The horror genre has been going through a pretty epic revival lately, thanks in no small part to Blumhouse, the studio behind 2017's two biggest horror hits, Split and Get Out. Blumhouse runs a pretty tight ship — they make horror movies on a tiny budget, promote them well on social media, and make a ton of money — and it works because the movies themselves are seriously good (and, in the case of Get Out, weirdly politically relevant).
#Blumhouse is typically pretty secretive about its upcoming releases (allegedly, the studio will release a mystery movie in April), but we did just learn something pretty exciting about the supernatural horror Truth Or Dare courtesy of Deadline. Here's the premise:
The plot follows a college student in Mexico who is conned into playing a supernatural version of Truth or Dare. The game doesn’t stop and follows her back home.
The pedigree behind this one is strong — Pretty Little Liars actress and fashionable human being Lucy Hale is set to play the lead role, and #TruthOrDare is written and directed by Jeff Wadlow, who wrote Bates Motel and directed Kick Ass 2.
Supernatural horror seems to have taken a back seat to more psychological #horror in the last year or so, but if people being tormented by ghosts is your thing, Blumhouse also has Insidious Chapter 4 out later this year.

Personally I'm pretty stoked about Truth Or Dare, despite knowing almost nothing about it right now. We'll keep you posted the second we get a bone-chilling teaser.
