JapaneseMovieFilter: I caught 20 minutes of (what I believe to be) a Japanese movie one night on public access television. The show abruptly ended without giving any details. [more inside]

I will be honest here and also say that I was drunk at the time so my memory of details is sketchy. Here is what I remember:
A militant guy is in a caged room with a group of twenty or more teenagers. There are guards presents and the children appear to be held captive. The militant guy is standing at a chalkboard. He starts listing off countries. The only common thread is that they appeared to be countries where America has had military involvement. Then he divides the kids up between boys and girls and starts pairing them for some kind of game. One kid refuses and the militant guy kills him. Then, as a penalty, he kills the girl who would have been this kid's partner. Militant guy then tells them that if their partner dies during the game then they die as well. Anyway, that's all I can remember.
