TRUTH OR DARE is a horror thriller in which a group of teenage friends find their lives endangered when they are unwittingly drawn into a high stakes game.

Threat

Scenes of threat are brought about by the premise of the story in which characters are 'possessed' by the spirit of the game they are playing, indicated by them adopting a sinister leering grin. In this state, they are compelled to commit acts of violence against themselves and others.

Violence

Strong violence include shootings, stabbings and a throat slashing. Some of the violence is self-directed, under the control of the game spirit. For instance, a young man rams a pen into his head through the eye socket.

There are some suicide references and a scene in which a girl aims a gun at her head with the intention of shooting herself before a friend persuades her not to.

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), and milder terms such as 'bitch', 'asshole' and 'shit'.

There are moderate sex references such as a boy trying to persuade girls to lap dance and referring to his penis as his "pool cue" while proposing sex.

There is a storyline involving a boy selling counterfeit medical prescriptions to students.
