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 Voice: Horror fans trust Blumhouse, so why waste the brand on a flick as lame as Truth or Dare?
Vulture: Everything here…feels slotted into an existing template.
RogerEbert.com: The 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 Chronicle: Expect this film to be followed by “Blumhouse’s Spin the Bottle” and “Blumhouse’s Boggle.”
London Evening Standard: It’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.
Empire: The 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 Lies: Though the film provides none of the thrills expected, it is undeniably amusing – if only in an absurd, utterly mind-boggling way.
SciFiNow: If 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:

Truth or Dare was an over-glorified statement about how party culture sucks which I back but the movie I don’t.

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