Good idea for the tech world we live in just not very well done.
Well, first readers choice, bec,chose this movie from the neverending list of b-budget horror movies(i have all kinds of movies). Anyway, the movie, well it isn't good LOL. It is relevant for the times we live in though. The story goes a group of online people get in touch with someone named "dwarfstar" who hosts the chat room. Well the room is one of those suicide pacts where the users get together to commit suicide as a group (cult). The users meet at this abandoned barn, sporatically, and get to know each other, one by one. Don't bother with names, the all use their screen names for the most part. The inevitable happens where no one is who they seem to be compared to who they are in the chat room which mounts the tension. So there is a list of stupid ass things this group does waiting for dwarfstar, and when they decide to leave at sundown, of course no ones cars will start, so they have to spend the night. Of course, at night they aren't alone, there is some evil spirit, or power, or something watching them and putting frightening (to them, not me) visions in their heads. I won't bother going much further in the story, you can watch to get the rest. There is a plot twist, but that won't make up for the rest of the boredom you need to go through to get there. I suppose a netflix night if nothing else is on would be OK. Acting is horrendous, our star plays a ditzy blonde very well (I don't think Robin Leigh as Spaceshot was acting). The scenery is obviously bland and reflects the budget. I can say they did have a halfway decent idea hampered by terrible acting and a hokey idea with the spirit. They did try to make sense of it, up to you to decide if they did. I think I read this was the directors first full length movie, so it did show some promise, only time will tell. 3.4/10 IMDb 3.8
