A TV movie well worth the time it takes to watch it!
Seldom have I seen a TV movie that I recorded and saw a second time. The Choking Game was one that I did see twice. The subject was well handled in every aspect. It did not glorify the “game” but made us aware in a riveting way of the existence of this horrible “game” and some of its consequences. It all began with well written dialog which was believable for each character. The acting was excellent as well as the directing which was top notch. Also, it was visually well done particularly when it included images from the person playing the “game”. Kudos to cast and crew! More people should see this TV movie and learn the signs of this scary “game” that can and has killed kids as young as 9 years old as well as a famous actor.
Shallow teens but compelling story
Taryn is a typical teenager with very little personality and an overbearing mother. One day she meets Nina, a girl who takes part in a popular trend spreading throughout North America, the Choking Game (choking one’s self to get high from passing out). Taryn changes from good grades and nice friends to trying to drunkenly seduce her guy friend, mocking her best friend Elena and yelling constantly at her mother. When Nina goes too far and hits her head on the floor while passing out, it leaves her in a catatonic state and disfigured as well.
The Choking Game is dangerous. I am a student and I see kids at the high school playing it all the time. However, it is no more dangerous than the previous trend, cutting. While adults consider these things self-harm, they are, but more often than not I see kids doing it for popularity, because they think coming to school with cuts on their arms or bandages looks cool (it doesn’t). The kids who are seriously doing it for the purpose of harm conceal it, they don’t do it so blatantly obvious like in this movie.
The kids in this movie were shallow, had little or no personalities (save for Elena), and they all dressed in the same styles, it was hard at first even to remember who was who because there was nothing to distinguish them from each other. This was based on a fictional book but the book was based on true cases. However, the idea that Nina became disfigured and catatonic was difficult to believe. The cases I’ve seen or heard of are kids dying from the Choking Game (saw it on C.T.V. News) and mental retardation caused by it. Most kids just pass out and then wake up giggling like idiots, it’s rather pointless but apparently an addictive behavior, you’ve got to give the film company credit for at least raising awareness.
Honestly this movie wasn’t bad, but I think the company should have done more research on the case, or asked what it was from a kid’s point of view, not an adults’.
