‘Truth or Dare’ Film Review: Blumhouse College Horror Doesn’t Make the Grade

  • The Wrap
‘Truth or Dare’ Film Review: Blumhouse College Horror Doesn’t Make the Grade
The title of this horror movie on-screen is officially “Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare,” maybe to differentiate it from, say, “Madonna: Truth or Dare” or some other film based around this game, which may still be popular among more repressed high school and college students. Anyone who played truth or dare as a teenager will know that it usually ends badly, but not quite as badly or ludicrously as it does here.

The concept in this horror movie “Truth or Dare” is that the game itself is somehow possessed by a demon, and this means that, whenever a participant is possessed by said demon, they are forced to make the face that Karen Black makes at the end of the cult TV movie “Trilogy of Terror.” Black pulled that face just once at the end of the Zuni doll segment, but the unfortunate cast of “Truth or Dare” is forced to make it continually throughout the film, often with laughable results, even when it is accompanied (as it sometimes is) by red demon eyes.

Truth or Dare” begins with a battered-looking woman who grimaces into that Karen Black mug before lighting another woman on fire. We then meet the main characters of the film, young people who are all going down to Mexico for spring break. Director Jeff Wadlow (“Kick-Ass 2”) indulges in some split-screen effects under the credits to show us their progress and their drunken, obnoxious spring break revels. If the intention was to make us hate them and want to see them suffer, mission accomplished.

Watch Video: 'Truth or Dare' Trailer: Watch Lucy Hale and Tyler Posey Play Deadly Game

Olivia (Lucy Hale) is a petite brunette moralist, and her best friend Markie (Violett Beane, “The Flash”) is a blonde who is in mourning for her father, who recently committed suicide. Penelope (Sophia Ali, “Grey’s Anatomy”) has a drinking problem, and her boyfriend Tyson (Nolan Gerard Funk, “The Canyons”) is a medical student who sells prescriptions of Adderall and other drugs to fellow students. Lucas (Tyler Posey) is Markie’s boyfriend, and Brad (Hayden Szeto, “The Edge of Seventeen”) is a gay guy who is closeted to his family. Rounding out the cast is Ronnie (Sam Lerner, “The Goldbergs”), who acts aggressive to compensate for his feelings of inadequacy.

All of them are roped into playing a game of truth or dare by Carter (Landon Liboiron, “Frontier”), and the results are as expected, at first. Ronnie is made to give Tyson a lap dance, and Brad admits that he wouldn’t mind making out with Carter, but “Truth or Dare” is squeamish when it comes to sex or nudity. When Lucas is made to get naked, he runs around in the dark in such a way that we barely see any of his body.

Also Read: 'Rampage' Stomps Into Theaters in Need of Big Overseas Launch

The editing here by Sean Albertson (“Warrior”) is expert and fast and helps to move this enterprise along, but it can be a little abrupt, as when Brad moves in to kiss a guy during spring break, and the camera cuts away as soon as it can. (Does this count as some kind of progress in depicting a same-sex kiss of any kind in a studio movie?)

There is a very suspenseful and well-shot sequence where Penelope is walking along the edge of a roof of a house while drinking, and Olivia and her friends have to try to save her, but Wadlow falters whenever he has to rely on Google searches and Facebook clicking to give us plot exposition. You can’t avoid texting and online searching in movies now because that’s the way we live our lives, but no one has been able to make this cinematically exciting yet, unfortunately.

Also Read: Kevin Bacon, David Koepp to Team Up for Blumhouse's 'You Should Have Left'

The premise of “Truth or Dare” is needlessly convoluted, and it is overloaded with information and side characters. By the time Olivia is driving down to Mexico to meet a deus ex machina nun named Sister Inez (Vera Taylor) to solve the mystery of why they have been possessed by this game, “Truth or Dare” has entered pretty absurd territory.

‘Suicide Squad’: David Ayer Reveals How the Joker Almost Became ‘King of Gotham’ in Cut Scene

‘Suicide Squad’: David Ayer Reveals How the Joker Almost Became ‘King of Gotham’ in Cut Scene
Suicide Squad” is not a good movie, but it is one that continues to provoke discussion among fans — much of it about what could have been. David Ayer, who directed the critically panned (but financially successful) comic-book movie, has added to the post-mortem by describing a scene revolving around the Joker that never made it into the final film.

“After Joker dropped HQ [Harley Quinn] from the help and crashed, Enchantress made a deal with him,” Ayer revealed on Twitter. “He was going to take Harley home and be ‘King of Gotham’ Harley stood up to him and refused to betray her new friends. The Squad turned on him and he escaped.”

He added, “That was her arc. Growth and empowerment.”

Jared Leto played the Joker in the film, though his role was less substantial than fans (and the actor himself) were expecting. David Ayer followed up “Suicide Squad” with the Netflix movie “Bright,

Film Review: ‘Gringo’

Film Review: ‘Gringo’
It’s a good thing Joel Edgerton and Charlize Theron are such likable actors to watch on screen, because the characters they play in “Gringo” are downright despicable. That’s the point in this nasty piece of work, which interrupts its darkly comic, south-of-the-border satire — rendered in the outrageous, ultra-colorful style of such Elmore Leonard adaptations as “Get Shorty” and “Jackie Brown” — long enough to ask the provocative question whether Mexico might do better building a wall that keeps Americans out.

As directed by brother Nash Edgerton (helming his second feature, after 2008’s “The Square”), Joel plays Richard Rusk, the sleazy co-founder of a Chicago-based pharmaceutical company called Promethium, first seen zipping up his pants following a mid-afternoon tryst with insatiable colleague Elaine (Theron, clearly relishing the part’s vampy potential). Richard and Elaine are running a scheme that involves mass-producing a chill pill called Cannabax at a facility in Mexico,

‘Seven Seconds’: Clare-Hope Ashitey on a Potential Season 2 and Getting Inspiration From Paul Newman
The 2018 version of Paul Newman in “The Verdict” may be Clare-Hope Ashitey in the new Netlfix drama “Seven Seconds.” At the very least, it was an inspiration for director Gavin O’Connor (“Warrior”), who told the show’s star to watch the 1982 film in preparation for her role as Kj Harper. “It was interesting to look at a film that was about a flawed person and how they dealt with a situation,” she told IndieWire during a recent press event.

In the dense Netflix crime drama created by “The Killing’s” Veena Sud, the character of Kj definitely has no shortage of flaws as a prosecutor whose determination to get justice for a black teenager is held back by her struggles with alcoholism as well as the chaos that is the American legal system. It’s a complicated character that demands a complicated depiction: “If you are watching a fairy tale,

Suicide Squad 2 Cast Reunite for First Training Session
It looks the gang is getting back in shape and prepped for Suicide Squad 2. The sequel is shooting later this year, with the shoot expected to commence in October. But the actors in the movie need to spend some time getting in shape and Joel Kinnaman, along with some of his fellow Suicide Squad cast members are already getting back to work, as the actor revealed in a recent social media post.

Joel Kinnaman took to Instagram to reveal that he has been working out and training with fellow stars Jai Courtney and Jay Hernandez. They have a personal trainer on hand and are trying to get themselves looking ripped enough to pull off looking like actual comic book characters, not to mention the physical demands of filming a movie like Suicide Squad 2. According to the post, they worked so hard that Hernandez actually puked.

Chinese Blockbuster ‘Wolf Warrior 2’ Impacts Careers, Especially Star Celina Jade

Chinese Blockbuster ‘Wolf Warrior 2’ Impacts Careers, Especially Star Celina Jade
Record-breaking Chinese action film “Wolf Warrior 2” has changed the course of many company and individual careers — none more so than of its female lead Celina Jade, who turns out to be the film’s biggest champion.

While director Wu Jing’s 2015 “Wolf Warrior” was a big hit, making 545 million yuan ($82.4 million), little was expected of the sequel that was released in July 2017. The war/action film genre has been over-exploited in China, and the retread had little word of mouth.

While “WW2” benefited from a release date at the beginning of the summer blackout period in which only Chinese-language pictures can get a wide release, it was going head to head against Andrew Lau’s “The Founding of an Army.” “Army” is the third in a series of big-budget, new era Chinese propaganda movies that employ dozens of stars and get the full backing of the government machine.

Yet “WW2” was a phenomenon from the moment

Margot Robbie Is Planning Her Own Separate Harley Quinn Movie

Given the relatively lackluster reception, both critically and commercially to Justice League so far, the future of the Dceu is very uncertain. But one thing is for sure: It's going to involve Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn one way or another. It's just been revealed that, in addition to the already revealed spin-offs, the actress is also working on a solo Harley Quinn movie. Here's what she had to say about it.

"I've been working on it for two years now. It's hard to kind of talk about it because all this stuff is under lock and key, but no I've been working on a separate spinoff Harley thing for a while now... [Not Sirens], it's a totally separate one. Yeah, there's a lot going on right now and I honestly don't think anyone knows what's gonna be the next thing to happen, but I think everyone's keen to get Harley back

Like not making The Joker the main villain of the movie.

Recently, a fan shared an image of a toy that features Jared Jeto's Joker in a Batsuit on Twitter. According to Ayer, the toy was inspired by a pickup shot that was never used in a cut of the movie. In the reply to the tweet, a fan made it clear that The Joker should have been the main villain in Suicide Squad and, as it turns out, David Ayer agrees to the point that he agonizes over it.

Nick Nolte Reflects on What Acting’s Meant for Him Ahead of Walk of Fame Honor

Nick Nolte Reflects on What Acting’s Meant for Him Ahead of Walk of Fame Honor
Nick Nolte lives in a treehouse in Malibu. It’s an actual house. In a tree. A tree runs through the bedroom. He built it on the property he owns, a rustic 2.5-acre lot on which there are several small houses and an organic fruit and vegetable garden and dogs and cats running around. And every morning the first thing Nolte does when he wakes up is reach out and put his hand on the tree. And he feels the tree’s pulse. And he says to himself, “This is so cool. It’s alive.”

Nolte, who is receiving a star Nov. 20 on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, bought the property, within faint earshot of the Pacific Ocean, about 40 years ago, 10 years after he moved to L.A. to become a star. The semi-remote location (Kevin Dillon is a neighbor) is something that Nolte relishes; the fresh smell of dirt and grass, the cool shade

Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam Will Reportedly Show Up in Suicide Squad 2

According to The Wrap, Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam will make his big screen debut in Suicide Squad 2. That's not the movie that I would have expected him to show up in, but that news comes from two inside sources. The report says:

The insiders told TheWrap that the current plan for the sequel is for the members of Suicide Squad to be tasked with tracking down a weapon of mass destruction. That weapon? Black Adam himself. The villain is best known in DC Comics as the main nemesis of superhero Shazam.

That would certainly make for a fun and interesting story for the Suicide Squad! We know that Black Adam was not going to be a part of the Shazam! movie, but Johnson previously teased that there was going to be a big Black Adam surprise. He told Fandango:

“We have a really cool surprise for Black Adam that I can’t reveal,
