Truth or Dare:
Rotten Tomatoes: %15
IMDB: 5.1

“Success” is a pretty relative term depending on who you ask in the movie business, but two of the major focusing points would be Profit and RatingsProfit, of course, being the far more important of the two, for if nobody goes to see your critically acclaimed movie, you have a flop on your hands. Look no further then the original Blade Runner: a cult classic on all fronts but with a net loss of .5 million dollars which, in the scheme of ‘highly-rated movies that do poorly’ was far closer to the green end of things.

For example, Truth or Dare flopped critically, scoring only %15 on Rotten Tomatoes, bet broke generously even of its 3.5 million dollar budget, raking in 94.8 million in the box office.

The Lazarus Effect Rotten Tomatoes: %15 IMDB: 5.2

The Lazerus Effect is in a very similar boat, once again scoring a whopping %15; however, grossing over 35 million dollars in the box office.

Clearly, these movies are being watched, and turn a generous profit due to its low budget and surprisingly high return rates. These movies, however, do not tend to scare the audience they are attempting to, and their success can widely be contributed by how accessible they are by the movie-going public.
