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

Mildly engaging but full of Clichés and Plot Holes
22 April 2008 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Director Gregory Hoblit (of Primal fear fame) gives us a mildly engaging Horror/Thriller that could have been so much more. The premise of Untraceable is interesting and important in today's society but the execution is laboured and very disappointing. The plot focuses on a crazed killer who creates a website called www.killwithme.com where he streams live videos of people being killed in ever increasingly creative and torturous ways. The morbid curiosity of humans is the driving force behind the killings as the more people who log onto the website the quicker the person dies. This plot line should have allowed the director all manner of possibilities to explore current societal problems, but instead we are dealt a run of the mill film filled with all the usual clichés and a bucket load of plot holes.
