It starts out generically if atmospherically enough – a group of young Americans boozin’ it up, a remote location, a foreboding revelation – and then Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare? is all broken bones and burning flesh and that bit with the nail and the forehead. Which, if you’re a horror fan, means you’re totally, totally in.
The elevator pitch is It Follows meets Final Destination, but let’s go to the official synopsis for the details:
“Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars) and Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf) lead the cast of Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare, a supernatural thriller from Blumhouse Productions (Happy Death Day, Get Out, Split). A harmless game of “Truth or Dare” among friends turns deadly when someone -or something- begins to punish those who tell a lie – or refuse the dare.
“Directed by Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2), the thriller co-stars Violett Beane, Nolan Gerard Funk, Hayden Szeto and Sophia Taylor Ali. The film was produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum and executive produced by Wadlow.”
Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare – and isn’t it interesting they’re including Blumhouse in the actual title now? – is in cinemas from May 3, 2018. Meanwhile, have a poster:
