A new web site allows you to view murders, but once you sign in the viewer always ends up dying within 48 hours. A police officer (Stephen Doriff) and a health department inspector (Natascha McElhone) team up together to find out what is going on while a crazed killer (Stephen Rea) who kidnaps and tortures young women is on the loose and is somehow connected to the site.

Under rated horror film is one of those films that doesn't make you jump out of your seat, but instead slowly works on adding layer upon layer of tension. A much better then usual cast, especially Rea in a creepy turn, stylish direction and effective lighting are it's main pleasures. However, the ending is somewhat neglicent of the rest of the film.

Rated R; Nudity. Extreme Violence and Profanity.
