For anyone who cares about the things that make horror worthwhile, "Truth or Dare" isn’t just a misfire, it’s a travesty.
Too dispiriting to be painful and too pointless to deserve the effort necessary for an additional word of opprobrium.
An alien invasion film that makes "Independence Day" look smart.
“Hollow cash grab” is one way to describe "The Grinch." Equally appropriate would be “soulless abomination.”

Pointless, loud, seemingly longer than a Peter Jackson film, and missing a credible story, this is for "Maze Runner" completists only.
If there’s something less subtle than a sledgehammer, it applies here.
Invested in audiences buying these two as a mismatched couple but the lack of a connection between Faris and Derbez makes it an unwise venture.
Unappealing and stale, a barely-watchable combination of clichés and irrelevant tangents.
At times dull and plodding and at other times cartoonishly silly, "Kin" rarely works and, when it does, it’s often for the wrong reasons.
A fully disengaged brain is probably the key to enjoyment. Even basic logic engenders a recognition of how truly stupid this screenplay is.
