Ex­ploit­ing so­cial me­dia’s se­duc­tive pull and in­sid­i­ous grip to dra­matic ef­fect, this nippy teen thriller will strike a chord with its tar­get au­di­ence. Many, too, will iden­tify with Emma Roberts’ timid high-school stu­dent who steps per­ilously out of her com­fort zone when she signs up for an on­line dare game that in­cites its play­ers to com­plete ever more out­landish dares on cam­era. Roberts and co-star Dave Franco, as a fel­low player, are a tad too old for their roles, but the film zips along with a slick en­ergy. 2016,15, 96MIN
