Watch The Running Man
- 1 hr 41 min
This sci-fi thriller is based on a short novel written by horror author Stephen King under the pseudonym Richard Bachman. The story involves a prisoner, played here by Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is forced by an authoritarian regime to participate in a game show with life-or-death consequences. The unwilling contestant must run from the game's pursuers, who want him dead. The show, which is rigged against the contestant, is overseen by a host played by Richard Dawson, the real-life host, at the time, of the TV game show Family Feud. The film was directed by Paul Michael Glaser and has received mixed reviews.
