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

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?

How desperate for money was Amber Benson
29 June 2003 | by (boston) – See all my reviews

I rented this film just to see Amber Benson, though after reading the box I thought it sounded like a good story.....however the first problem was that there really wasn't a story...or actually there was a story but it made absolutely no sense. The second problem was there was no set up for these characters...yes I got that they all went to school together, but within the first 3 minutes of the film you realized they had nothing else in common and didn't like each other...so why did they keep getting together. Flaw number 3...the director though long pauses and tight camera shots equaled suspense (especially with the typical suspense music dubbed in)...he was sadly mistaken. It was painful to watch a terrific actress like Amber Benson waste time trying to bring this back to life....my only hope is the money she made here was put toward producing her own film.
