Summary:

Olivia Barron, her best friend Markie Cameron, Markie’s boyfriend Lucas Moreno, along with Penelope Amari and her boyfriend Tyson Curran, and Brad Chang go on a trip to Rosarito, Mexico. In Mexico, Olivia runs into fellow student Ronnie who proceeds to harass her until a man intervenes on her behalf. The man introduces himself as Carter and eventually convinces her and her friends to join him for drinks at the ruins of a mission. There, Carter initiates a game of Truth or Dare with Olivia and her friends, plus Ronnie, who followed the group. Eventually, the game ends when Carter reveals that he deceived Olivia as a means of tricking her and her friends to the mission to offer them in his place in the supernatural game of Truth or Dare. As Carter leaves, he explains to Olivia that the game will follow them and they must not refuse it..

Review: 4 Stars

Truth Or Dare was a film that I have wanted to see ever since I saw the first trailer for it. I love Lucy Hale and the Snapchat smiles that characters got when asking ‘Truth or dare?’ looked creepy. I loved the idea of a horror twist on the sleepover game truth or dare. I am glad to say that the movie was actually better than I expected. Although it wasn’t that scary, I thought it was pretty brilliant.

Plot

The plot was pretty awesome. It was filled with suspense. As the game took turns with each character I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the next turn to be taken. There were a few well timed and unexpected twists thrown in. While I didn’t find the movie that scary, I loved the plot. The reason behind the game and why the group was forced to play it was a little lame, but I loved the actual game.

Acting

The acting was great all around. Obviously as a fan of Lucy Hale I think she was great as the lead, but I also think that the supporting cast did great. The script was written really well too, which helped bring the movie all together. There were a few awesome one liners in the film that were delivered perfectly.

Overall

The truth or dare game seemed designed to tear friendships apart by exploiting weaknesses and secrets, but also to cause chaos, all of this made for a knockout film. I loved that the game wouldn’t let the players pick truth every time, because it made for a really interesting game. Although I hated the scene that explained the reason why they were forced to play the game, the actual game made for an intense story line. The ending was absolutely brilliant as well. Truth Or Dare is a movie that you won’t want to miss.

    1. It was pretty entertaining. I really liked the ending. Wasn’t super scary and I didn’t really like the reason behind the game, but I really liked the rest of it. Did you wind up watching it yet? If so, what did you think?

      1. I have not, but we’re under a couple of feet of snow here in NNE at the moment and we’re devising a movie playlist for the afternoon and evening. Truth or Dare is on there.
        Snow = movies + books in this household. πŸ™‚

      2. Northern New England (NH). There’s a Patriots game keeping most of the neighbors occupied, but we chose 22 Jump Street, Halloween (2018) and Truth or Dare.
        Also getting a little writing done in between rounds of cocoa and shoveling. Gotta love a snow day!

      3. Oh, I can enjoy the Jump Street movies, but my true love is horror. My list is getting long, there’s a lot of good stuff out now.

        We got sidetracked yet again from my horror list by getting ensnared by “Origin”, a great show I have to admit.

      4. Origin huh, never heard of it actually!

        I love horror too. But I read a lot obviously, so I don’t watch too many movies, but now I have a lot of ways to watch them. I have Vudu, Netflix, Direct TV genie DVR with all the movie channels which means I have HBO Go too! I am trying to catch up on Game of Thrones!

      5. Netflix limited series very loosely based on the novel by Shirley Jackson, it’s excellent.
        And I know what you mean. I almost typed “House on Haunted Hill” up there by accident.
