I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this movie or not and passed on watching it a couple of times. I was worried it was going to be cheesy or over the top gory.
I was surprised to find it was neither of those things.
Some of the supporting characters acting was a little flat but overall I was drawn into the movie. It thankfully wasn’t gory like Saw. It was more a type of shock value gore and implication of the violence. This movie focused on the suspense and what would you do mental torture aspect of the movie.
I’m not reviewing to share spoilers but for those looking to know what the movie is about:
A group of kids celebrate their senior college spring break in Mexico. On their last day there, they meet a guy who asks them to play a game of Truth or Dare, locking them in to a cycle of terror when they realize once asked, they have to play – no matter what. The truths get more revealing. The dares more deadly.
Was this a blockbuster hit? No. Did it hold my attention? Yes. I was creeped out by how the characters were asked Truth or Dare. I liked how Marki (?) was pretty tough regarding the reality of what they had been tricked in to. The female actresses dominated the movie and that was pretty cool to watch.
Conclusion: Watch it….if you dare….
