Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
When Christian Turner gathers together his fiancee Elizabeth and their friends Adam, Benjamin, Piper and Katie to celebrate their high-school graduation, they play the cheeky card game 'taboo' which anonymously confides their secret vices to paper. The following year Christian inherits the grand estate and invites them back for New year's Eve. This time the games are far more serious, but go way weirder then anyone planned, with several unexpected twists.

- Benjamin: Question: Would you sleep with a minor? Answer: yes. Let's begin our slide into the moral abyss. Katie: Oh! Naughty naughty. Adam: Aw, shit, I, for one, had sex before I was fourteen. I don't see what the big deal is. Benjamin: Really. I didn't think that they had altar boys in the, uh, the Jewish faith. Elizabeth: [hurriedly trying to deflect any animosity] Okay, Piper, your turn. Piper: Question: Would you sleep with a person of the same sex? Answer: yes. Christian Turner: What a great game to play with our best friends. Adam: Yeah, fuck Taboo. Let's have an orgy, huh? Elizabeth: Or enroll in group therapy. Benjamin: Well, maybe you need new friends. Piper: Well, actually? We all seem pretty well suited for each other, so far. Elizabeth: [looks at Adam] Your turn. Adam: All right, the question is: Would you have a threesome? The answer is yes. Christian Turner: Two girls and one guy, right? Piper: Does it matter? Katie: Well, Mr. Right Wing Conservative over there looks like he might think two girls might be fun. Huh? [Piper, his current girlfriend, looks at him worriedly] Elizabeth: Okay, my turn. Question: Would you have sex for money? Answer: yes. [She looks at Katie] Katie: I like sex, okay? That does not make me a hooker. At least it doesn't make me a bitch. Benjamin: That's my baby. Katie: Question. Mmm. Would you sleep with your partner's best friend? Answer? A very disappointing no. Christian Turner: Wow. There's one good person amongst us sinners. Katie: Christian. Pardon me, but don't you have to be a lot fatter and less educated to be part of the Christian coalition? Christian Turner: So says the prep school anarchist. Katie: Ah. No, no no. See, I am just a shallow, materialistic party girl, and at least I don't pretend to believe in principles.
[first lines] Piper: [reading from a dictionary] "Taboo: A prohibition against touching, saying, or doing something for fear of immediate harm from a supernatural force." That's creepy. And, and I, I don't, I don't really get it. Elizabeth: Well, the thing about taboos is that society shuns them. But if you really think about it, I mean, there's something very tempting about it. And the game will test whether or not we succumb to the taboo, whatever it might be. Christian Turner: Such as? Elizabeth: Such as, would you cheat on your husband or wife? Katie: Oh, that's considered taboo? See, I just thought it was good Country Club etiquette.
Christian Turner: [answering Katie] Well, I believe in principles. Elizabeth: Surely, this doesn't have any... Benjamin: Christian, stop pouting and, uh, read the last question! Adam: I think he's scared to read the question. [Christian shakes his head, disturbed by what he's reading] Adam: Just read the card! Christian Turner: This - Okay. [shakes his head] Christian Turner: Would you sleep with a relative? Answer: yes. [There are various murmurs of discomposure] Adam: That's fucking disgusting.
[It's New Year's Eve, a year after the team played the Taboo game, and they're all slightly drunk and antagonistic] Benjamin: Ladies, please. I mean, we haven't seen each other since graduation. Could you guys try and be nice, maybe? You know, stop the whiny, insecure, competitive bullshit? Please? Adam: Yeah, I'm the Jew, it's my job!
[They raise their champagne glasses in a toast, as the New Year approaches] Christian Turner: Here, a toast. To the four people in the world that I most love to hate. And [nodding to Elizabeth] Christian Turner: to the one that I hate to love. Elizabeth: [She grins] To relationships that last as long as we live. [She smiles saucily at Christian] Elizabeth: As short as that may be. Piper: To the twelve seconds. Benjamin: [mocking her drunkenness] "Twelve theconds." I'd like to make a toast to bread. Because without bread, there would be no toast. Katie: [to Elizabeth, spitefully] Uh, a toast for the cure to cancer! And, uh, ending world hunger, and everything else I'll never be involved in! Piper: [drunk but happy] To special people! And special times. Adam: Special Olympics!
