 Would you Rather (2013) Review:

Watching the trailer, Would You Rather sounded like an exciting film based on an especially interesting concept. Unfortunately, the concept is the only thing I appreciated about it.

The main problem is simply the inexistent story, background or justification. Things are happening for no reason and, #spoilers#, nothing is explained in the end! This made me completely mad. Basically, the film depicts a game for 90 min but no one ever tells you why things are happening, nor what is all point of it. Apart from the main girl, the background of the characters is also inexistent, and their personalities do not evolve throughout the movie at all, making the story extremely predictable.

The games itself is kind of boring. I was expecting a lot more diversity in the tests, but each game is performed by all the characters one after the other, which make it really repetitive. Another problem is that you see pretty much all the games in the trailer.


The final is plain stupid and totally unnecessary and, in the end, the movie failed to build any suspense at all. I wouldn’t say that I didn’t care for that movie, because it is actually hard to stop watching it, but instead, I simply hated it. Maybe torture and extreme cinema fans will like it, but to me, it is the worst film of the year so far. It could have been a 1 /10 but I gave 2 /10 because of the presence of Jeffery Combs (Re-Animator, From Beyond, The Frighteners).
