About the Movie

Josh Duhamel, Famke Janssen, and Giancarlo Esposito highlight this pulse-pounding thriller about a reality show that exploits the on-camera deaths of its players—on live TV. After a dating show ends in violence, its host Adam Rogers (Duhamel) and a ratings- hungry network exec (Janssen) launch a terrifying new program that promises fresh kills every week. The tension mounts as a kindhearted janitor (Esposito) joins the deadly program, hoping to help his struggling family survive—at any cost.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It's cast mostly with small-screen actors, looks like early-aughts TV, and raises indefensible moral dilemmas that movies like "The Hunger Games" have long since rendered moot. – Peter Debruge, Variety, Mar 11, 2017

Rotten: Neither sharp enough to qualify as satire nor emotional enough to be a standard drama, "The Show" exists in film purgatory. – Kimber Myers, Los Angeles Times, Sep 14, 2017

Rotten: Early promise quickly evaporates once the film sheds its smirk and turns increasingly sanctimonious. – Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter, Mar 21, 2017

Watch it

Not too far fetched from reality. It's only a matter of time before we have a similar shows in our televisions. This is one of those movies that it's so disturbing, yet thought provoking that you can't look away. There are some bloody parts but I find it more emotionally disturbing rather than super-graphic. Performances are excellent and the ending it's not quite what I expected but it totally works for this movie.


I watched this with a low expectation. It’s a dark movie. Gives me the feelings i had when i watched Thirteen Reasons Why. Other than that it kept my gut tight the whole movie. This movie is not for everyone, viewer discretion advised.
