It's a dark, twisted, scary, suspenseful, gross, thriller of a movie!

Unexpected & Excellent .

Then things took an intense twist.

I am more of the whole play up the agony,and tragedy of the tale with something this over the top to make a real gripping experience.

Secondly some of the decisions these characters made are mind boggling, like I actually couldn't believe!

Now, many festivals and dozens of awards later, I was finally able to see this horror film at Immersed in Ink's Tinley Park Tattoo Arts & Horror Festival yesterday (4/19/14).

The movie takes this step and what may be cliché, turns it on its head, and takes off.

This is a terrible waste of anybodies time.

Occasionally, an indie movie gets the mainstream recognition it deserves and gives its stars their break, a la the Soskas and 'American Mary'; more frequently one is marketed well and gains a mainstream audience who then find it to be derivative and boring tosh and the whole indie movement is pushed back into financial hibernation once again.

Truth or Dare certainly possesses an original, imaginative and topical storyline based on the now popular style of Reality TV Shows which injected humour at unexpected moments which was immediately appreciated by the audience judging by the instant laughter generated who recognised the perfect timing by the actors delivering the lines.

Reviews are saying people left the screens over the gore, but in my case many left because they were bored.

the characters seemed so cliché at first until you slowly got to know them all.

These are exciting times in the world of scary movies in that women are making their mark in the genre as writers, producers and directors of horror films.

"Truth or Dare" once again proves that an emotionally engaging horror movie can be made on a low budget.

The first hr of the movie is semi-interesting; when the "killer" comes into play that's when it gets gory and a bit dull.

The acting was compelling throughout.

The scenes are intense and keep you on the edge of your seat.

It's a sad day in filmmaking when blood and guts makes me yawn.

True to form, Jessica offeres screams galore along with an intriguing plot line!!!

It becomes super dull and you're totally desensitized with 20 minutes left.

While I found the truth portions of this movie more entertaining than the dare portions, I have to say both portions left me entertained.

The problem is after a while, it just gets boring.

Still this is a low-budget indie horror and, as fans, we look past trite or wafer thin plotting to judge our chosen niche on its own merits.

They have a clear picture of the story they are telling and don't waste any time with gratuitous horror clichés.

Intense, non-stop horror--not for the faint of heart.

Intense and over the top and doesn't bear thinking about after, but when it's on it's good and gripping.
