DC’s Shudder Pick of the Weekend – Battle Royale

One of the best damned films of the last twenty years, Battle Royale is streaming on AMC’s Shudder; and if you haven’t checked it out and you’re a subscriber, there’s never been a better time to catch up! Trust us… you NEED this movie in your life!

And even if you have already seen it, there’s no reason not to give it another watch… it’s that good!

Synopsis:
In a world where teenagers have no respect and adults are losing control, there can be only one solution: Battle Royale! See what happens when you let a high school class loose on an island, arm them, and then give them a simple choice: Kill your friends, or have them kill you… with poison, cross-bows, machetes, and dynamite.

“Beat” Takeshi Kitano (Violent Cop, Zatoichi) is a teacher pushed to the edge by his unruly charges. Kidnapped and gassed, his students wake up with exploding metal rings around their necks. If they rebel, they could lose their heads. Now they have three days, and only one is permitted to survive this grisly battle to the death.
