movie poster for Nerve

The dark side of on-line gaming comes to life in the 2016 techno-thriller  Nerve. It's based on the 2012 novel of the same name. In this edition of SIU Reviews, film critic Walter Metz takes a closer look at the movie that puts a social media spin on the party game of Truth or Dare.

Nerve is currently playing at a theater near you. Walter Metz is a professor of Film Studies in the College of Mass Communication and Media Arts at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
