Truth or Die 2012 Truth or Die : This is a British movie about a group of teens who while at a party, play a game of 'Truth or Dare', but the game gets out of hand when one of the party goers Felix is picked on by the other teens. This movie definitely had some more potential, though budget reasons probably also held the movie back from ever truly going all out on things and make this a truly great movie. That disappointed me a bit. Look out for this girl, because I bet she will be huge in a few years. However, I must say there are some twists in the story that leaves you shocked.
So I give this film a 7 out of 10. This is a revenge flick that definitely goes that extra mile to focus on the back story as much as the torture of the participants. Jennie Jacques as Eleanor was superb, and rest of the memorable performances include Liam Boyle as Paul Eleanor's boyfriend , Florence Hall as Emma Eleanor's pal and David Oakes as Justin the psychotic brother of Felix. Director Nick Simon knows how to trigger viewers to watch with their eyes-through-their-fingers, and let's just say novices to the genre are going to have a rough time in the final bloody reel. Overall, it was suspenseful, yet a few illogical inconsistencies require a fair amount of willing suspension of disbelief.
They arrive to find that Felix's brother is there instead, but where is Felix, and what does his brother have in store? The acting of the kids young adults, whatever was surprisingly good but part of me thinks they were just being themselves, not acting which is fine. This is essentially a 'one room' thriller which keeps you guessing as to the fates of the central characters and indeed has you on the edge of your seat throughout. A very slick and professional film considering the budget. People who will watch it will already have certain expectations of it and are more or less taking for granted already that this isn't going to be a movie with the most tight or most clever script to it. That disappointed me a bit. It all starts with a party held at the end of the school term with a young man named Felix. The movie had a couple of surprises and there was a bit of a plot twist near the end.
The scares are minimal as this is much more psychological thriller in nature. The character had many depths and levels, and as he unwound it was interesting, and surprisingly believable, and credible. Watching him in modern avatar was a surprise and I have to say he did a good job. The movie also does still make some strange decisions with its story. So despite a few plot holes that I found easy to overlook, I was quite content with this viewing experience. However, I must say there are some twists in the story that leaves you shocked.
Verdict: I still like it because it rivets. The plot starts to unravel near the end like 90% of horrors but keeps it together enough not to spoil it. The creativity level was high enough to engage you but not enough to suck you in, as the story unfolds in a more casual way. This is a British movie about a group of teens who while at a party, play a game of 'Truth or Dare', but the game gets out of hand when one of the party goers Felix is picked on by the other teens. We have different uses for words. A small group of young adults all gather at what they believe to be the party of a mutual 'friend', the same boy who was humiliated years earlier.
As in most horror movies these days, the male dominant bad guy tends to get real clumsy and forgets how to fight considering he was military, this seems a bit strange but doesn't deter much from the film. When they arrive they find that he isn't there, but his brother suggests that they all party regardless. I felt the story was well told. Along with their similarly well-drawn friends, they get dragged into playing a game of Truth or Dare inside a creepy chapel by a handsome stranger who reveals to them that he only took them there to save himself. The cast is simple perfect which makes it more fun to actually enjoy it. Technically this movie is a train wreck, but creatively this movie is outstanding. Although the events are foreseeable and often even downright obvious, director Robert Heath still manages to generate a handful of suspenseful moments.
The story is simple, a university party, which entailed a game of Truth or Dare ended in a bust up, and the result meant revenge was needed. Having a small cast I found 3 outstanding young Actors, who I shall definitely be looking for in the future. I think that one of the biggest praises in this film has to go to the actors. But besides the basics there is one con that actually hindered my viewing experience, and that would be. Allegedly Felix committed suicide, and since Justin established that this quintet is directly responsible for his act of desperation, he's destined to extract vengeance and restore the family honor! But the subtle twists in this movie make it stand out especially towards the end. There is a light surprise at the end which is why it got 4 stars more than 2 as I wanted give but not a good enough surprise to make up for sitting through that drivel. This is bad because it made the characters flat, and in a horror film no character ever should be flat.
Her character was a well rounded, sexy, bitchy, and yet incredible to watch. Even the obligatory spinning of the bottle has a certain beauty about it. I thought I was in for yet another in the endless parade of heavily clichéd boring little teen- scream flicks, but I found myself pleasantly surprised when I found a reasonably well- acted tense little yarn that had loftier goals than the average brain-dead teen slashes genre could usually muster. The majority of the shooting is stylish, well lit and well composed. But saying that i really enjoyed this film.
At least the story doesn't ever turn this movie into a bad one to watch. Twists and turns aplenty on a roller-coaster ride to find out who sent it. So despite a few plot holes that I found easy to overlook, I was quite content with this viewing experience. But when they get there they are told the party is in a cabin further up the road. This is a British movie about a group of teens who while at a party, play a game of 'Truth or Dare. But when they get there they are told the party is in a cabin further up the road. It's being definitely a better movie to watch than just the average and formulaic Hollywood attempt! I had high expectations for this and of course i was disappointed.
Surely we all love to remember those typically clichéd and nasty slashers in which the geekiest kid in school, preferably on prom night or during any random party night, is publicly humiliated or even killed during a banal prank that horribly runs out of hand. They arrive to find that Felix's brother is there instead, but where is Felix, and what does his brother have in store? They arrive to find that Felix's brother is there instead, but where is Felix, and what does his brother have in store? A few months later they are all invited to a party that Felix is throwing at his parents mansion. When players attempt to refuse the increasingly challenging tasks, they're met with deadly consequences, quickly discovering: you must do the dare, or the dare does you. As an independent British movie, I think it does a great job in creating a brutal psychological suspense thriller. The storyline was original, yes but the way the killings were executed and the twist at the ending didn't even help boost my interest. The film premiered on on October 8, 2017 and was met to generally positive reviews.
