Number of Times Seen – 1 (17 Nov 2016)

Brief Synopsis – A high schooler joins an online game of truth or dare and begins to realize that all isnt truly what it seems to be.

My Take on it – This movie takes the idea of how much people rely on social media and reality tv and finds a way to gives us an intriguing premise.

Unfortunately, they lose all credibility because the idea gets to be too silly way too quickly and it’s almost impossible to believe some of the things that end up happening along the way.

The cast is average and none of them really stick out as characters that you can care about.

Bottom Line – Interesting premise that relies heavily on the fact that society has been obsessed lately with reality tv and interactive social media. Unfortunately the premise gets old very quickly and becomes way too silly to believe which eventually causes this film to lose almost all credibility. Cast is just ok with no one sticking out as being interesting enough to care about.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In one of the opening scenes, Vee (Emma Roberts) is “looking at the news” on her computer. On the right side of the news page is an article on James Franco; real-life brother of co-star Dave Franco (Ian). (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy
