User Reviews

Quality movie with a silly premise.
22 October 2019 | by sinnfenianSee all my reviews

You have to know a horror movie based on a teenage sleepover game has to be viewed with the right frame of mind. Those expecting the tense seriousness of Se7en are going to be disappointed. But viewed in the right light, this movie is actually not too bad.

The basic premise is a group of friends are lured to an old church where a guy they just met suggests they play the game. This traps them into a neverending game of Truth or Dare in which the stakes seem to get higher and higher. The group slowly gets picked off while our main characters try to solve this puzzle.

One of the things that I really enjoyed about this movie was the depth of character. There wasnt a load of backstories, but there was enough to flesh these kids out so they were more than butcher meat. You find out pretty fast that Markeys dad committed suicide but the cause of that isnt revealed till much later and it is done in a way that piques the watchers interest. If I had to pic my main negative, it would be the droopy faced snapchat filter that appears over the faces of the people the demon temporarily possesses. I felt this was kind of lazy. It would have been better if they glossed their eyes black or something.

Overall, not a bad movie. I found myself not wanting to walk away towards the end because I wanted to see how it wrapped up.
