Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018)


Critic Consensus: Truth or Dare's slick presentation isn't enough to make this mediocre horror outing much more frightening than an average round of the real-life game.

Those brief bits of digitally inserted spookiness are the only glints of interest in a plot that otherwise makes more Mexican border crossings (it's where the game starts) than an alarmist Trump speech.

Horror fans trust Blumhouse, so why waste the brand on a flick as lame as Truth or Dare?

Everything here...feels slotted into an existing template.

The Showgirls of post-Scream slasher movies: it's not campy nor emotionally involving enough to be more than the sum of its ungainly parts.

A low-budget kids-gruesomely-dying romp that is decidedly same-old.

"Truth or Dare" is foolish to the point of incoherence. Don't get played.

Audience Reviews for Blumhouse's Truth or Dare


Blumhouse is a mixed bag of films, Truth or Dare is definitely on the bottom tier. The film never feels complete, you have that feeling the production was rushed on the concept alone, very common in this Capitalism world, executives meeting deadlines for bonuses. The biggest issue with the film is the depth of the characters and the villain, never receives a true explanation. The ending is baited for sequels, which I hope never see the light of day. Blumhouse had an impressive 2017 but 2018 has been quite shaky to say the least. I can't recommend this film, I thought it might have that Sinister or Insidious appeal but there is nothing here. Some of the character motivations are dull and the film is over without any real explanation. The filmmakers clearly hinged everything on the concept, it was playful but will never have that so bad it's fun vibe. This is a film that will vanish after viewing, just one of those poorly created horror films. 10/07/2018.

The sixth Final Destination movie I didn't really know I wanted. It's pure teen horror trash, but it's of the highest order of that genre and will forever remain a staple of the age in which it was born thanks to that ending. Something we don't get often enough these days when horror is often times more of an homage.
