Truth Or Dare (2018)

Olivia and Markie have been best friends since high school. Now at university together, they head off for their last Spring Break in Mexico with a group of their closest friends. At a bar on the last night of their holiday, Olivia lets a cute guy buy her a drink and convinces her friends to head off with him to a spooky house to have a few last drinks. When they end up playing a game of Truth Or Dare, the friends soon find that they’ve started something they can’t finish. Something evil within the game won’t let them stop playing. If they refuse to play, they die, if they choose “dare” they may not survive, and if they choose truth, their lives might be destroyed by the secrets they hide from each other.
