Arriving on Blu-ray, DVD & VOD 27th AUGUST 2012
Snatched from our familiar lives, thrust into a world of uncertainty. Faced with captors who could be financially or politically motivated or worse still, driven by psychotic urges and desires that cannot be satiated with the release of a hostage or a bag of used notes.
Truth or Dare sees a group of good looking youngsters held hostage and placed at the mercy of a charismatic lunatic with murder glinting in his eyes. Here are some other Kidnap and Hostage flicks from yesteryear that will put you on the edge of your seat in the same way as the upcoming movie, which hits Cinemas August 6th.
Watch out for the DVD and Blu-ray release, spreading terror from August 27th.
Truth or Dare is about a man whose lost his mind seeking bloody and drawn out revenge but there are many reasons to take a hostage or two in the word of film, here are some more…
Last House On The Left
Wes Craven’s orgy of loathing and disgust, in which a gang of drugged out psychopaths kidnap to young, naive girls and drag them off to the woods to play appalling games with their lives, ending in abuse and murder is still hard to watch decades later. Perhaps the ultimate in dirty grindhouse hostage cinema.
Two psychotic young men invade a family home in this tough to watch home invasion take on the hostage format. Exactly how much torture and humiliation can one family take before they turn on their captors?
Fight For Your Life
And you thought Last House of the Left was a work of cinematic evil with a black amoral heart… Welcome to Fight For Your Life. Imagine everything thats nasty about the roughest exploitation cinema and add a vicious dose of tit-for-tat racism as a gang of prison escapees hold up in a black middle class household and set about tormenting the family. A psychological hell ride.
From the fleapit to the Hollywood mainstream. This glossy exercise in family man paranoia from the days when Mel Gibson had great looking hair and a decent reputation is simple, effect hostage drama, ramped up to the nth degree in order to create maximum tension. A child snatched from a public place, a gang of ruthless criminals and a ransom that would destroy most people. Perfect time wasting Hollywood thriller action.
