Hardly a most dangerous game night at the movies.

This restrained exercise in torture porn benefits from its clever concept and restrained execution.

A derivative horror movie with highfalutin pretensions.

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.

Though Combs is clearly enjoying himself, the fun doesn't always carry over to the audience.

An ungainly horror film that tries to twist the genre in a new direction, but fails utterly. There are some truly horrific scenes, but nothing worth remembering afterwards.

An entertaining and incredibly demented commentary on how easily our wills can break when given the proper price tag.

It's a striking yet simple premise that is, for the most part, employed to watchable (if unspectacular) effect by director David Guy Levy...

A Frankenstein abomination that mates Dinner for Schmucks with Saw.

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.

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.

Audience Reviews for Would You Rather

Seems that I have seen this premise before, but this had a little bit of a twist to it. Other than that, not the most original of movies....
