitters from Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror are recognizable. Soon enough, out come the black, full-eye contact lenses and rental costumes. The hi-def-video production looks made by people who haven’t seen The Room.
