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:
Revealing mistakes: 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 »
Quotes:
Lexie:[telling Megan about Josh] Ooh, and one time, he met George Clooney in person.
Megan Stewart:Nuh-uh.
Lexie:Yeah.
Megan Stewart:Oh my God.
Lexie:And he talked to him for like an hour at this mall, and...
Megan Stewart:What mall?
Lexie:I don't know. We should go and like, stalk him or something.

Fear Mongering and Deplorable, 1 March 2012
Author: Bob Johnson from United States

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.
