Interesting idea, terrible execution.
14 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite having some pretty good ideas behind it, this movie was terrible.

Good:

  • The setting was interesting. A bunch of cam-girls who live in the


house of a serial killer and people can pay to (watch them) act out serial killer-y fantasies. That's pretty unique and adequately creepy. You get to see some gore-y shots of dead girls and related. It had all the elements of a good horror movie...they just were totally misused.

  • A few good actors. Terrance Howard and the serial killer dude had


good chemistry. The deaf guy and the main girl were fine. Queen Latifah's cameo was well done. She should've played a bigger role though, would've been funny to see her as a main character in a slasher.

  • It was shot well enough. Sets were good.




Bad:

  • Everything else. The storyline was written in such a disjointed way


that it made no sense. It jumped around and was needlessly difficult to follow. You have the main storyline of a guy in the house murdering women which was super generic but decent. Then you have this other storyline with Terrance Howard which had almost NOTHING to do with the main storyline and was used in a way that rendered it completely pointless (way to waste your best actors). From the preview I expected this to be more like Silence of the Lambs, but it wasn't at all. The concept of a dude watching these girls die via webcam was OK, but not executed in an interesting or substantive way. It wouldn't have changed much if that part wasn't even in the movie (sadly, the same goes for Howard). And just when things start getting interesting, the movie prematurely ends with no resolution whatsoever. It felt like the director didn't quite know what type of movie they wanted to make and used elements of several (silence of the lambs, feardotcom, untraceable, etc), but was unable to connect and interweave them.

  • Maybe it was just the version I saw, but the sound was abysmal. The


music was WAY too loud and all of Howard / killer's dialog was nearly incomprehensible.

  • There are also some stupid plot holes like how the kid magically


"hacked" and got the power to turn back on in the house / website.
