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...
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Jeffrey Combs is pretty much the reason to see this (or just about any) film.
| Original Score: 4/5
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.
| Original Score: B+
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.
| Original Score: 3/4
Would You Rather may start out like "the dinner party from hell," but becomes tastier and more tantalizing with every course.
| Original Score: 7
A novel little combination of a few horror sub-genres that generally don't hook up very often.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
A lean, mean chillride that exercises your brain and your nerves at the same time.
| Original Score: 7.5/10
This restrained exercise in torture porn benefits from its clever concept and restrained execution.
This ultra-nasty conceit should satisfy many a genre fan's inner sadist.
I like the fact that Would You Rather has no stumbling zombies, werewolves with pecs or romantic vampires. The monsters are real people.
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.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
A Frankenstein abomination that mates Dinner for Schmucks with Saw.
| Original Score: 0.5/4
Hardly a most dangerous game night at the movies.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
A derivative horror movie with highfalutin pretensions.
| Original Score: 2/5
Director David Guy Levy's witless homage to the "Saw" franchise and its ilk.
| Original Score: 0/4
With a bit less grisliness, it could have been a mystery dinner-theater performance.
| Original Score: 1/5
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.
| Original Score: 1/4
Though Combs is clearly enjoying himself, the fun doesn't always carry over to the audience.
| Original Score: D
Would You Rather verges on genuine intrigue at times, but it's ultimately just a slasher without the gore ...
