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

Some rifles used in the movie are airsoft replicas that were purchased at a local airsoft retail store. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Marsh is describing how the killer penetrated her wireless network, she launches the "Horsez" game on her daughter's computer. The taskbar clearly belongs to Windows XP, but the window that pops up is styled like a Vista Aero window. See more »

Quotes

Owen Reilly: [watching his victim in a tub filling up with acid] You know if no one was watching right now, you'd just be sitting in water. But the whole world wants to watch you die, and they don't even know you.

We Have A Mentally Disturbed Generation Of Film Goers!
26 February 2008 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

First of all, even with a scant few trivial character actions that were a tad bit questionable, this film is absolutely - EXCELLENT! How can I say that? Well my wife and I usually get through our bag of popcorn within the first quarter of a film. This time, however, when the film ended we had almost a half bag left - uneaten.

No, it wasn't disgust from anything depicted in the film, it was simply that the film grabbed our attention and virtually never let go.

Now, who am I? Well, I am a scientist and my wife is a British midwife. Yes, we are computer competent and that may be a key element. We are also in our sixties - that may also be another key element.

However, it is my opinion that most of the reviews written here (with the bare exception of the first one), were written by a generation that doesn't really know what terror is. They have been raised by so much simulated on screen violence and fake blood, that virtually nothing scares them anymore.

However again, as a technical consultant, I have traveled to over 30 countries and worked in some brutal and godforsaken areas and witnessed incredible brutality.

Trust me people, there are very scary things and situation in the real world and this film reveals, quite brilliantly, the rapid evolution of one of them within our own society.

For those of you who were not a "bit" frightened, what the hell film did you view?
