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 »

After Megan makes the date with Josh to get ice cream, she gets on a video chat with Amy. Just before Amy's video feed pops up, Michael Goi can be heard calling, "Action." See more »

This movie is the main argument as to why IMDb should have a rating less than 1
11 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

My god where to start.... this movie is so horribly bad that it actually made me write my first review here on IMDb. First of all, the "acting" is an insult and so is the directing and editing. Michael Goi clearly has no idea what he is doing. Technical screw ups aside, which on their own are already enough to drag the movie down to hell, the whole idea, concept and story are messed up as well.

First of all, the whole "Let's pretend this is actual footage" thing just makes no sense. Never really liked the concept to begin with but this movie just doesn't even try, let's ignore the fact that it would never be allowed in a realistic scenario and that a lot of the stuff in the movie wouldn't have been recorded in the first place by a sane teen, how exactly would you get a hold of effing skype calls in the first place? Next issue is how the girls act.... Michael Goi just has no bloody idea. If aliens were tasked with portraying teenaged human beings this is what they would come up with. Doesn't help that no one in the movie can act for their life. Next, for all the people who are saying that it's the message that counts and not the movie. Two things. One, not gonna say that the internet can't be a dangerous place where teens can screw up, but this is just blowing things out of proportion and is nothing but silly fear mongering by a man who doesn't understand the internet and in the spirit of a pre-civilization human is afraid of that unknown. All in all, the message isn't half as important as people think it is. Two, it's still a movie and it can be criticized as such. It's the ever lasting social justice warrior bullshit of "But the movie has a nice and positive message and is a force for good and as such whoever dares to say a bad thing about it is evil!", well guess what, not the world doesn't work like that. Even if this movie cured cancer, stopped all wars, collected kittens and brought them to orphans and then provided them with loving parents and fed every single hungry person in the world, it was still be a bad painful to watch movie.

And finally, about those 22 final minutes people like to bring up. For one it's shameless padding and two, during that rape scene that actress actually smiled, nearly chuckled. I mean bloody hell, can you get any more unprofessional than that? I burst out laughing at that point. I guess if you have a weak stomach and stuff and are easily offended those last parts can be problematic, but all i see are desperate attempts and a little Michael Goi standing in the background and screaming "Ohoh! Look how disturbing it is! This could be your daughter/sister right now! Please by scared by that and like this movie for the great message it's sending! Be disturbed!". This is just pathetic. It's not even a bad movie in the sense Troll 2, The Room or Birdemic are. It's not an enjoyable bad movie, it's just plain bad.

Overall rating, less than zero.
