    The premise of "Would You Rather" is superb; my praise, however, ends there. This movie is simply unpleasant to watch. The acting is, for the most part, sub-par; Snow, in particular, comes off very amateurish at times. From start to finish, the movie pushes the viewer away. The entire film is tense, cold, and hopeless, so, when the thrills come, and there are plenty (one of the few areas in which the movie did its job), they feel like little prods to the stomach while one is already experiencing bad indigestion. All the plot twists, and here I use the term lightly, are completely predictable. Movies like this are powerful because they let the viewer get close, even comfortable, and then pull the proverbial rug; "Would You Rather" lets all its nastiness hang out from the very moment the game begins. Movies like this also derive power from the close and complex relationships between their characters and their viewers; in "Would You Rather," every time a character dies, it just feels like some awful statistic. This film is very unapproachable; even film franchises like Saw and Hostel are more approachable than this film. "Would You Rather" left a bad taste in my mouth, and, yes, I would rather have not watched it. Collapse

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. What absolute dross. Just a painfully bad torture porn flick with little to no real plot. Utterly predictable also, it doesn't take an idiot to work out what will happen to the main character and her brother from five minutes in. Some may find enjoyment, but I imagine that they are those with time to kill and low expectations for movies. Expand

    A movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat for something great to happen. That moment never comes. Predictably cheesy scenes and characters that serve no purpose.

    Results are simple-minded at best, contemptible at worst; most audiences would rather watch anything else.

    Though assured in execution and not without a few moments of genuine tension — mainly emanating from Combs' flinty weirdness — Would You Rather is hardly a most dangerous game night at the movies.

    Unfortunately, Would You Rather is content with being a risible borderline torture porn horror film.
