Storyline

When Christian Turner gathers together his fiancée Elizabeth and their friends Adam, Benjamin, Piper and Katie to celebrate their high-school graduation, they play the cheeky card game 'taboo' which anonymously confides their secret vices to paper. The following year Christian inherits the grand estate and invites them back for New Year's Eve. This time the games are far more serious, but go way weirder then anyone planned, with several unexpected twists. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

[first lines]
Piper: [reading from a dictionary] "Taboo: A prohibition against touching, saying, or doing something for fear of immediate harm from a supernatural force." That's creepy. And, and I, I don't, I don't really get it.
Elizabeth: Well, the thing about taboos is that society shuns them. But if you really think about it, I mean, there's something very tempting about it. And the game will test whether or not we succumb to the taboo, whatever it might be.
Christian Turner: Such as?

I want my 80 minutes back!!!!!!!
25 March 2003 | by (texas) – See all my reviews

This is going in my top 5 worst movies of ALL time. The acting was horrible!!!!!!!!! What could have been played out as a naughty story line with good results, just wasn't!!!!! Nick Stahl needs to read through his scripts before he accepts the parts. He's such a gifted actor, so what happened to him in this movie, I have no clue. Everyone was acting like they were shot up with novocaine. The plot was so obvious from the get go that I can't believe I wasted 80 minutes to see what I already knew was going to happen (I must be into pain and suffering). Bottom line: I concur with the others, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.
