Industrious high school senior Vee (Emma Roberts) is tired of living life on the sidelines. Pressured by friends to join the popular online game Nerve, Vee teams up with a sly and charming competitor (Dave Franco) for just one dare in what seems like harmless fun. But as Vee is caught up in the thrill of the adrenaline-fueled competition, the game takes a sinister turn with increasingly dangerous acts, leading Vee into a high-stakes finale that will determine her entire future.

The Nerve Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital HD give viewers the unique opportunity to experience being a WATCHER or a PLAYER. Upon launching the special features, viewers will choose either WATCHER or PLAYER mode. In WATCHER mode go behind the scenes with 15 “Creating Nerve” pods exploring the making of the film, “The Fat Jewish Gets Tattewish” featuring outtakes from Josh Ostrovsky (aka internet personality ‘The Fat Jewish’) in the tattoo shop, and “The Governor’s Ball Takeover” chronicling a game of dare played at the 2016 Governor’s Ball in New York.
