Truth or Die Reviews
A British production it does have that gritty feel that only British cinema provides when compared to Hollywood.
Typical gory blood fest set pieces that edge on the Saw genre when it comes to 'games' set around a 'Truth or Dare' angle.
The screenplay is quite interesting and has potential to make a good film. Unfortunately the very low budget and some lacklustre acting performances put paid to anything above 2 stars.
Basically revenge, cruelty et al are explored as one would expect with such a screenplay.
The end does have a neat set piece.
With a higher budget a better film could have resulted instead of straight to Horror Channel on cable TV fodder.
Nerdy kid gets rejected, time passes and then suddenly a group of bullies get invited to Nerdy kids house for a party which isn't really a party because nobody is there except Nerdy kids creepy, intense brother. Yeah that doesn't seem like it's going to be dangerous or serial killerish at all!
So the group stays for some reason because they're weird and just like all teenager parties, they sat around and played truth or dare....boring. Of course everything goes awry when the dares become torturous and gross and disturbing. Screwed up enough that I lost interest in watching the rest, whoever wrote the script needs help
A group of high school friends used to play truth or dare together at parties. Things have changed since graduation, but they decide to all get together one last time in a cabin in the woods for some partying. However, one of the old friends has different plans for the night. The friends find themselves tied up in
chairs playing truth or dare like they never have before.

Robert Heath, director of Out on a Limb and Sus, delivers Truth or Die. The storyline for this picture is very average and a bit disappointing. The acting is below par even for the genre. The kill sequences are inconsistent.
"I just came for the free booze."
I came across this on Netflix and decided to add it to my wish list. I thought this was a lazy, corny, cheesy, campy horror flick. There isn't much to get excited about here and I would only recommend seeing this if you're diehard a fan of the genre.
"Truth or dare."
Well this was a strange concoction of the horror genre. The premise we start with is a party with alcohol, drugs, and sexual talk. Cliches of course, but whatever. We see this shy boy, as a next cliche, who likes one of the girls and obviously gets rejected.
One of the good things about the movie is also, strangely, one of the worst. The villain of the movie is pretty much the only good thing of the movie; and that's not saying much since the actors and actresses for this movie are questionable.
The action, what little there is, is slow and monotonous, the dialogue, not applying the fact that they are English, is sometimes silly, and the settings are just so bland and repetitive. A cabin in the woods. As if we haven't seen that in forever. Do all horny teenagers go party in the damned woods all the time?
The twist of the movie kind of saves it a bad from the worst possible score, but it doesn't help too much that even it falls flat on its track. I mean, it was a good set-up, more or less, and it wasn't taken by the horns.
I give it a 3 out of 10. (1.5 stars)
