Seeing some of your favorite childhood games get a twisted and deadly remix is not fun to experience but could be entertaining to watch in a horror film. Co-directed by Eren Celeboglu and Ari Costa and co-written by Celeboglu, Costa, and J.J. Braider, All Fun and Games premiered in theaters and on demand on Friday, September 1.

The film follows a group of teens in Salem who “discover a cursed knife that unleashes a demon that forces them to play gruesome, deadly versions of childhood games where there can be no winners, only survivors.” Asa Butterfield, Natalia Dyer, Laurel Marsden, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Summer H. Howell, Kolton Stewart, and Annabeth Gish make up the ensemble cast in All Fun and Games.
