This is a British movie about a group of teens who while at a party, play a game of 'Truth or Dare', but the game gets out of hand when one of the party goers (Felix) is picked on by the other teens. A few months later they are all invited to a party that Felix is throwing at his parents mansion. But when they get there they are told the party is in a cabin further up the road. They arrive to find that Felix's brother is there instead, but where is Felix, and what does his brother have in store?Written by

Hmm....this is good! I expected this to be yet another run of the mill revenge story but it indeed went beyond that.
It's the story with the surprising bends(especially towards the climax) that makes the movie very watchable. The direction could have been better though.
Performances, gladly, was top notch from all - another reason why almost all the scenes grab our attention. Jennie Jacques as Eleanor was superb, and rest of the memorable performances include Liam Boyle as Paul(Eleanor's boyfriend), Florence Hall as Emma(Eleanor's pal) and David Oakes as Justin(the psychotic brother of Felix).
Although I like the story in general, it could have been more convincing in some places. Justin is a trained British solider but there are moments where he acts clumsy while defending himself against some of the characters who are just ordinary folks. That disappointed me a bit. However, I must say there are some twists in the story that leaves you shocked. It just dares to be different, viewer liking be damned. Lol!
Verdict: I still like it because it rivets. Makes for an engaging movie experience.
