A game that requires quite a large group of people. Each player is a villager in a town.
A minimum of 2 players are chosen as werewolves and are not allowed to tell their role to the other players. Every night they eat one of the non-werewolf players, taking them out of the game.
The next day the villagers vote on who they think is a werewolf. Whoever gets the most votes is banished. The other players find out whether they are a werewolf or not. The player that is chosen is then out of the game, whether they were innocent or not.
One of the villagers also has a secret power which they, like the werewolves, are not allowed to tell anyone. These are called Seers. They can choose one villager at a time and see whether they are a werewolf or not. If they find a werewolf they have to try and convince the other players to vote for that person without giving their role away.
This cycle repeats until either all the werewolves have been found or all the villagers have been eaten.
Person #1 - I think Person #2 is the werewolf.
Person #2 - I think Person #1 is the werewolf.
Person #3 - I think Person #2 is the werewolf.
Game host - Person #2 has the most votes and is therefore banished. I can now reveal that Person #2 was innocent.
Person #3 - Darn

During her distress she is pulled into the place between life and death and meets a girl called Holly, who tries to help her move on. Susie refuses to a watches over her loved ones as her family falls apart after her death and her murderer walks free.
A pretty good film depending on your taste in movies. The main storyline is good and there are places that are suspenseful and keep you on the edge of your seat. There are also a few slightly creepy places that you find yourself shivering about for a few hours after the film. However, there are a few quite strange parts that the film could really do without. You have to really be prepared to get past them if you don't like them as the story does get back to normal again after them.
Person 1: Did you see the Lovely Bones?
Person 2: Yeah, it was a bit weird though.
Person 1: Really? I enjoyed it.
