Blumhouse Moves ‘Truth or Dare’ to Appropriate Friday the 13th Date

Blumhouse had a whole lot of success last year with their Friday, October 13 release of clever slasher Happy Death Day, and we’ve learned tonight that they’re looking to have the same success at the box office this year by once again capitalizing on Friday the 13th.

Originally scheduled for release on April 27, Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare has just been bumped up two weeks to Friday, April 13. Smart move, we say.

“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.

      That description sounds way better haha

      • Barry El Beardo

        Thanks babes 🙂

  • The Dark One

    Well it looks different and original. Although for some reason it gives me the ring meets unfriended.

    • theundead

      You’re kidding right?

    • Grimphantom

      You kinda answered your own question on originality. Especially with the stabbing on the head since Slender Man is also doing it…..along with doing The Ring and other cliches from boring teen horror movies.

    ‘The Producer of…’ lol

    Blumhouse is in danger of becoming a production line house, out of which interchangeable films are pumped; if they are not careful.

    Happy Death Day wasn’t so much clever as it was a remake of Groundhog Day, but it was entertaining to watch, I suppose but not to buy.

    I made the mistake of watching Insidious 4, last night… not very good. Not good at all. Shame, I was hoping that it would be better than the awful 3rd entry but it’s about on a par.

    Still, there’s always The Nun to look forward to. And I am looking forward to that one.

    • The Nun is not from Blumhouse 😉

      • xcalibrate ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        It’s odds of being good have improved then.

    • Grimphantom

      I think Happy Death Day could’ve turned well if it was made R rated, i mean they really missed out the opportunity to be creative with her deaths also the revelation of who’s the killer was meh.

  • Will Coors

    Looks like a final destination movie and to be honest, I rather another one of those movies. I’ll consider this one IF it gets an R rating

    • DJ sTikInsEkT

      frst 3 final dest are wicked!! 4 and 5 were werid. 5 had bits i liked though @ end

      • Will Coors

        i wasn’t too crazy for 4 but I did enjoy 5. I would gladly watch another sequel just for some cool death scenes.

        • DJ sTikInsEkT

          i had idea it could be either about the survivor of 1’s death. we never see him die we hear about it. so at end of 5 the survivors who were on the same plane as him they try to meet up with him and witness his death or make it in a Zoo and a man imagines all the animals escaping gorilla, lions etc killing people and that wold be a good setting in a zoo

  • Creepshow

    Truth: It’s a movie about people making dopey faces.

    The trailer looked like a sequel to Soundgarden’s video for Black Hole Sun.

    • DJ sTikInsEkT

      the fact u actually sat down watched the trailer u need a medal. u should spend that time digging up obscure gems and watching them insted

  • It’s impressive that we keep placing horror movies to come out on friday the 13th and still we don’t get a proper Friday movie. Baffling.

  • pablitonizer

    Looks terrible, at least Happy death day looked and it was fun!

    • DJ sTikInsEkT

      i didnt C deth day is it good?

      • Saturn

        Happy Death Day is pretty fantastic – not much in terms of grue but the movie itself didn’t need it.
        It’s one of those fun horror films kinda like we used to get them before all the dour torture porn stuff happened – fun in a positive manner – with a lead who you’ll initially hate, but who you will be rooting for towards the end.
        It’s (I’d have to think about it for final position) in my top 3 of 2017.

        • DJ sTikInsEkT

          gonna get it1!

      • pablitonizer

        it’s fun…I wouldn’t call it good, it’s just fun! You’re gonna have a good time watching it…hope u get what I mean

  • Kyle Cole

    Was sad to hear that they bumped New Mutants from the April 13th slate. I was looking forward to seeing it. Truth or Dare looms like a PG13 teen thriller. Still might check it out

  • The “scary” faces are so stupid! Truth or Dare will be the funniest comedy of the year.

    • Khy

      I hate the faces

      • J Jett

        same here.

    • I like them, as i said under another comment there was an idea there and while it wasn’t executed that well but something about it creeps me out, maybe because they resemble the actual people and that uncanny valley fear takes over lol

    • Zazobusha

      While the faces are pretty cheesy, they definitely look a lot more original and are kind of a breath of fresh air compared to people’s eyes turning black or something like that, which happens literally in every single demonic possession movie released to this date

      • That’s true, I completely agree.

  • diapers

    I concur on hating those faces. Seems like a fun popcorn flick otherwise though.

    • J Jett

      i agree. the stupid looking smiles/faces is irritating. lol.

  • Necro

    So it’s another teen scream cash crab from Blumhouse? I’m asking cuz it certainly seems like it. If they have any balls they’ll release this with an R rating. And while ‘Happy Death Day’ was commercially successful I don’t get the praise about it. Ok it was PG-13 and it isn’t always about blood and guts I get that, but besides not showing really anything at all, what did the film offer besides predictable jump scares? And clearly was a ripoff of ‘Groundhog Day’. I just hope this film isn’t like that. It seems to really have potential. Well except for the ‘Soundgarden: Black Hole Sun’ faces

    • J Jett

      now i’m worried because i praised BEFORE I WAKE to you. lol. i actually VERY much liked HAPPY DEATH DAY but i completely understand why you feel the way you do about it.

      • Necro

        It’s cool J, no worries my friend. That’s the beauty of opinions. Well two thing’s for sure Mike Flanagan is still the director and this one was on my list for awhile now.

    • Khy

      Yeah, Blumhouse needs to leave the teen horror genre alone if they aren’t going to at least go all out and give us some worthwhile kills.

      People hate on films like I Know What You Did Last Summer, Valentine, and Urban Legend all the time but at least those movies were R and had some decent kills.

      I LOVE teen horror, so if Blumhouse wants to pump out even more- go for it…but as you said…grow some balls. Sucks that they didn’t give their hard R ‘Town That Dreaded Sundown’ reboot as much promotion as Ouija, Happy Death Day, Unfriended, Truth Or Dare ect.

      • Necro

        Definitely agree Khy! Now look I don’t mind ‘teen Horror’, but show me a little bit please, even if not R rated (my preferred rating). I’m a very open-minded fan and I like pretty much every sub-genre we have and it doesn’t always have to be blood and guts and gore galore, but like ‘Happy Death Day’, a slasher film that showed absolutely nothing?! I’m not arguing the financial success, but when you strip that away what are we left with. ‘Wish Upon’, here’s one I really liked and even though Blumhouse wasn’t behind it they should take some notes. Oh I loved ‘Town That Dreaded Sundown’! Yeah some films just don’t get the ‘special’ treatment that others do. And all the films you mentioned in there were good to. I can’t argue with Blumhouse’s success, but they should grow some balls and push the teen Horror boundaries a little bit further. But that’s just my opinion so……..

    • Saturn

      In fairness to HDD they did mention Groundhog Day in the movie, so instead of it being a rip off I consider it an homage.
      Still, Groundhog Day was predated by 12:01 anyway…..

  • J Jett

    their CGI’d smiles looks exactly like Schaech’s weird (but still Godly!) smile in DAY OF THE DEAD: BLOODLINES. lol.

    • Khy

      The more I think about it, the more I think this entire concept would’ve worked better as a fun trippy little horror novel. I think the smiles we could all conjure up in our imaginations would be much scarier than anything they can depict on screen.

      • I agree! I really like the idea of the smiles, theres something creepy about it. But I also like the CGI in a way because it’s keeping that campy factor which was what made me want to see Happy Death Day

        • Khy

          How in the hell haven’t Blumhouse gotten Kevin Williamson to write a teen horror for them?

          Just re-watched Teaching Mrs. Tingle the other night I am starving for another Kevin Williamson thrillfest. He should’ve wrote both Happy Death Day AND Truth Or Dare. He does this stuff well.

          • hmm I’m not familiar with Teaching Mrs. Tingle. Thanks for the recommendation though 😀

          • Khy

            Haha, it’s a film Kevin wrote and directed. It’s a lot of fun about three teens who hold their teacher hostage. It stars Katie Holmes and Helen Mirren. More of a thriller but it is such a good time and as per usual with Williamson’s material- it is loaded with horror movie references left and right and the writing is superb.
            Enjoy!

          • J Jett

            wasn’t is originally titled KILLING MRS. TINGLE? i could have sworn that that was it but it got changed (as well as the overall storyline too?) due some real life murders in schools around the time the movie was being released or written.
            is it a good film? i haven’t seen it but it sounds like it might be worth watching (going by your comment/review). 🙂

          • Saturn

            Yes, it was originally called Killing Mrs Tingle – the name got changed after a school shooting iirc, it may have been Columbine but I’m not certain if the date of the movie and Columbine were similar.

          • Saturn

            I wonder what he could come up with for a Friday The 13th movie…

    • Saturn

      His influence is growing……Inschaecha!

    • Gjk2012

      Too bad. I thought that was a real smile. I would love to have a hot girlfriend like her who has that evil smile.

    • DJ sTikInsEkT

      i thouhgt it was just the actor. that was the best part of the movie that zombie smile. god that movie sucked

  • Jose Ortiz

    its because “new mutants” got delayed so they took that chance and got that friday the 13th release date.

    • Saturn

      Good luck to them – the more decent horror in theatre’s the better…

  • Tyler McPherson

    Should have moved this movie to the trash bin. A movie based on Truth or Dare? What’s next? Rock Paper Scissors?… I probably just gave a Hollywood executive an idea…

    • Saturn

      They thought they’d killed him, that the evil was gone forever, but tonight is the 10 year anniversary of the ROCK PAPER SCISSOR massacre, and the the first ROCK PAPER SCISSOR World Championships held in Paperville since that fateful night, and the paper-cut murders have started again……Rocky Scissorman is dead…………isn’t he?

      • DJ sTikInsEkT

        they gonn make one based on hopscotch next. every time they jump on a square a man gets tortured lol

        • Saturn

          I dunno, I’d watch a movie called Hopscotch Massacre.
          Perhaps the killer forces her victims to play, and each number that marker lands on has a different test for the victim, I mean player,
          Each test that is failed leads to the loss of a body part for their partner, who is a loved one.

          The twist at the end could be that the killer is using the game as some kind of sacrificial altar to bring about the return of the Egyptian God Seti, as it’s claimed the origins of the game can be traced by to ancient Egypt.

  • DJ sTikInsEkT

    bet the bearded hipsters R all over this. bet they oirderd big pizza sit down in their flannels to watch this

  • Donald Occhipinti
