Review (heavy spoilers):
It will be genuinely impossible to review this episode without spoilers so if you want to be surprised by the conclusion (well, don’t watch the show for one but also maybe pass on reading this post until later). We are down to our last five contestants in this game of death and after running an entire day they all all seem pretty energised still (even the girl who fainted and was carried the last bit seems to make a startling recovery). And where are any of their parents, teachers, local police, or anyone else given the entire class is now either dead or wandering around in the mountains at night? Not to mention, the show is still insisting that a real virus somehow became a computer virus.
However, if you watched eleven episodes of this, clearly you accepted that this was B Grade horror and such gaping holes in story-telling were excused due to genre and general entertainment principles so we’ll move on rather than raising multiple other issues with the narrative that I’ve ignored thus far in the name of having at least one decent horror to watch this season (though the word decent when applied to horror definitely required redefining).
So the big secret? No one can live!
Wait, you mean you figured that out already? Really? And they were so careful about hiding that (heavy sarcasm).
Yet despite the heavy implication that all participants are now dead watch through the credits and see the sequel bait ending. This show most definitely knows its horror tropes and it played it right until the end. Well, as the opening song says, “This is the end.” I will review the whole series later.
Thanks for reading.
