“Truth or Dare” is by Blumhouse Studios and director Jeff Wadlow. The movie that had a budget of 3.5 million, is rated PG-13, and stared Lucy Hale, an actress in the popular show “Pretty Little Liars.”
Like any good and enjoyable horror or thriller movie, Truth Or Dare has a simple premise, simple rules, and a group of people who must do their best to survive it all. The movie had all the right boxes ticked.
The movie is about a group of college students who go on a spring break trip to Mexico where they meet a guy who takes them to a creepy old church to play a game of truth or dare.
What they don’t know is that a demon has hijacked their game and uses their friends, family and strangers to dare them.
The rules are easy to follow: Tell the truth or die, do the dare or die, and play the game or die.
It was so much fun watching the main characters and the game trying to outsmart each other, and how fast the group of friends figured things out, is really amazing.
It did not take them long to start using common sense, Google, and Facebook to help solve their problem. Nevertheless, the group still made some silly decisions till the end.
Although Olivia (Lucy Hale) was the main protagonist, it was Markie (Violett Beane) who took the brunt of the curse’s emotional abuse. She was so constantly the emotional victim of the game, that it was laugh out loud funny.
Truth Or Dare is the perfect movie to mock while watching (a la Mystery Science Theatre 3000) with a bunch of like-minded friends, and it is enjoyable too.
If you’re going to see a scary movie, you actually want to see a scary movie, and you will not be disappointed when you see this. The casting was done well and the actors did a great job.
Finally, the monster. All horror movies have a monster and making it a scary one is the key. Although this monster showed itself through other people, it was creepy and not forgettable. – The Little Hawk
