Storyline

A secret service agent, Jennifer Marsh, gets caught in a very personal and deadly cat-and-mouse game with a serial killer who knows that people (being what they are - both curious and drawn to the dark side of things) will log onto an "untraceable" website where he conducts violent and painful murders LIVE on the net. The more people who log on and enter the website, the quicker and more violently the victim dies. Written by McCormack

Trivia

Colin Hanks' serial-dater character mentions Peggy the secretary as an upcoming date. This is a nod to Hanks' appearance on Mad Men (2007) - Hanks plays Father John Gill, a priest who becomes acquainted with Peggy the secretary (played by Elisabeth Moss). See more »

Goofs

When Det. Marsh's electrical system is restored on her vehicle, she makes little effort to check the inside of the vehicle before re-entering it. A highly trained police officer, especially a FBI agent, would have enough sense to check the back seat throughly before making any attempt to re-enter a vehicle considered suspicious. See more »

Quotes

Agent Griffin Dowd: What's he into?
Agent Jennifer Marsh: High-end tech and low-end porn.
Agent Griffin Dowd: You sure he's a guy? If it's a woman, she could be my soulmate.

Good enough to be worth your while, probably not to own.
25 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

The movie had a few things going in its favor. For one, it used reasonable technology and background, so the story wasn't far-fetched. Secondly, and most importantly in my eyes, it did NOT go for shock value. It didn't try to use gore to elicit a reaction from the crowd. Not to say that some scenes weren't rough on the eyes, but it was far from a Saw or Hostel. Thirdly, it honestly kept me on the edge of my seat for a good portion of the movie. And lastly, the ending does not drag itself out. It ends at the logical point.

That having been said, this movie will not change your life. It's a little bit of a commentary on society, but moreso, it's just an entertaining movie to watch.
