Game Over: TRUTH OR DARE (2018) Review

A group of college friends go to Mexico for spring break where they are lured to an abandoned church and play a game of truth or dare. When they return home they realize something evil has come back with them and isn’t finished playing the game. Now they must play the game or die.

Truth or Dare is a PG-13 teen horror film that is exactly what you’d expect it to be. Silly teen drama, over-the-top, and plenty of clichés. However, despite this the movie is extremely fun from beginning to end. The events actually start up pretty quick and once the games begin it’s one truth or dare after the other. Some the dares are pretty thrilling, a rooftop scene was pretty intense, and the truths that are revealed tear the friends apart even in the dire circumstances. The laughs in the film didn’t work for me at all, and it goes to some pretty great lengths as far as revealing rules about the game and the origin of the spirit coming after them. On top of this it does have some plot holes, but to its credit it does put up a fight to try fill some of them up, even it doesn’t always work.

In terms of characters, some are pretty cardboard cut-outs like Tyler Posey’s leading male character, Lucy Hale’s good girl character, and the cocky asshole played by Sam Lerner. Violett Beane’s character Markey was a character I feel should have been given a lot more to do other than storm out of the room crying every time she hears a truth she doesn’t like, and with that brought up some groan-worthy teen drama. What sucks is that Markey has so much edge to her when she wasn’t all about her drama and could be a total bad ass, so I wish more focus had been given to that side of her instead of all her drama between Hale and Posey’s characters. For the most part though the characters are developed well-enough. The performances are passable, but it’s really Hale and most especially Beane who turn in the most standout performances. The biggest thing I praise the movie for is its dark ending. While I did love that the ending was dark, it was actually clever in how it ties into events and conversations that happen very early on in the movie.

Truth or Dare probably won’t be remembered in the future and it is far from an all out good movie, but if you want to watch a fun horror film that is entertaining from beginning to end with a couple of thrills and a hot cast, this one will do the job.

Something To Talk About: A QUIET PLACE (2018) Review

Set in a world that has been taken over by horrifying creatures, a family must now live in a world of silence in order to survive. Every day, a husband and wife live in fear that they will be unable to protect their children.

A Quiet Place is easily one of the most intense, heart-pounding, and terrifying horror films I’ve seen in a long time. Despite being a monster film, it’s an extremely fresh film. Most of the family is completely silent except for slight whispers you may hear from the characters. And the silence is what really escalates the horror. The slightest sounds that the character might or do make is enough to make you tense up and your heart jump into your throat and hold your breath. The scare/jump scenes that occur are so well-executed and go very much hand-in-hand with the intensity built up to them. What really helps build up the fear as well is how much you feel attached to the family and care about them. And of course the creatures themselves are pretty damn horrific.

For the most part there a very few calm moments and any that do come about exist to not only give us some emotional development between the characters, but also for the audience to finally catch their breath. For most of the film I was holding my breath, clenching my fists, or putting my hand over my mouth. When a film can emit that big of a reaction out of me (something that rarely happens), it’s one that is clearly doing something right. Apart from the horror elements, we also have a great family drama with plenty of emotional depth involved. This movie does bare some similarities to the movie Signs in how it combines a solid horror with family drama. There are some other elements that are similar to Signs, but I won’t reveal those here. This isn’t to say that this is a negative, but it is a thought came to mind. Finally, it’s worth mentioning that the performances in this movie are fantastic all across the board. Each actor delivers their own personal and outstanding performances with no one person standing out more than the other. However, real life couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt projects their romance on-screen with their fantastic chemistry. Okay, I do have to say that I’ll give Emily Blunt the torch for the best performance of the film. She brings forth a grand amount of emotion and fear in her role that stole the show. Millicent Simmonds (who is actually deaf in real life) turns an extremely excellent breakthrough performance as the couple’s oldest child.

I couldn’t recommend this fantastic horror movie more. It’s scary, fresh, and offers some solid drama and fantastic performances.

Clown Carnage: TERRIFIER (2018) Review

A psychotic serial killer dresses as a clown and pursues three young women on Halloween. They find themselves trapped inside of a run-down building where the clown known as Art resides.

Terrifier is the feature-length film based off the character seen in the anthology film All Hallows Eve, the director of the latter returns to direct Terrifier. The first half of the film is an extremely solid and actually pretty damn scary horror film. We are introduced to two young women returning from a party that decide to ease their drunkeness with some pizza before allowing themselves to drive. Prior to they come across Art the Clown in an alley and the blonde friend, Dawn, decides to mock him, while the very alert friend, Tara, feels very uneasy. While trying to enjoy their pizza, Art has followed them and stares menacingly at them. From there on out, it becomes a very stalk and slash film when we are ultimately introduced to Tara’s bookworm sister, Vicky. Much of the films gives very heavy vibes of Halloween and Scream in how it chooses to pursue to the stalk and slash formula. And this works just as well as those two classics. It also helps that Art the Clown is downright terrifying (I would honestly say more so than Pennywise), and really it’s thanks to David Howard Thornton who does an amazing job playing the psychotic clown, along with the excellent make-up work. Art is just as terrifying taunting his victims as he is when he’s being all-out psychotic. As mentioned, the first half is super intense, not just with Art doing his thing, but because of how well certain scenes are done in general. There’s a chase scene in a garage (similar to Paris Hilton’s chase in House of Wax), that is extremely intense.

As far as characters, Tara is extremely likable as the lead, and Jenna Kanell does a great job with the role, and while Dawn is supposed to be the obnoxious and idiot friend, I couldn’t help but enjoy her character that Catherine Corcoran clearly had a blast playing. Samantha Scaffidi does well enough as Victoria, but the only problem with her is that she just doesn’t have much to do. She’s introduced studying for an exam and has to go pick up Tara and Dawn, and that’s all we get from her. About halfway through the film is when we get a mid-point twist that didn’t really work at all for me. Had this been more warranted and had more foreshadowing or development, I would have been more okay with it. Not only this, but it is during this left half that I felt the film lost its momentum and started becoming a bit more silly than scary. This isn’t to say it’s still not enjoyable, but that the first half was clearly more inventive. I don’t know if this is because everything before the mid-point twist was more engaging and established, but something did feel a bit more lacking in the latter half. One thing that may be hit or miss with viewers is the kill and gore. This film is gory as hell and the gore looks great and is pretty brutal, but that could be its downfall in that some may find the movie turning into more of a torture porn film. I can understand this viewpoint, but I wasn’t personally bothered too much by all of the gore.

For a low budget slasher film, Terrifier is an extremely solid movie. We have some great kills, an excellent first half with a couple of fun characters and good performances, and more than anything we have an extremely terrifying (I swear all of these uses of “terrifying” are no pun intended) killer. This film is a blast and despite the issues with the last half and mid twist that I had, I would still highly recommend this movie.

Stylish Slashing: THE STRANGERS: PREY AT NIGHT (2018) Review

A family stays the night in rental trailer park that is seemingly abandoned. It’s not too long after they arrive that they get a knock at the door, and from there the three masked killers from the first make this family their next targets. Now the family must fight to survive.

After being in purgatory ever since the original film came out, 10 years later the sequel has been released. I was very skeptical about this, especially feeling like the original has lost its effect through time. Thankfully, I was massively surprised with this follow-up. Was it a sequel we absolutely needed, let alone 10 years later? Not really. But it sure as hell is a sequel that is surprisingly fantastic. What I think makes this sequel so great is that it could easily stand on its own. This follows a completely different beat and tone than the original. The original was a slow burn home invasion film, and this one is a suspenseful slasher film. And as a slasher, it is one of the most fun and suspenseful slashers I’ve seen in a very long time. The first act follows the family and their pretty basic drama with their teenage daughter being angsty, the son being in his own world, etc. Thankfully this is blown through really quick and we finally get to the horror. Once the horror kicks in it grabs you and never lets go.

Despite his first film The Other Side of the Door being a pretty terrible film, director Johannes Roberts has since impressed the hell out of me with 47 Meters Down, and now this film. With these two films, Roberts has proved to have a master touch of building suspense and perfectly timing some great jump scares. He also uses the entire trailer park to his advantage and making you feel as lost as the characters. What also helps deliver the suspense is the fantastic score and the soundtrack. Who would have thought 80s pop songs could be used so well to build suspense? The film’s score, along with its overall tone does really well of giving it a retro feel without being too on the nose about it. Not only this, but the film also features some pretty great nods to other horror films, and Roberts nails them too without coming off as rip-offs. Finally, the Strangers are more deadly and vicious than ever, so when our protagonists get the upper-hand on the villains you are hardcore cheering them on. The whole cast does a fine job, but it’s our sibling leads in Bailee Madison and Lewis Pullman that sell the movie. On their own their performances are solid, but together you love seeing them together with their bond. And these are characters who actually fight back despite being in fear for their lives, but even out of fear they don’t make very many stupid decisions, but when they do something violent, they are effected by this instead of acting super human about it. The siblings were actually fairly realistic in how they were written and portrayed, I could easily imagine this is how real people would react.

The Strangers: Prey At Night is a sequel you may not have wanted or needed, but it’s a sequel that surprised the hell out of me. Thinking about it now, it’s actually a very satisfactory follow-up and one I think we actually deserve by having characters actually fighting back. It may have a groan-worthy first act, but it doesn’t overstay its welcome before the horror begins and from there it’s a fun slasher thrill-ride.
