Storyline

A secret service agent, Jennifer Marsh, gets caught in a very personal and deadly cat-and-mouse game with a serial killer who knows that people (being what they are - both curious and drawn to the dark side of things) will log onto an "untraceable" website where he conducts violent and painful murders LIVE on the net. The more people who log on and enter the website, the quicker and more violently the victim dies. Written by McCormack

Trivia

When Jennifer finds the camera mounted on the car, you can see a brief clip from the blog section of killwithme.com and one of the comments, made by "clownz23", says she "holds a gun like a cop only hotter". See more »

Goofs

When Jennifer Marsh's electrical system is restored on her vehicle, she makes little effort to check the inside of the vehicle before re-entering it. A highly trained police officer, especially a FBI agent, would have enough sense to check the back seat throughly before making any attempt to re-enter a vehicle considered suspicious. See more »

You sure he's a guy? If it's a women, she could be my soulmate.
23 November 2008 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

This film brings up all sorts of interesting questions.

Are we accomplices if we watch murder being committed on the Internet. Will we eventually see executions online? What are the limits of the net? All this is interwoven in an exciting police chase for a mentally unstable individual who is seeking revenge for what he considers unreasonable use of the net. Of course, the motive takes while to figure out and, in the meantime, we are treated to a Saw/Hostel type of entertainment as murders do take place in view of the public.

Diane Lane is very good as the FBI agent trying to solve this cyber crime. We all know how these movies end - no surprises there, but it was fun being along for the ride.
