At the library, she decides truth and is being told to inform her best buddy Markie’s deepest secret. Olivia revealed that Markie continuously cheats on Lucas and with him in an earshot.
At the college bar, Olivia learned that Ronnie passed away when he did not pass in completing the dare. Olivia gathered her friends and tried convincing them that their game is real. In line with the order that the ream played in Mexico, it is Markie’s turn. She was then obliged to break the hand of Olivia.

She tried to choose the truth, but their game forced the dare on her. Penelope needs to drink the vodka and walk along the rim of the house’s roof. She finally falls from that roof, but Brad, Olivia and Markie save her. The team finds out about the lady named as Giselle Hammond, who has been wanted for murder cases. They suspected she is also the participant of this game, and contacted her.
The Writers View
The film is pretty straightforward. As far as legitimately good is concerned, it only takes a bit. There are weird smiles that each of the cast makes at one point being so scary for the others, but for some, it is funny at times.
It all sounds so simple enough. However, the moviemakers still altered the rules all throughout the movie; also, it radically altered what we knew regarding the casts. Maybe these alterations were supposed to point out that the game exposed the real selves and all of the previous facts were false. But it does not totally work since also the characters who know nothing regarding the game change radically from a scene to a next level. This is some sort of a thing that will make a movie clearly bad, however, also secretly type of good since you may also laugh in some badness.
