Dark comedy "This Game's Called Murder" is an acid critique of the world we live in

This Game’s Called Murder (2021) is a dark comedy with elements of crime, mystery, and thriller, that explore the subjects of greed, romance, and lost innocence in a consumer-crazed, alienated society that functions as a harsh critique of society today without taking itself too seriously.

It centers on eccentric members of the Wallendorf Family. Mr. Wallendorf, a fashion mogul and designer of iconic red high-heeled shoes, Mrs. Wallendorf, his conniving brutal wife, and Jennifer Wallendorf, their daughter and a social media powerhouse who’s just trying to figure out love, friendship, and world dominance. The eccentric Wallendorf’s struggles to maintain the facade of a prominent successful family while their violent nature rips them apart.

Awards-winner Adam Sherman has been the writer, producer, and director of the film. He is known for being behind Dead Doll (2004), Happiness Runs (2010), Crazy Eyes (2012), and She’s Just a Shadow (2019), and also has been the producer of Wristcutters: A Love Story (2006).

The Wallendorf couple is played by Ron Perlman (The Name of the Rose (1986), Cronos (1993), Hellboy (2004)) and Natasha Henstridge (Species (1995), Maximum Risk (1996), Ghosts of Mars (2001)), in a cast that also includes Vanessa Marano, Judson Mills, Annabel Barrett, Challen Cates, Mark Kubr, James Lastovic, and Olivia Blue.
