Truth or dare? holds a special place in my heart. Oh man I can't stop laughing at this movie. I still can't believe that they released it on dvd. I rented part 3 and really wish I didn't. God was that bad. They should have stopped after the first one.

I remember it. Tim Ritter's second film right? One of the first shot on video movies to get international distribution. It wasn't great, but just weird enough to keep you from falling asleep.
This film is a pure CLASSIC!
The music...the dry acting...the driving scenes!
My hat has to go off to the foolish police officer in the Hawaiian shirt Parnell, I mean he somehow screws up everything...even locks his keys in his car and has to take a taxi back to the station...and let us not forget about his great shoot out where he laughs hysterically and yells after pouring gasoline all over. (This isn't a spoiler...believe me....you just have to see this film...you'll laugh your ass off!)
I could talk about this one for hours on end...I love this flick. I first saw the trailer for this when I rented a film called "555" which I wish I could find. Anyways, as soon as I saw the trailer I knew it was a laugh riot, and as luck would have it I managed to grab a copy at a convention a few years back.
It was even better than I had thought, and get this...the DVD actually had extras, including trailers, a short featurette and commetary by Ritter himself.
And of course we can't forget AJ from the backstreet boys making his big screen debut!
Here's an amusing article on AJ's appearance AJ's Skeleton in the closet (http://flipsidemovies.com/backstreethorror.html)
Here's some great reviews on IMDB aswell more reviews (http://imdb.com/title/tt0092118/usercomments)
I also check on Sub Rosa's website for anyone looking for a copy, I don't see the DVD for sale, just a poster and VHS unfortunately...for those into "So bad it's good" flicks this should definitly be in your collection...

The chainsaw scene with the kid was hilarious and the other scene that was funny was the folks waiting for the bus-complete classic moments!!
