Storyline

Olivia Barron, her best friend Markie Cameron, Markie's boyfriend Lucas Moreno, along with Penelope Amari and her boyfriend Tyson Curran, and Brad Chang go on a trip to Rosarito, Mexico. In Mexico, Olivia runs into fellow student Ronnie who proceeds to harass her until a man intervenes on her behalf. The man introduces himself as Carter and eventually convinces her and her friends to join him for drinks at the ruins of a mission. There, Carter initiates a game of Truth or Dare with Olivia and her friends, plus Ronnie, who followed the group. Eventually, the game ends when Carter reveals that he deceived Olivia as a means of tricking her and her friends to the mission to offer them in his place in the supernatural game of Truth or Dare. As Carter leaves, he explains to Olivia that the game will follow them and they must not refuse it..

No joy in this curse
23 April 2018 | by justinwfirestoneSee all my reviews

It is, ahem, Blumhouse's Truth or Dare, not just any-old, plain-old Truth or Dare. It's not the sixth installment of the cult classic Truth or Dare? : A Critical Madness, even though it psychologically draws from the same wells. It's not anything to do with Madonna: Truth or Dare. It is its own self, although sex still kills, college kids love to drink a lot on Spring Break, and if there's a really mysterious curse that seems unstoppable, you can always find some kind of answers through clever Google queries, preferably using Apple products whenever possible.

Be a good friend and don't be a jerk, or else you are going to get far less screen time than your cohorts, and definitely no nooky. The game of Truth or Dare? is no fun when the truth hurts and the dares maim. In fact, that's the biggest problem with Blumhouse's Truth or Dare: it's not fun. Unlike Happy Death Day or The Strangers: Prey at Night, there's almost no self-awareness that this is a pretty bad idea for a movie, no joy in an insipid plot with senseless violence.

You can dare to speak the truth, and you can truthfully respond to a dare, but maybe fate is real and none of us really have any control over our lives, let alone anyone else's. Demons can be sealed in clay pots, but it often requires outwitting the demon and the demon will never forget anything, not even when black-out drunk in Mexico, or probably especially when black-out drunk in Mexico.

Spring Break can be a lot of fun, but it also poses many risks, and you should never trust the cute lonely guy at the bar because he's alone for a reason.
