Deadly Game

Deadly Game is a suspense/adventure originally produced for cable television under the title The Osirus Legacy. A small group of people from various backgrounds are transported via plane and boat to an isolated private island. None of them know each other, but each has received an intriguing invitation from a Mr. Osirus. The lure for each of these people has been the promise of a large sum of money, and each has their own particular need. When they are all assembled, they are told that their money is in six bags containing one million dollars each, which has been placed in various locations on the island. They must go on a hunt for these bags which will lead them to a boat, their only means of escape from the island. They will be given a two hour head start, after which they will be pursued and, if caught, killed. Although they have yet to meet the mysterious Mr. Osirus face to face, it seems each of them has crossed his path at some point in their life, and Mr. Osirus has a long memory. Osirus is the name of the Egyptian God of the dead.
