Based on Jeanne Ryan's 2012 novel, Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman's Nerve is a mildly entertaining Black Mirror-like romantic conspiracy-thriller that periodically manages to provoke excitement despite a general lack of credibility.
"Emma Roberts and Dave Franco star in this crime thriller that centres on an online video game. The film follows Venus 'Vee' Delmonico (Roberts) as she takes part in an online game of truth or dare where she is assigned goals to complete for money. But, as a player, Vee soon finds her every move being controlled by her growing number of watchers, who follow her online as she completes her dares. After teaming up with Ian (Franco), the pair get given a series of dares to complete together, with the money and danger involved increasing each time. As the experience quickly evolves into a life-or-death struggle, Vee realises that the only way to escape the game without losing everything is to win it all." Lionsgate
