Storyline

Megan Stewart, 14, and her best friend Amy Herman, 13, though opposites in personality, are best friends. Megan carries the front of being the most popular girl in school, but this masks a lifestyle of hard partying, drugs, alcohol and indiscriminate sex. Amy, unpopular and socially awkward, clings to her relationship with Megan as a lifeline to social acceptance. Together, these two young girls forge a deep friendship based on their mutual needs. The two girls regularly communicate by web chat cameras or cell phone, and even meet boys online. As Megan seeks friends who are different from her usual posse of hanger-ons, she is introduced by a friend online to a 17 year-old boy named Josh in a chat room. Megan and Josh bond quickly, leaving Amy feeling a bit left out. One day, Megan goes to meet Josh in person, and she is never seen again. Amy launches into a concentrated effort to find her friend. As the media swirls around the story of Megan's disappearance, Amy discovers the ... Written by Michael Goi

Trivia

In October 2011, the New Zealand Censorship Board (OFLC) banned Anchor Bay's release of this film by classifying it as 'Objectionable'. They claimed that it contained sexual violence and sexual conduct involving young people to such an extent and degree, and in such a manner that if it was released it would be 'injurious to the public good'. They went on to say that it relished in the spectacle of one girl's ordeal, including a three-minute rape scene. They also stated that it sexualised the lives of young teenage girls to a 'highly exploitative degree'. See more »

Fear Mongering and Deplorable
1 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't believe some of the reviews being posted on here and it only goes to show what tools we have in today's world.

The movie was PURE TRASH. I have absolutely nothing positive to say about it... I have no doubt that psychos like the one depicted in this exist, but are they the status quo? How many Albert Fish archetypes really exist? Not many... How many Jeffrey Dahmers exist? Not many. This movie tries to make it look as if these people are a dime a dozen.

(Whether you buy that or not is up to you.) But despite this, assume they do exist and that they're potentially even in your neighborhood or something. Do you honestly believe that having only 1 family computer in the middle of the living room is going to prevent your child from being a potential victim of that sort? Surely if you're intelligent enough to know how to watch this piece of trash, then surely you can weigh in on the logic behind my question as well as imagine the numerous other mediums and avenues some sick freak can take advantage of in order to nab some helpless child.

Which brings me back to why this movie is trash: it's nothing but fear mongering in a 1st and 3rd-person perspective.

If the intent behind this crap was to supposedly *warn* parents and children alike of the supposed dangers that exist on the internet, then instead of making this junk, why not instead donate the total amount of cash used for it to something like your local police station or Federal Bureau of Investigations' field office? But no... Instead, we have to epitomize some of the world's worst criminal cases known and depict them as if they're everyday life.

This "film" is trash in the worst definition.
