Klund, if you liked Hunger Games, you should really watch the movie Turkey Shoot (second source) - it has a similar theme.  Kyle, Pooteewheet, and I went to see it last night at the Riverview.

"After these egregious and unsavory moments, the film inexplicably introduces a WTF character named Alph (Steve Rackman), a mentally-impaired, inhuman monster who looks like the unholy love child of Mr. Hyde and Dr. Moreau’s humanimals and who obeys all of Tito’s commands without question.

Now remember, this is supposed to be a dystopian film about a fascist Australia and a “most dangerous game”-style hunt, not a strange fantasy featuring mutants and other fanciful creatures. But whatever, the monstrous, hirsute Alph shows up on the scene and, eventually, gets bisected by a bulldozer bucket (but not before he dines on one of Dodge’s amputated toes)."

Let us not forget the Japanese classic BATTLE ROYALE.

Based on the novel of the same name (which is also a great read), it brought us the "violent competition" plot before Hunger Games, and made it far more vicious.

It all seems a bit scary for me.

Hey, I think the bit about the bulldozer bucket is a bit of a spoiler eh. For all that anyone could have known without having read this first, Alph might have run off with Chris at the end of the movie to create a new and better world.
