In a bid to curb juvenile delinquency in Japan, classrooms of teenagers are sent to a deserted island with one mission: to be the last one standing.

Armed with weapons and fitted with collars that will explode if they don’t play the game, as the students’ petty playground rivalries turn deadly; chaos reigns.

Kinji Fukasaku’s gleefully violent satire became an instant classic – helped in no small part by the casting of the legendary Beat Takeshi as the teenagers’ jovial but merciless teacher.

Japanese with English subtitles
