A group of old friends reunites for a nostalgic evening of fun and games after a decade apart. After one too many, they decide to play a drinking game, but it's quickly revealed that this game comes with supernatural stakes.

Gatlopp: Hell of a Game is a 2022 American horror/comedy film directed by Alberto Belli, and written by Jim Mahoney, who also plays one of the four leads (Paul) along with Emmy Raver-Lampman (Sam), Jon Bass (Cliff), and Sarunas J. Jackson (Dominic).

"Gatlopp" is the Swedish word for "running the gauntlet."

I thought this one was a fun watch. It's certainly nothing revolutionary as a piece of filmmaking, but it has a simple, tight plot with a fun twist at the end, and it's satisfying to see the four main characters realize that to survive the game, they don't have to be heroic or saintly, but merely to focus, work together, and be honest with themselves and each other.
