Play the Game or Die Horribly in ‘Truth or Dare’ Trailer

Play the Game or Die Horribly in ‘Truth or Dare’ Trailer

They’re not playing the game. It’s playing them.

From the producer of Happy Death Day and Get Out comes Jeff Wadlow’s Truth or Dare, which turns the party game into a slasher film in the vein of Final Destination. A group of friends find themselves playing a particularly nasty version of the game; they have to do whatever the game tells them to do or they will be instantly killed in a brutal way.

The game only ends when all the players are dead, which should make for a fun – and hopefully gory – horror flick. Let’s just cool it with the CG face morphs, shall we?

Universal Pictures will release Truth or Dare on April 27, 2018.

“A harmless game of “Truth or Dare” among friends turns deadly when someone—or something—begins to punish those who tell a lie—or refuse the dare.”

Tyler Posey (“Teen Wolf”), Violett Beane (“The Flash”), Lucy Hale (Scream 4), Nolan Gerard Funk, Hayden Szeto, and Sophia Taylor Ali, and Aurora Perrineau (Freaks of Nature) star in the latest supernatural horror film from Blumhouse Productions.

Wadlow co-wrote the script with Chris Roach and Jillian Jacobs from a story by Michael Reisz, Wadlow, Roach and Jacobs. Micro-budget maven Jason Blum is producing with Wadlow, Roach and Blumhouse’s Couper Samuelson serving as exec producers.

Wadlow is the writer behind A&E’s “Bates Motel” and the writer-director of Kick Ass 2.



  • Reason

    Man, that looks so ridiculous it’s AWESOME!

    • Hayden Koutras

      Exactly what i was thinking, looks like it should make for a great group viewing!

    • New J-Mart

      It looks like a FUN horror movie which we haven’t had in a while.

  • le4therfac3

    i feel like we don’t see many horror movies anymore that just look like a fun time. looking forward to this.

  • EvilHead1981

    Meh, looks like 00s-era teen horror inspired crap. The same shit that inspired shit like The Gallows, The Bye Bye Man and the first Ouija movie.

    • Grimphantom

      You can add the Slender Man on the list too.

  • Necro

    Looks ok, hopefully with Blumhouse’s involvement there will be a better outcome!

    • Necro

      After watching the trailer for the 4th time it definitely has potential. This needs to be rated R.

      • david

        Hopefully it is, but if it’s rated PG-13 the studio would be wise to release an rated R blu ray version a few months after it’s released in theaters.

  • Seal Clubber

    This sounds stupid on paper …. but the trailer looks actually pretty good.

  • Hash-Slinging Slasher

    Oh, for fuck’s sake. Was this a tax write off?

  • Nekrim

    Lol what’s with the litteral troll faces

    • New J-Mart

      Yeah they look like Snapchat filters

  • Se_7_eN

    This looks terrible, in a good way… I will see it.

  • J Jett

    SyFy Channel just aired (on Halloween) a new TRUTH OR DARE film that looked pretty good. is it odd to have several movies come out the same year (or close) with the same names?

    • MrX13

      Um, it’s pretty normal for movies to come out with the same premise. I don’t have SyFy so I never heard of that Truth or Dare, but this one looks interesting. I just can’t get past the fake, CG smiles. Why couldn’t they do sinister looks instead?

    • Necro

      There was another set of films called ‘Escape Room’

  • New J-Mart

    Truth Or Dare?

    • MrX13

      Dare to tell the truth or truthfully do the dare

      • New J-Mart

        I don’t want to die so Dare to tell the truth.

        • MrX13

          Yeah same here, tell the truth and I get to live

  • Travis

    I’m sorry but this looks like dog shit. The bad cgi. The acting. I can’t.

  • MrX13

    Despite the fake, CG smiles, I do want to watch this movie and see how it all ends.

  • As a Blumhouse completist (yes we exist) i wanna see it and i probably will but it looks a little bit worse than their recent output

  • Kyle Cole

    I’ll definitely check this one out! Syfy aired their version of truth or dare back in October and that one was pretty good. Judging by the trailer, they have the same plot.

    • Necro

      Yeah Kyle I was pleasantly surprised with the SyFy film. I truly hope this is rated R!

      • david

        Exactly Necro. Hopefully the movie will have plenty of boobs, butts, guts, and sluts. 🙂

      • Kyle Cole

        Yeah I hope so too. But I have a feeling they’ll rate this one pg13. The one that was on syfy was pretty grisly and nasty, so I’m hoping this new one is as well

  • ChattyWhacker

    Interesting concept but I’m not liking the execution that I’m seeing in this trailer. Could be possible that this will be a surprise hit but I’ve got no interest of seeing this on release.

  • Me before to watch the trailer:
    Holy sh*t, the plot looks good, Bloomhouse does enjoyable horror movies, and I love Final Destination films, so let’s watch the trailer.

    Me after the trailer:
    What the f*ck? This movie looks worse than Wish Upon. I don’t wanna remember the demonic face of the victims because they don’t look scary, they look the most stupid thing I’ve seen in a movie.

    In my opinion they should change the bad stupid faces.

  • david

    This looks promising. It reminds me of It Follows, and Final Destination. I just hope that it’s rated R.

    • danweL

      What a worthwhile comment, David. You hope that a horror movie is rated R? How novel. Do you have any other great ideas?

  • Ivan Camacho

    Trollface: The Movie

  • Looks actually creepy, but also campy which attracts me to Blumhouse movies like Happy Death Day, they start out with young adults typically normal and shit basically hits the fan that scares you on the fact that you would hate to be in this situation. I like the idea. It looks original at least even if it rips off the Final Destination franchise.

  • NOCC Monkey

    Looks ridiculous, but I’m sure i’ll watch it anyway.

  • John Ray

    Now we wait for the inevitable PG-13 rating announcement.
