There are many disadvantages to being in Northeast Ohio. The most obvious one being our professional sports teams are just awful. The second is that we don’t have any horror film festivals featuring new independent films (that I know of at least).
That means we miss out on festival favorites like Jessica Cameron’s directing debut Truth or Dare. Truth or Dare follows “(s)ix college kids find internet stardom when they make ‘Truth or Dare’ videos with a violent twist. It is all fun and games until their number one fan decides he wants to play by his own rules”. Jessica Cameron co-wrote (along with Jonathan Scott Higgins) the film, and she also produced, directed, and stars in it.
You can learn more about the movie on its Facebook page (/TruthOrDareTheMovie), or follow it on Twitter (@FilmTruthOrDare) Team Truth or Dare contacted us with the following press release about its Hollywood premier on January 10:
