Truth Or Dare 2018 Starring Lucy Hale
Olivia and her friends are partying in Mexico when they meet a mysterious stranger who brings them to a creepy basement to play a game of truth or dare.
As you do.
It all starts out innocently enough, someone streaks, girls make out, the usual. But things go horribly wrong when the host tells them that the game is real and they’re all in. The rules are simple, you do the dare, or you die You tell the truth, or you die. If you refuse – you guessed it – you die. What follows is a race against time as the friends try and escape the game before they all end up six feet under.
This was a fun movie. It’s in no way scary (the snapchat filter style faces are definitely creepy though), think more Final Destination than Ouija. Although Truth or Dare is a somewhat formulaic horror/thriller, I enjoyed the ending which is something I haven’t been able to say about a lot of slasher/horror/thrillers in recent years. The production is slick and high quality but it definitely suffers for lack of jump scares, or any kind of scare really.
The cast are strong overall, but Lucy Hale definitely proves she can branch out after PLL and I could definitely see her as a scream queen if this is the road she is heading down. The deaths are nothing we haven’t seen before and they really missed a chance to get creative and improve what sadly is a mediocre teen scream. Still, it’s a good midweek or rainy day movie to pass the time and I did enjoy it, if you do decide to give it a go I would love to know what you think!
