Asa Butterfield, Eddie Marsan, Robert Englund: As mentioned before, Netflix has high hopes for Choose Or Die , which seems to be an interesting combination of several popular genres: Horror/thriller, kids’ fantasy (the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure series is more widely read by adults than kids), a coming-of-age movie with young teenage protagonist. Add in famous cast members like Asa Butterfield, Iola Evans, and Robert Englund, and you have what could be one of Netflix’s biggest releases yet. But can it live up to expectations? We’ll find out soon enough!
Eight teenagers are forced to play a game of Truth or Truth, a deadly version of Truth or Dare. The object of their twisted game is simple; tell the truth, don’t lie, complete your task…or die. Tonight, these eight classmates will literally play for their lives as they are placed in a house rigged with cameras. There is no escape from what lies ahead…no matter how hard they try to run!
Following an invitation to pitch his story, Meakins began writing Choose or Die in early 2016. Filming began at Easter 2016 in London. The film was shot digitally with ARRI Alexa cameras. Netflix signed on as producers before filming commenced and added their involvement publicly in June 2016. Prior to its premiere at FrightFest, it had been announced that a wide release would follow later in 2017. It will be released theatrically by Vertigo Releasing on 25 September 2017.
Choose or Die was critically panned upon its release, earning a 4% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The critical consensus for Choose or Die reads: A terrible horror comedy, with poor acting and amateurish direction by first-time director Toby Meakins. It has been criticized for having very little tension, being too predictable, and not using its premise well enough. Despite praise from some critics for Iola Evans’ performance as heroine Katie Collins, it has been called one of 2018’s worst films. Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of C on an A+ to F scale.

Not really. The movie is basically a version of Saw with more choose your own adventure elements, but there’s very little interactivity beyond a few question prompts at key points throughout. The actual story centers on Asa Butterfield’s character—Maxine—who wakes up in an underground bunker after being kidnapped by a seemingly sadistic serial killer.
Is Choose or Die gory?
Yes! But, even if you’re looking for gory thrills, there’s so much more to it than just a scary premise.

If you can stomach it, that is… You’ll definitely be jumping at some points in the movie! I love how real all of its scenes feel, especially since it takes place in London. There are some amazing locations used throughout—especially since many of them are real-life haunted places—and Meakins does an excellent job filming them in such a way that makes them look even creepier on screen. Even though it was released earlier last year, I highly recommend checking out Choose or Die if you haven’t already seen it!
