Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Despite some amateur performances, Truth or Dare manages to make its name as 2014’s most fucked up film and earn plenty of accolades for visual effects. Cameron should be proud as her first foray in the director’s seat has left a stamp across the horror community and will require a strong stomach for anyone not used to this level of blood and guts on their screen.” BloodGuts UK Horror

” …Cameron’s themes have already been mined more effectively in films like The Den and Lucky Bastard. Her strictly B-movie script, penned with Jonathan Scott Higgins, strings one ludicrous contrivance after another, each requiring the ridiculous response of a weakly crafted character to work, all in the name of extreme gore.” Screen Relish

“Jessica Cameron’’s first outing as director is fast-paced and tight. Though the torture is excruciating, it’s the truths of who these people are as individuals that really turns the stomach. The script, co-written with Jonathan Scott Higgins, focuses on horrifying its audience in a different way, with the truth, not the dare.” Coming Soon

“It’s a real testament to the film’s script and direction that you side with this pretty horrible bunch, of course, it helps that Ryan Kiser, as Derik, is such an evil psychotic bastard […] With a lot to say on the pursuit of fame (or infamy) in this YouTube-loving generation, and the price people can pay when they achieve it, Truth or Dare is most definitely a product of our time. It’s also damn good gory fun!” Nerdly
