Truth or Die (2012)★★★☆☆
I liked this one. Probably more than I should have. I almost rated it at 4 out of 5, but stopped when I realized I really just liked that everyone was so British. I am almost certain that I wouldn’t have liked this movie as much with an American cast.
But they were British, so I think this is a great movie. Okay, accents aside, the cast was pretty good. They were all believable (and British), and I liked that the group had chemistry (and British accents).
The story, on the other hand, went from silly to ridiculous. While the movie was paced reasonably well and didn’t drag on at any point, the story kept getting less and less believable.
And you know how I feel about characters who bring things on themselves. I wouldn’t say these kids deserved everything they got, but come on…who goes to a party in the middle of nowhere for a kid they bullied? Idiots, that’s who.
There are some pretty disturbing and gruesome scenes in the movie and it’s definitely got a good creepy vibe throughout, but it’s not that scary and it gets a bit over the top towards the end. Overall it’s an okay watch for a rainy night at home.
