Low Budget Serial Killer Flick
20 May 2007 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

It's a whodunit wherein a serial killer stabs his victims on live web cam. The main character, Manny, is a youthful, budding artist who in his spare time watches a sleazy chat website. On one visit to the website he witnesses one of his friends being stabbed. A big part of the story is the relationship that develops between Manny and the Black cop who investigates. This subplot provides story continuity, as the investigation proceeds.

Given that this film is very low budget, the weak production design and uneven sound quality are not surprising. The director does create some suspense by means of the atmospheric lighting. Acting is below average; but again, this is what one would expect for an independently produced low budget film.

A legitimate complaint is the existence of so many plot holes in the script. How did the killer get easy access to the victim's living area without being observed? Why were neighbors not questioned? What about forensics? Is it realistic to think that after the first murder, the website would not be shut down?

"Open Cam" is marginally worth watching, mostly as a technical study of low budget film-making, to see what works and what doesn't work. Yet, even with all the plot holes, I still found the whodunit puzzle engaging enough to hold my attention.
