Fascination With Horror Movies Sets Stage For TRUTH OR DARE

TOD_Tsr1Sheet_RGB_1Get ready for a creepy tale on Friday the 13th! “Truth or Dare” arrives in theaters to scare your pants off in April.

The movie is produced by horror movie mastermind Jason Blum, whose company Blumhouse Productions was behind the 2017 blockbusters “Get Out” and “Split.”

In this new supernatural thriller, a harmless game of “Truth or Dare” among a group of college friends turns deadly when someone – or something – begins to punish those who tell a lie or refuse the dare.

The film, directed by Jeff Wadlow (“Kick-Ass 2”), stars Lucy Hale (“Pretty Little Liars”), Tyler Posey (“Teen Wolf”), Violett Beane (“The Flash”), Sophia Taylor Ali (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Nolan Gerard Funk (MTV’s “Awkward”), and Hayden Szeto.

If you like sinister, creepy and hair-raising flicks, you probably don’t want to miss this one. A look at the movie trailer promises to keep your heart racing and adrenaline pumping – a signature effect of Blum films.

Blum has developed the perfect formula for success, turning small budget films into a horror movie gold mine with such hits as “Insidious,” “The Purge,” “Happy Death Day,” “Unfriended,” “Sinister,” and “Creep,” which have grossed over $2 billion worldwide. His first big hit, “Paranormal Activity” was his biggest profit-maker. Produced with a $15,000 budget, it made more than $193 million worldwide.

Why are his movies such a big success? Because he loves horror movies – when they’re well done.

“A lot of horror movies get made by people who don’t really like them, so they don’t respect them,” says Blum.

Even though he usually produces his films for less than $5 million, he always tries to deliver a great story with compelling characters and good acting.

“Horror is great storytelling with scary elements on top of it, but if you don’t have great storytelling, you can have all the scares in the world, but the movie won’t work.”

Don’t miss “Truth or Dare” in theaters on April 13.

@Thisfunktional Movie Review: AMERICAN EXORCISM

Fighting the Supernatural in a Different Way in “AMERICAN EXORCISM”

Written by Jesus Figueroa (@Thisfunktional)

When an all-American teenage girl begins to be too rebellious for her adopted father, the ex-exorcist father comes around to help make sure demons haven’t followed her in “American Exorcism.”

This may not be a movie for the entire family, but its an entertaining view with some horror, some action and some teenage angst.

Damon, played by Michael Filipowich, decides he will step away from his exorcist life with his partner Will, played by Braxton Davis, for his family.

Filipowich is strange and looks different from what is expected from a holy fighter of demons. He brings a good change to the typical religious exorcist.

Davis is the clean cut bible exorcist which contrasts the look of Filipowich. The two work well together as they play off each other well.

Tragic events separate Damon from young Caroline, played by Sicily Fontaine, until a teenage Caroline, played by Kate Tumanova, starts to take her rebellious behavior too far and her biological father comes back into her life.

Fontaine is a typical little girl who is enjoying her life with her parents. She’s not on screen too much, just about 5 minutes in the beginning of the film.

Tumanova comes in as the grown teenage Caroline and plays the rebellious, bad girl well. The young look to her gives her an innocent look which isn’t what you expect from her behavior. This performance is the best part of the movie.

The story revolves around Damon and his teenage daughter Caroline and the strange things happening in the life of Caroline.

The non-typical methinks that Damon uses to exorcise demons is an interesting method, which ads a more action element to the movie.

At points the things Damon does can come off as comical, but then the immediate suspense after adds to the scary supernatural element.

Caroline is fantastic at being a force to be reckoned with and a captivating character which can be manipulative and mysterious.

The ending is a good payoff. There’s a good twist which if the audience pays attention can see it coming.
