Horror: A group of college students must contend with being trapped inside a game of truth or dare that's controlled by a demon and where if they refuse to play, they'll die.
Olivia (LUCY HALE) is a college senior who's planning on spending her spring break doing volunteer work for a charity. But her best friend, Markie (VIOLETT BEANE), convinces her to join her, her boyfriend, Lucas (TYLER POSEY), and the rest of their friends in Mexico for one last bit of partying. Joining them are Penelope (SOPHIA TAYLOR ALI) and her boyfriend, Tyson (NOLAN GERARD FUNK), and Brad (HAYDEN SZETO) who's yet to come out to his cop father.

When another student, Ronnie (SAM LERNER), makes unwelcome advances toward Olivia, a stranger, Carter (LANDON LIBOIRON), steps in and then invites her and her friends to accompany him to the ruins of an old mission where they end up playing a game of truth or dare. Unbeknownst to them, he's done so to trap them inside the game that's controlled by a demon and where if they refuse to select one of the two options or follow through on that, they'll die.

Olivia is the first up and initially can't get the others to believe her, but slowly one by one they find themselves subjected to the same where one or more people around them suddenly develop evil grins, make them choose truth or dare, and then give them their directions. As the consequences of that progressively get worse and people start dying, the survivors try to figure out what's causing that, eventually leading them to one of Carter's friends, Giselle (AURORA PERRINEAU), who's similarly trapped inside the game.

Since it's a horror film featuring college-age characters, it's a good bet a number of teens will be interested in seeing it.
For violence and disturbing content, alcohol abuse, some sexuality, language and thematic material.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
