Haunting and emotionally driven teen movie that leaves a impact
This is actually a very emo movie but also very impactful on as well. It shows how sometimes even if some people might look, act alright and fine and dandy but deep inside there can be darkness and pain. This movie portrays what a lot of teens and even adults go through when reality becomes way to difficult to bear. They enter a virtual world, away from reality. I like movies of this sort, in fact this one sort of reminded me of a film called "The Chumscrubber" which is another movie about how reality and virtual reality intertwine in a teens mind. While facing inner personal thoughts and inner demons. This movie is actually executed pretty well when it comes to showing the pain of a emo kid, although it can get annoying sometimes. Slight aspects or parts of it I think some people can maybe relate with. The performances from the cast is raw and real most of the time which really does add to a movie like this. The plot is about a overly sensitive and emotional teenage boy that gets humiliated at school. And despite coming from a very proper lifestyle and rich and successful parents. He feels neglected and goes through emotional instability because he feels that no one understands him. And thus dives into a virtual chat room called the Suicide Room. Which is a group where other emotionally damaged, recluse and secluded people come together in order to make a suicide pact. In another words, it's probably the worst group of people to get involved with. But he feels that this group is the only people that understands him and thus goes very far into the virtual world with them. This is a thoroughly emotionally driven movie, that is slow at times but haunting and compelling at the same time. And the ending leaves a impact and will probably stick with the audiences.
