    Truth or Dare

    ★★½

    Truth or Dare? Sounds fun right? Wrong. In this popcorn flick we get a group of college kids who go to Mexico for one last spring break. What ends up happening is they run into a stranger who lures them to a castle to play a game of truth or dare. This isn't the normal game though. This game has been infiltrated by a demon.

    Vs. the Dead

    ★★★½

    Well now, this was a pleasant surprise. A nice twist on the zombie genre that didn't end up being buried by it's lower budget. It even had creativity to spare. Hollywood hates new ideas, it seems. So I'll just keep hoping and praying that little movies like this keep getting made that show the big guys that originality is not dead after all.

    We start out in Afghanistan, where the government has invented a serum called ROUND 2 that you…
