Taglines: The game plays you.
Blumhouse continues its creepy parade of deceptively simple and irresistible horror flicks. The latest? About a bunch of teens who get trapped in a contagious game of Truth or Dare. It’s called…Truth or Dare.
Like a lot of horror movies involving teens, it all starts on One Fateful Night, when a bunch of friends decide to play a game and Everything Goes Wrong. That game is the titular Truth or Dare match, only something else is playing—a weird, almost contagious, supernatural entity that can possess the participants and punishes them for lying or turning down dares. And by “punish,” we mean “gruesomely murder as it continues to haunt them long after the game is over, because the game is never over in a horror movie, silly.”
Truth or Dare (or Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare) is an upcoming American supernatural horror film directed by Jeff Wadlow and written by Wadlow, Michael Reisz, Jillian Jacobs and Chris Roach. It stars Lucy Hale, Tyler Posey, Violett Beane, Nolan Gerard Funk, Hayden Szeto, Sophia Ali, Sam Lerner and Landon Liboiron, and is based upon the eponymous game of the same name. Jason Blum serves as a producer through his Blumhouse Productions banner and Universal Pictures will distributing the film. The film is set to be released in theatres on April 13, 2018.
