Truth or Dare Movie 2018

Film & Television

Critics And Audiences Both Really Hated ‘Truth or Dare’

Truth or Dare was released this weekend, and many horror fans were actually pretty excited about the movie. Blumhouse has a solid reputation for quality films as of late, so it seemed like a no brainer that this one would at least be entertaining. That’s actually apparently not the case, as the film currently sits at an 11% on Rotten Tomatoes at the time of writing this article.

Here’s what the top critics had to say about the film:

Village VoiceHorror fans trust Blumhouse, so why waste the brand on a flick as lame as Truth or Dare?

VultureEverything here…feels slotted into an existing template.

RogerEbert.comThe Showgirls of post-Scream slasher movies: it’s not campy nor emotionally involving enough to be more than the sum of its ungainly parts.

San Francisco ChronicleExpect this film to be followed by “Blumhouse’s Spin the Bottle” and “Blumhouse’s Boggle.”

London Evening StandardIt’s mostly pants, with a haunted church that must have cost about $5 to assemble and a stinky performance from Teen Wolf cutie Tyler Posey.

EmpireThe truth is, it’s not very good – and entirely without scares. But we dare you to watch it without unleashing a few unintended laughs along the way.

Little White LiesThough the film provides none of the thrills expected, it is undeniably amusing – if only in an absurd, utterly mind-boggling way.

SciFiNowIf you’re looking for a disposable teen horror, Truth Or Dare could be the Friday night nonsense you’re looking for, but you can absolutely do better.

Twitter wasn’t kind either:

So it looks like if you’re in the mood for some horror – watch A Quiet Place instead.
