Truth or Dare

Truth or Dare

Beautiful teens on spring break in Mexico are lured into a cursed game of truth or dare that follows them home, with dire results. The mechanics of all this are a little flimsy—the game challenges come from other characters, momentarily possessed, whose features twist into a waspish grin—but the folks at Blumhouse Productions (Insidious, Paranormal Activity) know that their patrons will buy into any dumb idea for the sake of a good scare. Sadly, there aren't any here, though there's a lot of soap opera among the horny teens as they choose "truth" and their secrets come tumbling out; choosing "dare," they die in fairly routine accidents that make you long for the slapstick ingenuity of the Final Destination franchise, still a high-water mark in teen-elimination films. Jeff Wadlow directed; with Lucy Hale and Violett Beane.
