2018 | DIR. JESS WADLOW | REVIEW BY GLENN COCHRANE.
For a moment I thought I was back in the 1980s, as a giggling teenager, watching a PG-13 horror movie. And yet I was watching it with an adult perspective, noting how bloody dumb it was. From one lame gag to another, I understood how idiotic it was… and I was having a good time. Cut to reality: the year is 2018 and I was watching Truth or Dare, the new teenage horror film from director Jeff Ludlow (Kick Ass 2, Never Back Down). It tells a cliché-riddled story of six friends spending their spring break in Mexico, where they play a hexed game of truth or dare and find themselves caught in a gnarly cycle of death with no option of passing. Should they choose truth, they must answer truthfully or die. Should they choose dare, they must complete the dare or die. Should they refuse their turn… yep, die! Die, Die, Die!
