A mentally-unstable man finds his slow side into insanity hastened when he walks in on his wife and his best friend having sex, and embarks on a vicious killing spree that culminates in a shocking act of brutality. Mike Strauber was never a picture of mental health to begin with, but after becoming the victim of the ultimate betrayal, his odd fixation with the game "Truth or Dare?" becomes an outright obsession. Now, anyone unfortunate enough to cross his path will be forced to play, and odds are it'll be the last thing they ever do.

[T]he cornball synthesizer score and hammy amateur performances will have thirtysomethings recalling fond, bygone viewings.

Audience Reviews for Truth or Dare?: A Critical Madness

Saw this back when it came out in the mid 80's. Must have watched it about 20 times that Summer, it was so bad it was great.

A true piece of garbage and an example of why films shoul never be made with video, this late slasher film is still kinda fun because of its utter insanity and some of its fun death scenes such as drive-by chainsawing. Horrible acting, atrocious cinematography, and a less than coherent plot make Truth or Dare? a film that is only worthy of being enjoyed as a hilarious piece of awful filmmaking.

A horrible SOVT (shot on video tape) 1986 film about a husband who catches his wife and best friend in bed and then goes bezerk killing anyone who gets in his way or happens to be waiting for a bus. Huge gaps in continuity, a car inexplicably loaded with weapons, cheesy sound effects and a minimal, nonsensical plot make this a so-craptacular-its-good long as there is alot of alcohol consumed before watching it.
