Alternate Versions

The film was altered based on advice given by the BBFC at the script stage to avoid a potential 18 certificate. Several lines of sexual dialogue were altered, and the filmmakers were also advised to avoid "novel detail" when it came to shoot the suicide scenes. See more »

Terrible
26 April 2015 | by waterman_harrySee all my reviews

Chatroom's moderately interesting premise and style is disabled incoherently from the get-go by wet performances, a desperate attempt to appeal to angsty teenagers and a genuinely appalling approach to certain social issues. Chatroom tries its best to glamorise cyber-bullying and manipulation. Aaron Taylor-Johnson's sociopathic geek is an over-troped Hollywood act that has really run its course and Johnson brings little talent to the role. What's even more disappointing is that this is part of the filmography of Hideo Nakata, the obviously hit-and-miss Creator of decent horror films like 2002's Dark Water and 1998's Ring.
