When we see the shot where we see the view from Elizabeth's computer and the hidden camera in her vent simultaneously, she raises her arms which blocks the vent from the web-cam's view. However, the laptop is still in full view from the hidden camera's point of view. It is revealed earlier in the movie that the laptop is using a built in web-cam. This means that if the web-cam cannot see the vent, the camera in the vent should not be able to see the laptop either. See more »

Great modern horror. Not good for my cyber-paranoia.
This movie is very fresh and modern. I've never seen a horror movie done like this before (webcam style). I honestly don't understand all the negative reviews here. This movie was very fun to watch, made me jump a few times, and the story unwound perfectly. Don't be asking yourself "why is she filming this" - that totally defeats the purpose of storytelling. I feel like too many people might be going into this movie with high expectations? Sure there are some logical errors, but what horror movie is completely devoid of those?
Actually, don't take my review into consideration. Only consider all the other negative reviews and just give this movie a try. Then perhaps you'll like it a bit more.
I feel like the build up was great, the storytelling was fresh, and the ending was clever. The overall plot and ending might be a bit too sick and twisted for some (probably not for the average horror movie goer), but this is actually real life. There are some sick people out there and I feel like this movie made a great commentary about it.
