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

Throughout the film Megan, as well as Amy are seen video calling eachother. There is one scene where Amy appears to make video calls on her cell phone whilst outside. The viewer gets to see the calls from the recipients perspective and the quality of the picture remains high enough to look more than fine on most of today's wide-screen HD television sets. However, in a later scene, Amy's cell phone model is revealed to be a Motorola V3 Razr. It should be noted that these primitive early generation handsets only captured video in 4:3 ratio, and at a much lower quality then what we see in the movies "found footage". See more »

Goofs

In the shot, after Amy has been slapped, the shadow of a boom mic can clearly be seen at the door right to the stairs. See more »

Amy Herman: No, I...
Lexie: Is that what you think?

Is Megan Missing?
14 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

This movie has a lot of loop holes. Why was the girl who suggested 'Josh' never mentioned since that scene? With the amount of photos and footage the investigators should of gotten a little closer to the girls. How could the parents allow the whole world to see their daughters like this? - I mean it's good to give a heads up about the whole online happening, but really, Goi didn't need to take it this far. He probably turned a lot of his desired viewers away and instead attracted an audience of keen online predators getting ideas.

Has 'Josh' even been found yet? Do they know where that dungeon thing is? Is there a reason why the investigators refused to believe Amy's suspicions of Josh? - If they did, I think a lot would be avoided. The investigators just look really bad career-wise.. don't seem involved almost at all.. Good on them for looking in the bin :-/
