Not only is this a relevant film for those who are intertwined with social media, but it is also a fantastic film portraying what is online, what is accessible to the average person, and the repercussions (albeit a bit extreme here). This movie not only captured what talking to strangers on a random chat site can be like, but it also gave you (without you knowing it) an inside look to the Dark Net. No, not the Deep Web, but the dark corner of the Deep Web. The part that is intentionally hidden unless you're invited or stumble across it. I suggest, after watching this movie, to read up on what the DW//DN are. You will be amazed at the similarities in the movie. From the simple link that Pyang*16 sends her (the jumbled mess of a link) to the supposed Red Room references. I loved the ending and the movie. I think I enjoyed the movie more because I understood the DW/DN references. I don't know that those who don't know what it is will enjoy this movie as much, but I sure did.
