The Killing Jar (1997)

aka The Killing Game

How bad is it? Completely mediocre.
Should you see it? I can't think of a reason to.

This has had some horrendous reviews and some positive ones; it might be that people are confusing other films having the same title with it (there was one in 1994 and one in 2010). It's also possible that people were expecting a horror film, as that's what the production company is known for. This one has a lot of actors that will have you saying "Where have I seen them before?" like Brett Cullen, Tamlyn Tomiya and Wes Studi. Famed character actors like M. Emmett Walsh and Brion James also show up, so the acting's not bad and it's a good-looking film. It's just a bad storyline. A small town is experiencing child murders and a guy going slowly crazy (and overacting) isn't sure if he's a witness or the killer. There's an improbable ending.
