Six friends, Jennifer (Jessica Cameron), her boyfriend Ray (Shelby Stehlin), his sister Courtney (Devanny Pinn), Courtney's boyfriend John (Jesse Wilson), Michelle (Heather Dorff) and her boyfriend Tony (Brandon Van Vliet), have banded together to produce a YouTube show called Truth or Dare that shows them doing rather daring stunts - but it's really more for the audience's thrill, they always have some sort of safety net are performers rather than actual daredevils - and are immensely popular with their audience of course. For their latest show, they decided to play a game of Russian roulette in a remote house where they can't be disturbed - which sounds like a stupid idea only if you don't know that the bullet they're using is actually a blank. But then John blows his brain away for real ...

Enter Derik (Ryan Kiser), who has been the gang's biggest fan - until he found out their tricks were all rigged. But now he has replaced the blank John just used on himself with a real one to bring authenticity back to their show, ties them all up, and forces them all to play an actual game of Truth or Dare with him - which he himself picking all the truths and dares, and punishing those breaking the rules. Of course, our heroes at first all think it's the easiest to choose truth - but Derik knows all their little secrets including incest, pedophilia and rape, and he's quick to cut those who try to hush up things.

Over all their confession, our little gang soon falls apart and finds it a safer bet to choose a dare - but here things get really ugly, as Derik forces them to cut themselves or each other up, play William Tell-like gamesb and the like. And our heroes start to fall like flies ...

 

Now this is definitely a film that gorehounds will like as it doesn't hold back in the blood'n'guts department one bit, featuring sliced off nipples, pulled out eyes, cut up testicles and the like aplenty without ever holding back with yet one more depravity - but at the same time, Truth or Dare is much more than a simplistic bloodbath, it's a rather poignant commentary on today's internet fame and "reality" shows alike where depravity often rules over everything else in a "get famous quick"-sort of way, and with each new atrocity in the movie the commentary gets more biting. At the same time though, Truth or Dare works as a tight horror thriller that really builds up tension along with letting the blood flow, and shows a predilection for the grotesque and macabre often absent from today's more slick genre fare. And of course, a strong ensemble cast doesn't hurt one bit either.

Not for the squeamish, but definitely worth a look for horror fans and not only those ...
