This sounds like a good game to avoid.
Elevator Game–a new supernatural horror film based on the online phenomenon of the same name–has begun production In Winnipeg, Canada with a new director, according to a report on Deadline.
Rebekah McKendry (Glorious) has taken over behind the cameras, replacing Michael Goi, on the film written by Travis Seppala (Captive). The cast includes Gino Anania, Alec Carlos, Megan Best, Nazariy Demkowicz, Verity Marks, Madison MacIsaac and Samantha Halas.
Elevator Game, according to the synopsis, follows teenager Ryan (Anania), “who discovers that the night his sister disappeared, she had played The Elevator Game–a ritual held in an elevator in which players try to travel to another dimension using a set of rules that can be found online. Ignoring warnings, he resolves to follow and find her.”
This “game” reportedly originated in South Korea and has become popular online around the globe over the past decade. The ritual has been blamed for various mysterious disappearances and deaths, and published articles caution potential players about the dangers.
The film is being produced by Fearworks Productions, in association with AMP, Buffalo Gal Pictures, Head Gear Films and Metrol Technology.
