Brutal, Shocking and damn right offensive...
29 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Jessica Cameron's TRUTH OR DARE comes with it an incredible reputation after receiving critical praise at the various festivals that it has played at. It has won many awards including Best of Fest Award at Shockfest Film Festival where Cameron picked up the prize for Best Director and Best Actress. So before I watched the film I was asking myself if the hype justified?

Truth or Dare follows six colleague students who go under the name of the Truth or Daredevils on YouTube. After their video featuring a game of Russian roulette goes viral after one of their team is seemingly killed, it is announced on a talk show that it was a hoax. As the group talk about their next video a disgruntled fan in the audience tries to interact with the team but is quickly shunned away only to appear later at the groups shoot taking control and forcing the team to play their very last game of Truth or Dare.

Despite its micro budget what we have here is a thriller that works well and one that goes to some incredibly dark places. Brutal, shocking and damn right offensive, Jessica Cameron's Truth or Dare pushes the boundaries of acceptability. Its direct mean-spirited approach reminded me of James Cullen Bressick's Hate Crime which is also one of the most disturbing films i've ever seen. Featuring some truly twisted dares and it has enough gore to make Hostel look like a Saturday morning TV show.

As Director Cameron spares nothing and no one as she crafts a thriller that accelerates in ferocity leaving her audience speechless. As for performances Jessica herself steps in to play one of the leads and is joined by Ryan Kiser, Heather Dorff and Devanny Pinn. The entire cast do a great job to sell the reality of the film without going over the top or feeling forced.

Overall, I liked Truth or Dare and despite its budgetary restrictions, I think Cameron did a great job as director. So if the secrets shared during the FIlm4 Frightfest Q&A after the film turn out to be true then it won't be long before Truth or Dare 2 goes into production.
