    If you liked Killing Spree, you'll like this one, which is better. It shows up in a lot of horror guides and surprisingly, a lot of people have fond memories of it as an 80s slasher classic. To me they're both crap! His films are horrendous for the most part. As I have said in previous posts, I've worked on a couple of his films (Creep and Alien Agenda: Endangered Species). Writing is his main problem, but production values are very low as well. Killing Spree and Truth or Dare are the only 2 shot in film. His others were shot on video, including the 2 sequels to Truth or Dare.

    Truth Or Dare is a pretty sloppy movie, but still somewhat likable. I like Killing Spree much, much more. Truth Or Dare was originally supposed to be a lot different than what the end result turned out to be. The budget was slashed, the script was altered, etc. The DVD commentary is well worth listening to just to find out what a blunder Truth Or Dare really was.

    I was really curious about this but I saw just a ton of bad reviews so I kinda passed on it, should I check it out anyways?

    Does Tim do the commentary? He did a great article about that stuff for Fangoria a few years back.

    Yes.The commentary for this movie is great,Truth or Dare is one of my favorite 80's slasher movies.The bad acting is hilarious.Apparently from what they say in the commentary there is a part 2 and 3 out there as well.The disc contains the trailers for them.

    Yeah, you didn't read my first post about the 2 sequels. I worked with Tim on 2 films which he made between the 2 sequels. I have tapes of both that he gave me. They are really horrendous!!

    Oh sorry I must have been skimming.They didn't look too great but I guess the first one just stuck with me from when I saw it as a kid and I had a video copy for a long tome and was very glad when the DVD was released.

    If you read a description of Truth or Dare it sounds amazing and very violent. But unfortunately it moves at a snail's pace and the gore sucks (the driving reason to see bottom-of-the-barrel crap like this in the first place.) The synth score was pretty cool, however, and I liked the main guy's mask. Not much else to recommend. Get the DVD el cheapo.

    Killing Spree IS better, but not by much.

    Truth or Dare brings me back to the crazy teenager I was. Haven't seen it in years, but totally enjoyed it when I saw it. My buddies and I all thought it was really fun.

    I didn't realize it was even on DVD. I'll have to look for it.

    Which one had the guy chasing someone through a park or something and ran across a picnic and he stopped and took a bite out of a sandwich before he continued the chase? The guy had a gold mask on if i'm not mistaken.:lol:

    The gold mask is right but I think the sandwich eater must be from another movie.He does run over a baby carriage though! :)

    Are you sure? I could have sworn that was it. Damn I may have to torture myself and try to find this for rent somewhere.

    It's released by Sub Rosa so you should be able to pick it up cheap.It is classic cheese!There is more heart put into a movie like that then some studio crap like Independence Day!

    Gimme a break. Truth or Dare is just low-budget crap. Heart? I'd call it the notion of making a quick buck.

    And the word is 'decent.' :D
