Critic Consensus: Visceral, if at times vapid, Dare Me's slow-burning thriller pairs nicely with its moody atmospherics to create a deft exploration of the interiority of teen life.

Tv Season Info
When that disorienting, who-to-believe framework gets reflected from multiple angles, "Dare Me" truly delivers.
Such plotting -- of teenage girls being pitted against each other and drifting apart -- could come off cliche, but Dare Me does more than incorporate the trope. It examines the way conflict warps the girls' perception of each other, giving it more nuance.
Dare Me feels like one of those shows that you're either going to buy into from the start or just shrug and abandon because the story isn't moving along fast enough.
What was at first a seemingly relaxed teen drama soon proves itself to be a skillfully told thriller with a penchant for surprises and twists that don't undercut the power of the narrative.
The jury is out on whether or not this turns into a mystery we care about, but the pilot makes a strong case to at least stay tuned in.
