Christian Slater's 'Mind Games' has been cancelled. It was rubbish.
ABC have ruthlessly axed Christian Slater's Mind Games midseason after low rated airings. For the next two weeks, the network will use the Tuesday 10pm slot for extra samplings of promising midseason drama Resurrection. Beginning on April 15, the network will launch season 3 of Celebrity Wife Swap.
Christian Slater's 'Mind Games' Is No More
In fairness, Mind Games wasn't very good and the writing was on the wall since it debuted to a 1.1 demo rating two days after the Oscar telecast - when the show was promoted. It dived to a horrendous 0.6 in its second week and matched that rating again on Tuesday. It's the third ABC show to be cancelled in the Tuesday 10pm timeslot, following Lucky 7 and Killer Women.

Three geeky best friends named Hung, Eric and Joe set out on an adventure of a lifetime to engage in some sword and sorcery style role play. They join a vast group of other LARPers (Live Action Role Players) in a woodland area they name the Fields of Evermore to carry out their dungeons and dragons-esque quest, but when one of them decides to practise a dark spell from an old book, they find themselves facing a genuine paranormal threat. He unwittingly manages to summon a flesh-eating succubus from hell who sets out on a murderous rampage to pick off each role player one by one. Not knowledgeable of demonic menaces of the real kind, the friends must band together to work out how to send the succubus back to its fiery inferno - before it's too late.

In telling this remarkable true story, director Jean-Marc Vallee (The Young Victoria) and his gifted cast keep the characters and events so grounded that we can't help but get caught up in their story. The film never asks for our sympathy, but it earns it over and over again as it explores a disgraceful period in American history when businesses and the government essentially condemned millions to death by withholding proper treatment for HIV and Aids.
It begins in 1985, when homophobic womaniser Ron Woodroof (McConaughey) is told that he has just a month to live. Refusing to believe that he has the same disease that has just killed Rock Hudson, he ignores his doctors (Garner and O'Hare) to find his own supply of AZT, which makes him even more ill. So he heads to Mexico to find a range of treatment the US government has refused to approve, and he imports them himself, creating a members' club to subvert the law. This requires that he set his deep-seated prejudice aside so he can work with the transgendered Rayon (Leto). But a government lawyer (O'Neill) is determined to shut him down.
Yes, it's deeply infuriating to watch the American system try so hard to stop Woodruff from saving lives. Government officials continually outlaw his effective treatments so they can pawn off the toxic, over-priced AZT instead. So Woodruff travels the world in search of new medicine, and his business of course takes off. Vallee cleverly cuts through the 1980s period details to reveal Woodruff's earthy tenacity and an overpowering sense of humanity.

Hung, Eric and Joe are best friends totally into sword and sorcery style role play and re-enactment. However, when they set out on an average sword-battling adventure with their fellow LARPers (Live Action Role Players) in some nearby woodland, a mysterious force overtakes the group and they find themselves facing a genuine paranormal threat when an 'imaginary' spell from an old book somehow conjures up a real murderous hell demon who begins to pick off players one by one.
