Blumhouse Productions have been on a winning streak in my book when it comes to releasing unique and fun horror films under their brand. Movies such as Get Out, Happy Death Day, and Split. Just like New Line Cinema or Dimension Films in the 90’s and 2000’s, when I see that logo, I know I am in for a horror-ific treat. Blumhouse Productions is starting to become that latest logo for me and their latest film under their resume is Truth or Dare.
Why they agreed to play the game is beyond me. pic via blumhousestruthordare.com
Truth or Dare is the latest teen slasher flick with a mission to take an old fashion horror movie blue print with a different unique approach to the “slasher”. The PG-13 film stars Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars) and Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf) as two of a group of friends who want to spend their last spring break with each other in Mexico before they all separate into adulthood. They stumble upon a stranger who convinces them to go to a specific location to play the game truth or dare. Once they play, they are permanently in the game and have to continue to play or die. Don’t tell the truth, you die, refuse to do the dare, you die.
With the latest horror films coming out this month, A Quiet Place (Apr. 6) and Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare (Apr. 13) both rated PG-13, a friend of mine presented to me a question on my way home from work. He asks, “What are you top 5 horror films rated PG-13?” Immediately, I was intrigued with the question. It is something I have probably talked about a lot sporadically but never really thought about the question and made a list for myself to be ready when said question would arise. Well, now I have no excuse. I have thought about it and here are my top 5 favorite horror films rated PG-13.
“Spider-Man big screen adaptation take 3” *claps clapperboard
Sony is giving the Spider-Man franchise another go with another semi reboot of our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man with the help of Marvel Studios. This time around, Spider-Man has been embedded into the MCU a.k.a Marvel Cinematic Universe. With his brief and scene stealing cameo in Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) was introduced and kicked off the start of his involvement into one day becoming an avenger. Up till now, his franchise only has him swinging into crime solving solo, never receiving any assistance with his heroism and now fans get to see him team up with other marvel heroes where he belonged.
Don’t let the somewhat questionable possibly horrible title of the film fool you. Baby Driver is an amazing flick. Edgar Wright, responsible for a lot of great films including one of my favorite movies of all time…Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, brings us an enjoyable ride for almost 2 hours. Right at the start of the movie you are sucked in with the eye-catching moves and charisma of Ansel Elgort, who plays Baby, and Edgar’s great direction with using the environment and surroundings to make one of the most entertaining openings sequences I can remember. I knew right then that this movie is going to be fun to watch.
Despicable Me franchise isn’t well known for its gut bursting laughs or remembered movies. The film does have some good qualities bringing us the Minions who are a merchandise gold when it comes to marketing and sales. Steve Carell’s name attached to it with his unique voice acting to the lead character Gru just as unique as Mike Myers is to Shrek. What they lack in big laughs for both kids and adults they make up with a lot of heart. The story of a villain turned parent and hero overnight is a nice story.
