I've said it before but I'll say it again, I am not a big fan of scary movies.  I get particularly scared by ones involving demons or the paranormal - I can handle serial killers all day long, but ghosts and possessions and the like terrify me.  All that to say, this is not a movie I would have seen without MoviePass or our commitment to see every movie that comes to our theater. 

Truth or Dare is the story of a group of friends who go to Mexico for spring break their senior year.  While there they get tricked into playing a supernatural game of Truth or Dare that follows them home and has dire consequences in the real world.  The creep factor was pretty high for me, but I don't think I was ever actually scared.  The story was somewhat interesting.  I enjoyed watching the relationships get tested and change as the truths revealed long kept secrets.  I was intrigued as the friends tried to figure out exactly what was going on and how they could stop it. 

The movie wasn't as predictable as I expected, there were times that I was really surprised by a turn in the story.  I definitely had to watch some scenes through my fingers, because I kept expecting jump scares and there was more blood and gore than expected.  If you enjoy scary movies this one won't be topping your favorites list anytime soon, but it could worth seeing!
