[Netflix] Movie Review: Truth or Dare


Truth or Dare is a 2017 American supernatural horror television film co-written by Thommy Hutson and Ethan Lawrence and directed by Nick Simon. The film stars Cassandra Scerbo, Brytni Sarpy, Mason Dye, Harvey Guillén, Alexxis Lemire, Luke Baines, Ricardo Hoyos, Christina Masterson, and Heather Langenkamp. The plot focuses on a group of eight college students who rent a house haunted by a vengeful spirit who lost a game of truth or dare several years earlier. The group decide to play the game and are forced to follow through or face deadly consequences. The film premiered on Syfy on October 8, 2017, and was met to generally positive reviews. As of February 2019, the film has grossed $3,417 from DVD and Blu-ray sales.

Like Darkness Rising, this is another haunted house movie, but unlike that movie, this movie includes a very twisted game of Truth or Dare. And it is bloody. If you have to tell the truth and lie about it, you die. If you don’t complete a dare in the correct amount of time, you die. Well, you might die from doing the dare anyway since it’s just that kind of game.

Eight college kids unwillingly take on the challenge and by the end of the movie there are decidedly less college kids, but a pretty decent plot. It is a blood and gore movie, I’m not gonna lie, and say it’s almost bordering on a slasher movie, so be advised.
