Truth or Dare follows a doomed group known as “The Truth or Dare Devils”, friends and talented film-makers who've found success with viral videos depicting the troupe playing dangerous yet fake interpretations of the social game we all have played at one time or another. It is in their most recent filming of the popular internet based “reality” show, that one obsessed fan decides that not only should he be a part of the upcoming episode, but lend his own demented form of “realism” that he believes the show is lacking. The events that follow will prove to be eye-opening for those whom chose falsehood in the shadow of truth, and painful for those who thought “dare” was a welcomed friend.
I found most everything about Truth or Dare to be refreshing. The writing gave a thought provoking and easily malleable opinion of the characters and their development, whom go quickly from being adored to hated and vice-versa. It's nice to have a film where a protagonist's untimely death is not only welcomed, but enjoyable to watch. Something else that made the writing so powerful is that it placed the actors in some of the most challenging roles possible. One by one the on screen talent proves a prowess for the minimalistic and challenging emotions faced when you are essentially killed from the inside out. An actor can portray the pain of being stabbed, but a GOOD actor can show the pain of having your darkest secrets shared with the world. Everyone in this film went above and beyond to make such performances fluid.
In conclusion I'd like to extend a HUGE thank you to everyone involved with Truth or Dare, as you've all accomplished something I didn't think was possible.... Making THIS horror fanatic cringe on several occasions.
