Watch It Now
This restrained exercise in torture porn benefits from its clever concept and restrained execution.
Director David Guy Levy's witless homage to the "Saw" franchise and its ilk.
With a bit less grisliness, it could have been a mystery dinner-theater performance.
I like the fact that Would You Rather has no stumbling zombies, werewolves with pecs or romantic vampires. The monsters are real people.
Jeffrey Combs is pretty much the reason to see this (or just about any) film.
A humdinger of a picture at times, guaranteed to rile up even the most jaded viewer, while presenting an interesting, if incomplete, portrait of human nature as it's faced with a cold reality of choice and survival.
February or not, "Would You Rather" is an instant contender for feel-bad movie of the year, but please do not read this as a criticism.
Would You Rather may start out like "the dinner party from hell," but becomes tastier and more tantalizing with every course.
A novel little combination of a few horror sub-genres that generally don't hook up very often.
A lean, mean chillride that exercises your brain and your nerves at the same time.
This ultra-nasty conceit should satisfy many a genre fan's inner sadist.
A shrill Indiewood torture porn that, despite promised shocks and revulsions, doesn't even have the conviction to hold its camera on the story's most appalling twists.
