This is your Death is an unusual take on the tv reality gameshow concept with Josh Duhame and Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad).
From reading the synopsis below I’m quite sure how the game works within the film. Not sure how you can earn money and only earn money if you kill yourself.. is it money for the family / friends you leave behind as I’m pretty sure there are no ATM machines up in heaven. Who knows. After watching the trailer the money obviously goes to someone else but are we as humans selfless enough to take our own lives to benefit another person? That’s another topic for another day.
Today’s audience has become infatuated with watching others degrade themselves on national television. They crave a wild argument, a bloody fight, or a publicized scandal. It has become the ultimate source of entertainment. But when the boundaries seem like they can’t be pushed any further, game-show host Adam Rogers steps in to break down the wall by hosting a new game show where contestants end their lives for a chance to win money. Adam will only be satisfied if his reality show is number one in the ratings, and he’ll stop at nothing to make sure he gets there, even if it means letting go of his humanity.
Check out the trailer below:
