In his interview with Playlists, Wood said he watched “Truth or Dare?” when he was “very young” and was recommend it for “lots of people” since then. “Real or challenging?” is one of those movies that is so bad as to be good, similar to Tommy Wiseau’s “The Room,” that has garnered a cult following with its meme-worthy dialogue. Wood describes the film’s premise and why it’s so compelling as an ’80s murder thriller:
“It’s about a guy who is clearly deranged, and at the beginning of the film he witnesses a scene where a coworker sleeps with his wife and he turns out and drives away in a fit of rage and ends up in a rage. ended up camping overnight and basically imagining this person next to him and they either playing real or dare, and it ended up being very violent because the dare game became very violent very quickly. funny and very trendy. Super low budget and like I said, direct-for-VHS, and it’s amazing, I love it so much.”
Simply have a look at trailers of the movie will give you an idea of the kind of experience it offers. To paint a clearer picture, here’s how the plot develops. Mike Strauber (John Brace) is admitted to the Sunnyville Psychiatric Institute after mutilating himself in a hallucinatory game of truth and recklessness. After being released, Mike killed the man who slept with his wife and was re-admitted to the crime. At this point, Mike is completely driven mad by trauma, and kills every man, woman, and child that comes his way in an extremely brutal and tasteless murderous frenzy. But that’s part of the fun.
