Truth or Die Reviews
A group of high school friends used to play truth or dare together at parties. Things have changed since graduation, but they decide to all get together one last time in a cabin in the woods for some partying. However, one of the old friends has different plans for the night. The friends find themselves tied up in
chairs playing truth or dare like they never have before.
"He's obsessed with a fucking postcard."
Robert Heath, director of Out on a Limb and Sus, delivers Truth or Die. The storyline for this picture is very average and a bit disappointing. The acting is below par even for the genre. The kill sequences are inconsistent.
"I just came for the free booze."
I came across this on Netflix and decided to add it to my wish list. I thought this was a lazy, corny, cheesy, campy horror flick. There isn't much to get excited about here and I would only recommend seeing this if you're diehard a fan of the genre.
"Truth or dare."
Well this was a strange concoction of the horror genre. The premise we start with is a party with alcohol, drugs, and sexual talk. Cliches of course, but whatever. We see this shy boy, as a next cliche, who likes one of the girls and obviously gets rejected.
One of the good things about the movie is also, strangely, one of the worst. The villain of the movie is pretty much the only good thing of the movie; and that's not saying much since the actors and actresses for this movie are questionable.
The action, what little there is, is slow and monotonous, the dialogue, not applying the fact that they are English, is sometimes silly, and the settings are just so bland and repetitive. A cabin in the woods. As if we haven't seen that in forever. Do all horny teenagers go party in the damned woods all the time?
The twist of the movie kind of saves it a bad from the worst possible score, but it doesn't help too much that even it falls flat on its track. I mean, it was a good set-up, more or less, and it wasn't taken by the horns.
I give it a 3 out of 10. (1.5 stars)
